There has been lot of cricket in 2017, the Cricingif team selects their best ODI batsman.
This was just another terrific year for the Indian skipper as he racked up 1460 runs at a staggering average of 77 with six centuries and seven fifties. This is the fifth instance that he has scored more than 1,000 ODI runs in a year.
He started off the year with a match winning hundred against England, and ended the year with yet another match winning hundred against the Kiwis. The highest run-scorer of the year, it’s none other than the King himself *drum rolls* Virat Kohli.
Would be weird to give it to anyone else. There is only one batsman who was the best batsman of the year and was miles ahead of everyone else. It was Virat Kohli, 50+ in every 2nd innings. It had been that kind of year for Kohli.
Rohit Sharma: M 21 - Runs 1293 – HS 208* – Avg 71.83 – 100s 6
Yes, Virat Kohli has the best numbers in ODIs but if there is one contender that comes closer to beating his form is Rohit Sharma. While Sharma has played five less games then Kohli, they have scored same number of tons, with Sharma scoring some brownie points for his third double ton.
