ICC World Cup: Tim Southee scalps career-best seven-wicket haul to rock England

New Delhi: In a dream spell, medium-pacer Tim Southee scalped seven wickets to help New Zealand bundle out England for a paltry 123 in 33.2 overs in the ninth match of the ongoing ICC World Cup 2015.

The medium-pacer's figure of 9-0-33-7 is the best for a Kiwi bowler in limited-overs cricket.

The 26-year-old exhibited perfect example of swing bowling by forcing English batsmen play the veritably moving ball every now and then. But still, returning with a seven-wicket haul is any bowler's dream.

With his stupendous spell, Southee also found himself in an exclusive four-member club that has taken seven wickets at ICC's flagship event.

Here is a look at seven-wicket hauls in World Cup, which has legends like Glenn McGrath and Winston Davies.

  1. Glenn McGrath (Australia): 7-4-15-7 (2.14) vs Namibia at Potchefstroom, South Africa in 2003
  2. Andy Bichel (Australia): 10-0-20-7 (2.00) vs England at Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 2003
  3. Tim Southee (New Zealand): 8.5-0-33-7 (3.73) vs England, Wellington, New Zealand, today
  4. Winston Davies (West Indies): 10.3-0-51-7 (4.85) vs Australia, Leeds, England in 1983
