In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five–for" or "fifer")[1][2] occurs when a bowler takes five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded by critics as a notable achievement,[3] equivalent to a century from a batsman.[4]

Taking a five-wicket haul at Lord's earns the bowler a place on the Lord's honours boards.[5]

As of 2022, only eleven cricketers have taken a five-wicket haul in all three international formats of the game (Test cricket, One Day International and Twenty20 International): Sri Lankan's Ajantha Mendis and Lasith Malinga, Indian's Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav, New Zealander Tim Southee, South African's Imran Tahir and Lungi Ngidi, Bangladeshi Shakib Al Hasan, Pakistani Umar Gul, West Indian Jason Holder. and Afghan Rashid Khan.
