Shami becomes fastest to 50 wickets in ODI World Cup history

Mohammed Shami’s remarkable journey in the ODI World Cup persisted as the Indian pacer achieved a historic milestone during the semifinal against New Zealand on Wednesday. The right-arm pacer, Shami, etched his name in history as the fastest bowler to reach 50 wickets in the World Cup. He accomplished this feat by dismissing Tom Latham, trapping him in front of the stumps at the bustling Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Shami achieved the feat in 17 innings, breaking the record previously held by Australian pace spearhead Mitchell Starc, who took 19 innings to reach the milestone.
