Top Five Run Getters in ODI 2014: In the game of cricket, it is the batsmen who attract more attention than the bowlers. They get applauded for each and every four and sixes that they hit which quite contradictory for a bowler otherwise. But, it is harsh to them as well; modern day cricket expects a batsman to score and score off any delivery that is put ahead of them. Like every year even 2014 was an eventful year for the willow holders. Bowler were plundered, thrashed and humbled around the world and the batsmen bundled on tons and tons of runs. So, here we are with the top five batsmen who had a great year and are the highest run getters in 2014.

So far in the year 2014 Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara is the highest run getter followed by compatriot and skipper Angelo Mathews.
