Shami's first five-wicket haul in the World Cup occurred during the 2019 edition against England.
Notably, Shami's dismissal of Will Young not only marked an extraordinary achievement but also propelled him past the legendary spinner Anil Kumble's record of 31 wickets in ODI World Cups.
This remarkable feat has elevated Shami to the third position in the all-time list of Indian World Cup wicket-takers. He now stands behind Javagal Srinath and Zaheer Khan, both of whom have secured 44 wickets each in the tournament.
Shami's current tally of World Cup wickets stands at an impressive 36.
With final figures of 5/54, Shami delivered the performance of a lifetime in men's ODI World Cups, surpassing his previous best bowling figures of 5/51.
His remarkable achievements have not only secured India's position in the tournament but have also added a new chapter to his storied cricketing career.
