In 2016 and 2019, Starc had also broken Saqlain's records to become the fastest to 100 and 150 ODI wickets. Rashid Khan improved on Starc's sprint to 100 ODI wickets in 2018, but he still holds the 150-wicket record. Since Starc's debut in October 2010, only one bowler has picked up more ODI wickets - Lasith Malinga, with 232 wickets in 154 matches. A few other bowlers have played roughly the same number of matches as Starc during this period, but none have come close to his tally.
Despite not playing ODIs regularly, Starc has rarely struggled for form. Since his debut in 2010, Starc has played only 45.9 % of Australia's ODIs, missing 118 out of 222 matches. Starc has never gone more than two matches in a row without picking up a wicket.
The highlights of Starc's ODI career are his World Cup performances: he was the highest wicket-taker in both the 2015 (22 wickets) and 2019 tournaments. His 27 wickets in 2019 are the most for a bowler in a single World Cup. Overall, Starc's 49 wickets at the World Cup have come at an average of 14.61 and strike rate of 19.1.
One of the features of Starc's ODI career is his ability to dismiss batters early in their innings: 112 of his 200 ODI scalps have been of batters in single digits, including 44 ducks.
Though Starc has never taken a hat-trick in his ODI career, he has had back-to-back wickets on 13 occasions. No one else has been on a hat-trick in ODIs more often since Starc's debut. Eight of the 13 instances came after the opposition was five down, indicating Starc's ability to run through the lower-middle order and tail. Starc has taken 56 wickets of the bottom four batters at an average of 9.41, the third best for any bowler since his debut (min 25 wickets).
