India fast bowler Mohammed Shami achieved yet another major milestone in the ICC World Cup 2023 on Wednesday to put his team in a commanding position in the ongoing semi-final against New Zealand in Mumbai.

Shami sent back captain Kane Williamson to complete 50 wickets in the ODI World Cup and become the fastest bowler to achieve the feat.

Australia left-arm speedster Mitchell Starc had held this record before it was shattered by Shami, who took just 795 balls to reach the landmark. Starc had done it in 941 deliveries.
