Modern-day ODI XI
ODI cricket is transforming and players are evolving. Batsmen have found new ways to score runs and the bowlers have also added new weapons to their arsenal.
Teams have their own strengths and weaknesses. Some rely on spin while pace is the go-to option for others. Every team plays a unique brand of cricket and has its own mantra for success.
But one thing that is common with most of them is the presence of genuine match winners. Here, we look at an eleven that consists of these match winners from all around the world who, on their day, can win games on their own:
#1 Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma will open the batting. He is one of the best stroke makers in world cricket at the moment. He has got the wonderful gift of timing and plays some outrageous shots with tremendous ease.
He takes some time at the start of the innings but once he gets the feel of the surface, he unleashes. His talent was evident ever since he made his debut for India but there were question marks over his temperament during the initial stages of his career. However, he has transformed into a reliable and prolific run-scorer for India.
