At a time when all the cricketing activities across the globe are at halt due to coronavirus pandemic, the International Cricket Council (ICC) took to its official Twitter handle and shared the list of top five players who have claimed most international wickets in the last three years.

South African young speedster Kagiso Rabada is topping the list with a total of 231 wickets to his name at an average of 24.76.

Rabada is followed by Australian pacer Pat Cummins, who has scalped 215 wickets for the national side at an average of 24.44 since 2017.

England's Trent Boult and Afghanistan's Rashid Khan occupy third and fourth place, respectively in the list with a total of 209 and 193 wickets.

Bumrah rounds off the top five with 186 wickets in hand for India at an average of 23.34.

The ICC shared the picture of all these five bowlers and wrote, "Kagiso Rabada - 231 @ 24.76, Pat Cummins - 215 @ 24.44, Trent Boult - 209 @ 24.95,Rashid Khan - 193 @ 15.89, Jasprit Bumrah -186 @ 23.34."
