Top 10 Batsmen with Highest Average Batting Away (min. 50 inns) in ODIs: A batsman is regarded as a great one when he not only performs on his home soil against opponents but also against opponents on their own grounds. It is very difficult to have a good away record in limited over matches due to less time available for acclimatization. Here are 10 batsmen with best away averages in One Day Internationals (Min 50 innings):
10. Damien Martyn – 45.15:
The mainstay of Australian middle order in the greatest team of modern era, Damien Martyn didn’t get many chances to show his true skills. Thanks to either the great bowling attack or the top class opening combination that Australia possessed in the 2000s. But Martyn did well on the away tours to countries like India, Sri Lanka, South Africa where his ability to play both quick bowlers and spin easily was brought forth.
A World cup winner in 2003, he played an important role in the whole tournament and especially in the final supporting captain Ricky Ponting and taking Australia to a cup winning total of 359 runs.
