Best Bowling In An Inning

In the game of Cricket, pace bowlers bowl first in the start of an inning. This is because initially the leather cricket ball is stiff and smooth that makes it pass through air swiftly. After 10 overs in a One Day Match, comes the turns of a fast bowler whose main job is to take as many wickets as possible. The main motive of any bowler, a pace or a fast bowler, is to take maximum number of wickets in an inning. This increases the probability of any team to win.
