ODI Team of the Year 2014

CricTracker's ODI Team of the Year 2014

CricTracker’s ODI Team of the Year 2014: Another year of international cricket has ended – a year full of action, drama, sixes, fours, wickets, brilliant catches, good umpiring and equally good captaincy. This year brought the best of many players as well as some players failed to perform up to their true potential. It has always been a tradition to compile the Best XI after a mega event or tournament so here we are with ODI Team of the Year based on players who were the best for their role, whose statistics proof that they deserved to be a part of this year’s Best XI:

  1. Hashim Amla (South Africa)
Fastest to reach 4000 runs in ODIs

Matches: 18, Runs: 892, Highest: 122*, Average: 52.47, 100s: 5, 50s: 2, Strike-Rate: 80.57

Hashim Amla had to wait until July to play his 1st ODI in 2014 but the wait didn’t make him look dull or rusty any little. He scored back to back hundreds against the Sri Lankans who were in such great form and another 48 in the 3rd and final match. Another 122* in the very next match meant that he now had 3 hundreds in his first four ODIs of 2014. He continued to impress everyone in the tri-series involving Zimbabwe and Australia. 119 vs New Zealand and 102 vs Australia helped him to be the fastest batsman to reach 4500 ODI runs and 17 ODI centuries beating Virat Kohli by a long distance.
