- This record of Robin Singh remains intact.
The limited overs series between India and Sri Lanka is going to start from July 13. First three ODIs will be played and then there will be three T20 matches. Shikhar Dhawan will lead India on the tour of Sri Lanka, as a team led by Virat Kohli is on a tour of England. When India and Sri Lanka face each other, then many records will be made and many will be destroyed. Before the start of the series, let us tell you about the bowler who took the most number of 5 wickets in an innings in ODI between India and Sri Lanka. This record is recorded in the name of former all-rounder Robin Singh of the Indian team.
No one can match Robin yet
Robin Singh was a right-arm medium pacer in his tour and batted with the left hand. He played one Test and 136 ODIs for India. But Robin took five wickets in an innings twice in ODIs against Sri Lanka and made such a record, which is still intact after more than two decades. Even though you may find this record ‘small’, but till now no Indian-Sri Lanka bowler has been able to break it or equal it. Apart from Robin, 19 bowlers have taken five wickets in an innings but none has been able to do so more than once.
Robin took these wickets in 1997 and 1999
Robin Singh took 5 wickets against Sri Lanka for the first time in the year 1997. He showed the way to the pavilion to five Sri Lankan players by giving 22 runs in 5 overs in the match played in Guwahati. India won this match by 7 wickets. Robin did this feat for the second time in the 1999 World Cup match. He hit the ‘claw’ of wickets against Sri Lanka in 9.3 overs in the match played in Taunton. Let us tell you that this is the same match, in which Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid had a historic partnership of 318 runs for the second wicket.
