Haris Rauf becomes Pakistan’s third-fastest bowler with 50 ODI wickets. Rauf accomplished the feat during Pakistan’s Super Four match versus Bangladesh in the 2023 Asia Cup.

Haris Rauf, Pakistan’s star pacer, set a new record by being the country’s third-fastest bowler to 50 ODI wickets. On Wednesday, September 6, he accomplished the accomplishment during Pakistan’s Super 4 match versus Bangladesh in the ongoing Asia Cup at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Rauf’s 145 kph thunderbolt knocked the bails off the stumps, sending teenage Bangladesh hitter Towhid Hridoy back to the pavilion for a meager two runs. The speedster hit the 50-wicket mark in ODIs in 27 matches, tying him for third position with veteran bowler Waqar Younis.

Hasan Ali of Pakistan holds the record for getting the fastest 50 ODI wickets for the country, doing it in 24 matches. Meanwhile, star pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi has 50 wickets in 25 games and is second in the table.

Pakistan beat Bangladesh by seven wickets

In terms of the game, Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat first. Their decision backfired as Pakistan’s bowling attack demolished the top order. Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah led Pakistan’s attack, finishing with 4/19 and 3/34, respectively. Notably, Pakistan knocked out Bangladesh for 193 in 38.4 overs.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan was key for his team, scoring 53 off 57 deliveries. Mushfiqur Rahim, the wicketkeeper-batter, contributed significantly as well, hitting 64 runs. Except for Shakib Al Hasan and Rahim, no other Bangladesh batter could withstand Pakistan’s pace assault.

During the 194-run chase, the hosts got off to a good start. Imam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Rizwan batted brilliantly as Babar Azam’s team chased down the mark in 39.3 overs. The first batter scored 78 runs on 84 pitches, including five fours and four sixes. Rizwan, on the other hand, scored 63 runs off 79 balls, including seven boundaries and one maximum. Bangladesh’s Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, and Mehidy Hasan each took one wicket.
