In cricket , a five-wicket haul (also known as a “five-for” or “fifer”) [1] refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings . This is Regarded as a significant achievement, [2] and as of 2014 only 42 bowlers-have taken at least 15 five-wicket hauls at international level In Their cricketing careers. [3] Courtney Walsh , a former cricketer, who represented the West Indies cricket team from 1984 to 2001, took 23 five-wicket hauls in international cricket . [3] [4] He played 132 Tests and 205 One Day Internationals (ODIs), and took 519 and 227 wickets respectively. [4] A right-arm fast bowler , Walsh took 22 five-wicket hauls in Tests and 1 in ODIs. [5] In 1987, when he was named one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year , the cricket almanack Wisden noted his “three distinct speeds, all delivered with the same action”, and his sparing use of the bouncer , his shorter deliveries The threatening the batsman’s rib-cage, a tactic which, allied to change of pace, produced many catches in the short-leg area off splice or glove.

Walsh made his Test debut in November 1984 against Australia at the WACA Ground , Perth , a West Indies game won by an innings and 112 runs . [8] His first Test five-wicket haul came in 1987 against New Zealand at the Eden Park , Auckland ; The match was won by West Indies by 10 wickets. [9] His career-best bowling figures were for 7 runs against the same team at the Basin Reserve , Wellington , in February 1995. [10] He took another 6 wickets in the next innings, Accumulating 13 wickets for 55 runs in the match-his solitary pair of five-wicket hauls. West Indies won the match by an innings and 322 runs, and his performance earned him a man of the match award. [11]Walsh took more five-wicket hauls against England than any other nation: five. [10] He took ten or more wickets in a match on three occasions. [12]

Walsh made his ODI debut during the 1984-85 World Series Cup against Sri Lanka at the Tasmania Cricket Association Ground , Hobart . [13] His solitary ODI five-wicket haul against the same team in December 1986, a match which West Indies won at the Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium , Sharjah by 193 runs. He took five wickets conceding one run in the match. [14] ESPNcricinfo declared that it was the “cheapest” five-wicket haul in the history of international cricket. [15] As of 2014, he is sixteenth among all-time combined five-wicket haul takers. [3]
