Australia's Mitchell Starc, arguably one of the greatest speedsters, eyes the 200-wicket mark in ODIs. He claimed figures worth 1/27 in the first ODI against Zimbabwe.


Starc marked his ODI debut against India in 2010. Since then, the pacer has captured 196 scalps across 100 ODIs, averaging 22.47.

200 wickets

Starc will be only the sixth bowler to attain the feat for Australia after Glenn McGrath (380), Brett Lee (380), Shane Warne (291), Mitchell Johnson (239), and Craig McDermott (203).


Starc could become the fastest ever to 200 wickets in ODI cricket. Pakistan’s Saqlain Mushtaq holds the record (104 matches). The former needs four scalps in the next three games to usurp Mushtaq.

Notable feats

Starc took 77 matches to become the fastest to 150 ODI scalps. And, he remains the second-fastest to 100 scalps (52).
