3 great spinners who have taken 4 wickets in ODI cricket most times

Bangladesh suffered their first ODI series defeat at home in the last seven years in their first international outing in 2023 against England. It was their only ODI series defeat at home since November 2014. Their latest ODI win at home came against mighty India in December 2022, when they won 2-1.

Their dominance at home is due to spin friendly pitches in Mirpur, Sylhet and Chattogram. In the latest ODIs against England, Shakib Al Hasan, Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan Miraj took a combined 17 wickets in just three innings. In the bowling chart, experienced England spinner Adil Rashid is on top with eight wickets. 

Shakib achieved a historic feat during the England ODI as he became the first Bangladesh cricketer to take 300 ODI wickets. He remains Bangladesh's leading wicket-taker in all three formats and is ranked first in ODIs and T20Is in the current ICC all-rounder charts.

He registered his 14th four-wicket haul in ODIs with a four-for in the third ODI against England. However, two more spinners have taken more four-wicket hauls in ODIs than Shakib. So, let's take a look at the top three spinners with most four-wicket hauls in ODIs.

14 - Shakib Al Hasan

Bangladesh's T20I skipper won the player of the match award for his 71-ball 75 and four wickets in the latest ODI against England. He completed 300 wickets in ODIs in just 227 matches with 14 four-wicket hauls, including four five-wicket hauls.

17 - Saklain Mushtaq

Saqlain remains Pakistan's leading spin wicket-taker in ODIs after Shahid Afridi played over 200 matches. Saqlain took 288 wickets in just 169 ODIs at an average of 21.78, including 17 four-wicket hauls, four more than Shahid Afridi's 10.

25 - Muttiah Muralitharan

Despite retiring from international cricket in 2011, the legendary Sri Lankan spinner still holds the major bowling records in Tests and ODIs. Muralitharan is the highest wicket-taker with 534 wickets in 350 matches, with 25 four-wicket hauls, including ten five-wicket hauls.
