This article will list down the Test bowlers who have picked the most wickets in their first 50 Test matches of their career.
With 275 wickets in his first 50 Tests, Ravichandran Ashwin leads the pack of legendary bowlers who shined bright very earlier in their career.
The other legendary names on the list are Dennis Lillee, Muttiah Muralitharan, Allan Donald, and Dale Steyn.
Let’s find here the list of top ten bowlers to pick maximum wickets in their first 50 Test matches.
|PLAYER||COUNTRY||WICKETS AFTER 50 TESTS||AVERAGE|
- Allan Donald has the best bowling average for any bowler who picked more than 250 wickets in their first 50 Tests. Find here how to calculate the bowling average.
- However, Malcolm Marshall has the best average on this list after the first 50 long format games – 21.42.
- Yasir Shah and Kagiso Rabada are the two current players who might get into this list when they play their 50th Tests.
- Jasprit Bumrah, after 19 Tests so far, has 83 wickets to his name. We will have to wait and see how the Indian pacer moves from now, mostly when he plays more in the subcontinent conditions.
