2) 5-1 Vs Sri Lanka, 1986


This is the only word which could describe one of the best bowling figures of all time. Playing on a slow wicket at Sharjah West Indies managed to score 248 runs with Richardson scoring his debut century. In reply Sri Lanka were reduced to pieces as Walsh took his solitary five wicket haul in ODI’s.

Marshall and Harper gave away 24 runs in 14 overs and took 3 wickets in total. After the top order collapsed Sri Lanka’s tail was exposed to some hostile fast bowling by the West Indian great. They had no answer to the incoming swinging bowls as stumps kept on rattling. Walsh figures read 4.3-3-1-5 which clearly shows his domination. He was adjusted the Man of the Match.
