7. Trent Boult (New Zealand) – 25 wickets
New Zealand’s pace spearhead; Trent Boult had a decent year in 50-overs format. But it wasn’t as good as 2015 where he was the third leading wicket-taker of the year. The ICC no.1 ODI bowler had a bright start to 2016 as he claimed 10 wickets in 4 games against Pakistan and Australia at home. After that New Zealand had to play outside home, in India and Australia. Against India, apart from the Mohali ODI, where Kohli smacked him all around the park, he picked up 2 wickets in each of the games.
Similarly, Boult had a horrifying Canberra ODI but barring that he picked up wickets in remainder of the matches Down Under. The 27-year-old ended up with 25 wickets in 13 ODIs with an economy of 5.5.
