Take a look at these top 10 bowlers who bowled mind boggling number of deliveries in their ODI careers.

Together they bowled 1,55,202 deliveries which equals 25,867 overs. 

Let me know if you ever expect these numbers.

That was an awkward stat but

That was an awkward stat but interesting and a first I beleive. The question is does this stat really measure anything? I assumed Warne would be in there somewhere though.

Stormy, its always great to hear from you!

Can make out two things from the stat:
a) Longevity of careers (one needs to play more to bowl more)
b) These bowlers were the front-line bowlers/workhorse/main wicket-takers for their respective teams (they were the go to person for their captain to get the breakthrough, that's why they bowled so many overs)

Warne is at no. 19 in terms of balls bowled, hence didn't find a place in this list.
