The year 2022 entertained fans with many multi-format series played between different countries. Despite the primary focus on the shortest format due to the multi-team T20 events such as the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup, there were quite a few ODI matches.

This year’s first series was played between Ireland and the West Indies, while the last was held between Bangladesh and India. Several bowlers impressed with their superior consistency and rocked the charts with some brilliant bowling performances. The main dominance in the highest number of wickets was by the Associate Nations players.

Bilal Khan van Oman had a memorable 2022 as he ended the year ranked first among the top 10 highest wicket takers. Bilal played 16 matches and went on to take 43 wickets with 31/5 being his best performance. Bilal also took a whopping three five-wicket hauls. Likewise Nepalese bowler Sompal Kami also had a brilliant 2022, as he picked up 35 scalps in 20 matches
