And yes, he's a decent bowler but to call him the leading ODI wicket-taker for 2006 is utterly laughable, given that no Bangladesh game merits ODI status, never mind Bermuda and Canada games.
Just because he's been around for a while doesn't mean he's not still young and has plenty of scope to improve.
And, the fact is that he took more wickets in games with ODI status than anyone else in 2006, therefore calling him the leading ODI wicket-taker for 2006 is not utterly laughable. It is correct. You having some vendetta against the smaller countries' rights to play games does not change facts.
