Top 10 all-rounders in ODI cricket

f

An all-rounder today is an invincible embodiment of a successful ODI team. Over time, we have been privileged to have the likes of Sir Garfield Sobers, Kapil Dev, Imran Khan and Wally Hammond amongst many others who dominated the first era of ODI cricket with the bat and the ball alike. They were amongst the very best to have ever played on a cricket field.

Then came the era of Chris Cairns, Shaun Pollock, Lance Klusner, Sanath Jayasuriya, Andrew Flintoff and Abdul Razzaq. Jonty Rhodes, too can be said to have made it to the list by virtue of his sheer elegance with the bat and his breath-taking mastery in the field.

Present day ODI cricket has somewhat redefined the job of an all-rounder, giving rise to terms such as “bowling all-rounders” and “batting all-rounders”.

Here’s presenting the list of the Top 10 all-rounders in present era of ODI Cricket:

10) Daniel Vettori:

The former Kiwi captain was the highest ranked bowler in ODIs for a considerable period of time and not too long ago (i.e. before his retirement) Add to that, 2000 runs at an average of 17.24 which is quite acceptable for a bowling all-rounder coming in to bat at number 6 or 7. He also had to captain the side for most part of the post-Fleming era till date, which all combined, makes him the perfect number 10 for me.
