Haris Rauf Emerges as Most Expensive Pakistani Bowler in ICC World Cup 2023

Pakistan’s journey in the ICC World Cup 2023 concluded with a decisive loss to England, bringing attention to fast bowler Haris Rauf for an unwelcome reason.

In the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 fixture against England at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens, Haris Rauf set a new record as the most expensive Pakistani bowler in a single edition of the 50-over world championship. The right-arm pacer returned with figures of 3-64 in 10 overs, contributing to his overall tournament performance.

It is noteworthy that Sri Lanka fast bowler Dilshan Madushanka narrowly missed being second in the list, having conceded 525 runs in nine innings during the ongoing tournament.

In nine World Cup matches, Haris Rauf bowled 79 overs, conceded 533 runs, and secured 16 wickets, maintaining an average of 33.31, an economy of 6.74, and a strike rate of 29.64. This surpasses the previous record set by England leg-spinner Adil Rashid in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, who conceded 526 runs.
