World No 1 Bowler in Cricket

The best bowlers of Cricket in the history of test cricket haven’t just shown us exceptional skill; they also made their ability an artform in the sport. Most of us often tend to talk a lot more about the batsmen in Cricket. Be it in the past or present-day; batsmen tend to get a lot more limelight comparatively. Today, we compare the batsmen and have a ‘Fab 4’ as well. However, there’s hardly any such thing for bowlers. However, there have been bowlers that have dominated in specific eras as well. Twenty-five-year-old New Zealander Trent Boult has taken 19 Test wickets in 2014 and made an excellent contribution to New Zealand’s 2-1 Test series win over the West Indies this summer. The left-arm naturally swings the ball back into right-handers, taking many wickets bowled or LBW.

As per ODI results, Trent Bould from New Zealand is considered as the No 1 among the list with 722 ratings, followed by Jasprit Bumrah from India with 719 rating points.
