Bengaluru, Nov 12: Bas de Leede on Sunday became the highest wicket-taker in the ODI World Cups for the Netherlands in the ICC ODI World Cup match against India at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Bas de Leede, after dismissing Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, went past his father Tim de Leede’s record of 14 wickets in as many matches. Bas has now taken 15 wickets in just nine ODI World Cup matches.
Tim Leede played in three ODI World Cups in 1996, 2003 and 2007. Bas racked up his best bowling figures of 9-0-62-4 against Babar Azam’s Pakistan on October 6 in Hyderabad.
Bas has taken 15 wickets in the ODI World Cup and is the highest wicket-taker for the Netherlands in the ongoing ODI World Cup.
Bas de Leede is currently sixth on the list of bowlers with the most wickets by a Dutch bowler in ODIs. Mudassar Bukhari, former skipper Pieter Seelaar, Ryan ten Doeschate, Peter Borren and Logan van Beek are the top five wicket-takers for the Netherlands in the ODIs.
