The ODI Team of 2023 has been unveiled by the International Cricket Council, and as many as six Indian players, including Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, have made the squad.
Two Australians, two South Africans, and one New Zealander make up the eleven, which is mostly made up of Indians.
In addition to Rohit and Kohli, other prominent Indian players who have been included include Shubman Gill, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mohammed Siraj.
Rohit Sharma (captain), Travis Head, Shubman Gill, Heinrich Klaasen, Marco Jansen, Adam Zampa, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mohammed Shami make up the ICC ODI Team of 2023.
As the runner-up in the showcase run-getters ranking, Rohit was crucial to India’s undefeated march into the 2023 ODI World Cup final. His colleague, Virat Kohli, won player-of-the-tournament for his incredible performance.
Gill had a fantastic 2023 in the One-Day Internationals (ODIs) until contracting dengue a few days before the India World Cup. At the conclusion of the calendar year, he was the top run scorer.
Australia’s winning effort was led by Travis Head, who made history against India in the final by scoring a century.
Daryl Mitchell, an all-around player, amassed 1204 runs in 2023, five hundred of which came against India in the World Cup.
Heinrich Klaasen of South Africa elevated his big-hitting game to a new level by smashing a breathtaking 174 against Australia in an ODI before to the World Cup. He subsequently made 109 runs in Mumbai against England to lay the stage for South Africa’s decisive victory.
All-rounder Marco Jansen, who was very reliable with the ball for South Africa and also shown his batting ability when given the chance, has joined Klaasen.
Adam Zampa, an Australian who finished second in the World Cup last year in terms of wicket-taking, is included as a legspinner.
Kuldeep Yadav, a left-arm spinner who claimed 49 wickets in ODIs last year, will be Zampa’s partner.
The speed assault is finished by Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj.
Shami had a memorable World Cup, finishing as India’s top wicket-taker after grabbing 24 for his team in only 7 games. Conversely, Siraj claimed 43 wickets by the end of 2023, including a stunning 6/21 against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final.
