Pakistan and South Africa dominant in death overs

The success of any side in ODI cricket is gauged by the success of their bowlers in restricting the charge led by the opposing batsmen. Hence, the crucial factor of excelling in the death overs of an innings is of prime importance for any quality bowling side.

In this aspect, it can be observed that Pakistan and South Africa clearly reign supreme of bowling the most economically in the phase of 41-50 overs of an innings over the past 2 years. Statistics show that these two teams have maintained the lowest economy rate out of all teams since the Champions Trophy in the last 10 overs of ODI innings.

Pakistan possess an economy rate of just 6.31, second-best only to South Africa. This tight bowling and impressive figures can be credited to the brilliant fast bowlers that both teams have in their respective lineups.
