The ODIs of the year are over, and we review team and individual performances here:
First, the ICC rankings at the end of the year:
It can be seen that the 10 teams participating in the 2019 World Cup are the top 10 here.
This table includes matches in the past 2-3 years. Nepal has ODI status but has not played enough matches to get a ranking.
Here we look at W/L ratios. This and all subsequent tables refer to performances in the calendar year 2018.
Teams ranked by W/L ratio
Guess who finished last 🙂
And guess who played the most matches.
Of course, this table does not mean much as it does not take into account the opponent’s strength, which the ICC rankings are supposed to.
We now move to individual performances, starting with
500 or more runs:
Also note that Kohli (6) and RG Sharma (5) have the most centuries, while Kohli (9) also has the most fifties followed by RG Sharma, Root and Fakhar Zaman with 8.
Innings scores of 125 or more:
Batting averages (Minimum 20 innings, all instances):
You might expect Kohli, Sharma and a few others to be here but they did not play enough innings. However, they appear below:
Highest strike rates (Minimum 80.00 for a minimum of 500 balls faced):
Note that England has the two top spots, while India also has a few with strike rates above 100.
To be continued.
