Today, let’s talk about the Cricketers who took the most wickets in Cricket World Cup 1983. One day cricket matches have pro-batting structure. The results of the matches are based more on batting performances than bowling. There are several factors that can affect and influence the performance of the bowling in the ODI matches and it can give all the credit to the batting side for winning the matches.
If bowlers have to win the matches then they have to either restrict the batting side to the low scores or to get the wickets in quick sessions. The teams with consistent bowling performance have higher chances of winning the matches.
Most Wickets in Cricket World Cup 1983
During the World Cup ’83, bowlers were always under tremendous pressure during the matches. In every session of the match, the bowler had to perform better. Most bowlers get fewer chances against the in-form batsmen like Gower, Richards, Kapil Dev, Sandeep Patil and many others. Sometimes, few bad balls bowled in an over could change the direction of the match.
But there were few bowlers, who had an excellent time during the World Cup tournament. The bowlers such as Sir Richard Hadlee, Roger Binny, Ashantha de Mel, Madan Lal, Abdul Qadir and few others never let the opportunities to go away. The superior bowling performances that were supported well by the fielders helped in restricting the batting side. They all, thus put their names into the list of the most wickets in Cricket World Cup 1983.
