Top 10 Best ODI Batsmen in 2016


4. Quinton de Kock (South Africa)

Quinton de KockAfter AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock seems to be the most destructive player to have emerged from South Africa, in recent years. His magnificent numbers in ODIs put him in elite company. The box-office African batsman is the fastest (55 innings) as well as the youngest (23 years and 54 days) to 10 centuries in ODI history. Notably, De Kock has centuries in Asian countries like India, Sri Lanka and UAE, that underlines his ability to play at different sort of wickets. This year was yet another stupendous year for the Proteas keeper as he smashed 857 runs in 17 ODIs at 57.13 with a strike-rate of 108.61. He recorded some big scores like 138, as well as his career-best 178, this year. But he had a below par time in Caribbean Tri-nation series, the only away ODI assignment for Proteas in 2016. Hence, he is ranked 4th in our list.
