6. Jasprit Bumrah (India) – all 2% votes
Jasprit Bumrah is trolled often for taking wickets in no-balls but that doesn’t take away his credit of finishing as India’s best ODI bowler in 2017 with an impressive tally of 39 wickets. The medium pacer has taken 23 games to take these many scalps, finishing with an average of 26.25. Overall, he finished third, behind Pakistan’s Hasan Ali and Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan.
Bhuvneshwar Kuma (India)
Bhuvneshwar Kumar also had a good 2017 as he finished with 28 ODI wickets, finishing as the third best Indian bowler after Bumrah and Hardik Pandya. The Indian spearhead took 24 matches for his scalps at an average of 33.89. And like Bumrah, he also finished with a five-wicket haul this year.
Quinton de Kock (South Africa)
Quinton de Kock finished as the sixth highest run-getter in the ODIs in 2017, amassing 956 runs in 19 matches at an average of 53.11. He is, however, the best-placed South African batsman in that list, beating Faf du Plessis (905 runs). He hit two tons in 2017, with the highest being an unbeaten 168 against Bangladesh in October.
