5) Richard Hadlee

Lets time travel to witness this fantastic art of swing bowling in the land Brisbane in 1985 where he dismissed the entire top Australian batsman cheaply which fetched Kiwis an innings victory down under. His run-up and his bowling where batsman finds it difficult to predict the swing bowling was just the treat for the eyes. It was a win to cherish down under in the history of New Zealand cricket. He just leaked 52 runs and picked up a mammoth nine wickets out of the possible ten wickets. We take this opportunity to wish Richard Hardlee a speedy recovery from cancer.

4) Stuart Broad

2015 Ashes will always remain a forgettable outing for Australia as they were revenged ruthlessly by England to regain the beautiful ashes series and was one of the best bowling performances of Stuart broad in ashes. England won the toss in the match and asked Australia to bat first. Alastair Cook and England fans would have been hoping for 2 or 3 wickets in the first session, but what followed is something nobody expected. Australia was bowled out for 60 runs as broad derailed the Aussie line up without mercy. He took eight wickets giving away just 15 runs. This will surely remain one of the all-time great bowling performances in the history of world cricket.  

3) Jim Laker

This English man bowled 55 overs in the game, whereas other bowlers bowled around 44 overs together and failed to dismiss a single batsman. This match was held in Old Trafford in the year 1956 and the pitch was not very difficult to bat on. He scalped all the ten wickets of the innings and gave England a thumping inning wins in the match. It had all the art which the bowling spell should have. The swing length was perfect and troubled the batsman and he was consistent with the length throughout the innings.

2) Muttiah Muralitharan


England was well set in the match to chase down the target of 325 as their opening pair cruised to 84-0. Winning was in the sight of English players, sadly only till Murali has found his magic. He dismissed Cook, Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Flintoff and Geriant Jones for Single-digit scores which started paving way for might win for Sri Lankans. His accurate length added a perfect turn made him the dangerous in the world and was one of the best bowling performances of all time by Muttiah Muralitharan. Lanka is still searching for their next Murali and it is not going to be easy for them to get a replacement. He picked up eight wickets for 70 runs and Sri Lanka won that game by one hundred and thirty-four runs.

1) Anil Kumble

Chasing 400 plus to win, Pakistan surrendered to this historical spell and one of the best bowling performances of Anil Kumble.
