There’s been a lot of talk around ODI cricket. There is no World Cup or any big tournament in near future till 2023. With the Test Championship that’s all set to resume, there is a tendency of not giving too much importance to the 50-over format.
However, there’s been some quality ODI cricket that’s been played in the recent past. Australia and England played out thrilling series. Also, Australia and India are taking on each other. There are also many ODI series that are planned in the coming days.
Moreover, captains have their task cut out between balancing the formats and getting players ready. In fact, captaincy is a challenge at the moment. Last year was the World Cup year and it brought out the best of everyone. Thus, let’s rate all the current ODI captains of the top nine teams.
Rating ODI captains of the teams:
9. Tamim Iqbal – 6.5/10
There’s absolutely no doubt that Mashrafe Mortaza has been one of the reasons for Bangladesh’s rise in white-ball cricket. Bangladesh have come a long way in ODI cricket and they’ve really improved leaps and bounds. All of that has come under Mortaza’s leadership. Since his departure, Tamim Iqbal has taken over the ODI captaincy.
Tamim led Bangladesh in the lone ODI series thus far, which was against Sri Lanka in 2019. Bangladesh couldn’t match Sri Lanka in that particular series and went on to lose badly by 0-3. With more ODIs lined up for the Tigers in near future, we can expect Tamim to step up and win some crucial games for his side.
