Here we enlist the bowlers who have dismissed the most number of different batsmen in their career (minimum 200 wickets). This is not your usual list with the leading wicket-takers, but the one which counts a particular batsman as one unit and the total number that appears along with the name of the bowler is the number of different batsmen they have dismissed in one-day international cricket.

7. Chaminda Vass – 200:

Chaminda Vaas was a very reliable new-ball bowler for Sri Lanka. He was not fiercely quick but was very accurate and could seam and swing the ball nicely. Vaas has exactly 400 wickets in 322 ODIs which include a hat-trick off the first three balls of a match in the 2003 World Cup. He managed to dismiss 200 different batsmen in his career.
