Vettori is highest wicket-taker in ODIs in 2007

December 31, 2007 23:37 IST
Daniel Vettori's five-wicket haul (5/7) against Bangladesh in the third ODI on Monday was just his second in one-day internationals, eclipsing his 5-30 against West Indies in 2004.

It took the spinner's career total to 207, surpassing Chris Harris as New Zealand's highest wicket-taker in one-day internationals. Vettori also finished 2007 as the leading one-day wicket-taker in the world with 43 victims.
