One Day International (ODI) cricket was first introduced in 1971 as Australia faced England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). At first, it was a 60-over-per-side match. Meanwhile, the cricket world cup was introduced first in 1974 after the limited-overs format introduced in 1971. West Indies were the first team to lift the limited-overs ICC trophy in the inaugural edition. However, it soon changed and became a 50 over per side game. Time fills and many teams had lifted the ODI trophy in different ICC tournaments rather than ICC World Cup like Champions Trophy started in 1998.

The performers on the biggest stage can make one a hero or villain in front of fans, depending upon the outcome. The ODI fixture of 2023 was a bit hectic compared to other years because of cricket's biggest festival, the 13th edition of the ODI Cricket World Cup which was recently played in India. It's time, we look at the players who have picked up the Most ODI Wickets in 2023 in this article of SportzPoint.

Kuldeep Yadav is if not best but one of the best spin bowlers in the world right now. He has already amassed 167 international wickets. Yadav showed his marvelous skills in the Asia Cup 2023, which earned him the Man of the Series award. Then he picked up 15 wickets in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 to help India reach the final. The wrist spinner has picked up 48 wickets in just 27 innings in 2023 for India in the ODI format.

Siraj is considered to be one of the best fast bowlers in the world right now. He is also ranked third in the ICC ODI bowler's ranking right now. Siraj made his debut in 2017 and has since become an integral part of the Indian bowling attack. Since then, he has shown consistent improvement in his performance and has established himself as a key player for the Indian team. Mohammed Siraj took 10 wickets and finished as the 2nd highest wicket-taker in the Asia Cup 2023. He then picked up 14 wickets in the World Cup 2023.

Mohammed Shami was India's most important bowling asset in the recently played World Cup 2023. At first, he was not but he rebuilt his stature and gave his everything in the competition. Shami came, saw, and conquered. It was unfortunate that India couldn't lift the ultimate prize but Shami will be remembered surely as an Indian Bowling Legend. The veteran pacer picked up 24 wickets in just 7 matches to help India reach the Final with a dominant run.

After playing second fiddle to Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj in the first four matches of the World Cup, Shami dazzled onto the scene once given the opportunity. He was called into the side after Hardik Pandya's injury and gave it all. Shami is likely to receive the 2023 Arjuna Award after a spectacular year with 43 wickets.
