ODI Bowler Rankings 2012 (all teams)

The ODI Bowler’s Ranking 2012 is out! in the Seventh edition of Vineet’s Cricket Rankings (Check out the ODI Bowler Rankings 2011 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. Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and West Indies did quite well to claim 4 spots in top 30. However, England, South Africa and Australia with 5 in Top 30 stood heads over shoulders above others. And England bowlers toppers Australian in 1 to 1. Hence England emerged the strongest bowling team this year.

Sohag Gazi (Bangladesh) found himself at a very unfamiliar spot – the top of the list! He took 9 wickets in just 5 matches at an average of 17.33 and an astounding rate of 3.39 rpo! Narine of West Indies also found his way into Top 30 by landing right at No 2. He took 34 wickets in 17 matches at an average of 17.64 and an economy rate of 3.66!!

Bangladesh ended their last year’s drought in this list by claiming the third spot with ever so reliable Abdur Razzak claiming 16 wickets in 9 matches with an average of 20.75 and economy rate of 3.95. Finn (England) won England many games and effectively overtook Swann as the leading spinner in his team by claiming 20 wickets in 14 matches at an average of 20 and an economy rate of 4.2. Saeed Ajmal continued his brilliant form by retaining his place in Top 5 once again! He took 31 wickets in 17 matches at an average of 21.12 and an economy rate of 4.31.
