ODI Bowler Rankings 2009 (all teams)

The ODI Bowler’s Ranking 2009 is out! in the third edition of Vineet’s Cricket Rankings (Check out the ODI Bowler Rankings 2008 here)! And there are lots of surprises here, in fact, like the batting Top 30, the bowling Top 30 almost got entirely revamped with a lot of new bowlers coming in. The biggest setback was that Australians, South Africans and Sri Lankans who were at the Top just slipped away with minnows dominating this year’s list. Is there an uprising on the horizon?

The ODI Bowler’s Ranking 2009 is out! in the Fourth edition of Vineet’s Cricket Rankings (Check out the ODI Bowler Rankings 2008 here)! And there are lots of surprises here, in fact, the bowling Top 30 almost got entirely revamped with a lot of new bowlers coming in. The biggest setback was that Australians, South Africans and Sri Lankans who were at the Top just slipped away and the minnows dominating this year’s list. Is there an uprising on the horizon?

At the top of the heap is Mashrafe Mortaza of Bangladesh, who captured 14 wickets in the just 6 matches he played at 10.92 apiece. And he spent a miserly 2.78 runs per over to land right on top. He emerged out of nowhere in 2008 to be at the top in 2009. That’s really an awesome talent to watch out for. He has been performing for Bangladesh for quite some time now and has been in this site’s Top 30 lists for 3 times earlier too.

David Johnston of Ireland came a surprise second taking 13 wickets in 7 matches at 14.46 apiece. And he spent a miserly 3.02 runs per over to land right on top at the second place.

Shiferli of Netherlands was 3rd claiming 16 wickets in 6 matches at 15.06 runs per wicket and an economy rate of 4.25 rpo

Abdul Razzak of Bangladesh was 4th claiming 22 wickets in 8 matches at 15.09 runs per wicket and an economy rate of 4.69 rpo. Shakib Al Hassan, again of Bangladesh took the 5th spot claiming 26 wickets in 19 matches at 22.88 apiece at a very miserly economy rate of 3.48 rpo. (there is no Indian in the list!!)
