Australia’s Mitchell Starc becomes the quickest ODI bowler to achieve this accomplishment.
Australia’s Mitchell Starc became the ODI bowler with the fastest 200-wicket total on Saturday. In the third and final ODI, which Australia ultimately lost by three wickets, he so accomplished the feat against Zimbabwe. In the match, the left-arm seamer only claimed one wicket. He ultimately got rid of Ryan Burl in the 37th over of the game, giving him 200 ODI wickets total.
Thus, with capturing 200 wickets in 102 games, Mitchell Starc broke the previous record held by Pakistani spinner Saqlain Mushtaq. Mushtaq has achieved the feat in 104 games.
While Brett Lee achieved 200 wickets in 112 games, Allan Donald of South Africa did so in 117 games.

Zimbabwe shocked Australia at nearly full strength before defeating them by three wickets in the third one-day international in Townsville.
Zimbabwe managed to defeat the cricketing giant for the first time in Australia despite a wobbly chase as they brought in the target in the 39th over, setting off scenes of euphoria. Leg-spinner Ryan Burl (5-10) was instrumental in getting the hosts out for just 141.
Zimbabwe won the third game to complete the three-game series.
In their first series in Australia since 2004, Zimbabwe failed to remain competitive in the first two games at the same venue. On Wednesday, they were comprehensively trounced for only 96 runs.
By winning the toss for the first time in the series, Chakabva gained his confidence. He then frequently used his precise attack to take out Australia’s poor batting order.
Only two batsmen managed to reach double digits, and David Warner, Australia’s star opener, was the cornerstone of their innings, which lasted just 31 overs (94).
