A combination of records noted for each bowler in a single inning- number of overs bowled, number of maiden overs rolled, number of runs conceded, and number of wickets taken defines the bowling figure. The best-considered option for bowlers in any format of the game is wicket-taking. Nevertheless, in ODI, the bowlers with a good economy play a crucial role in the team’s success. They are the unsung heroes who can change the game’s decision by just one wicket-taking or maiden over. Kenya played its first ODI match on February 18, 1996, against India at Barabati Stadium in Kolkata. They registered their first win in an ODI against West Indies in a group stage match at Pune.
