Attack - Year - Total Wickets in an year

Jasprit + Shami + Ishant - 2018 - 136

Garner + Holding + Marshall - 1984 - 130

Morkel + Ntini + Steyn - 2008 - 123

Ambrose + Marshall + Walsh - 1988 - 118

Morkel + Philander + Steyn - 2012 - 108



The stat is wrong. Donald and Pollock I believe both took historically large totals in 1998 (Donald I believe 2nd most of all time, Pollock was top 10 for a pace).... together they must have taken around 150-160 wickets, which I believe stands as the record for a new ball partnership. Add in someone like Kallis to the three, who played in all their tests that year, you are left with an amount comfortably above any of these totals. Maybe even Fanie De Villiers, although he retired after the Australia series and didnt tour England.



I took it from the image i have posted.
