Top 10 Best ODI Batsmen in 2016


7. Joe Root (England)

Joe RootJoe “Consistent” Root had another excellent year in ODIs as he managed 796 runs in 14 ODIs at an average of 61 with 2 centuries and 6 half-centuries to his credit. Root ended the year with second most runs in the calendar year across formats. The Yorkshire-born lad had a superb series in South Africa where he went on to score 351 runs in 5 games and had centuries at Centurion and Johannesburg. In home summer, there was a point of time when the jubilant right-hander hammered five consecutive half-centuries. But much like Tests here as well, his conversion rate was deplorable. For a batsman as good as Root, poor conversion rate is seemingly the only chink in his armory.
