The ODI fixture of 2023 is a bit hectic compared to other years on account of cricket’s biggest festival, the 13th edition of the ODI Cricket World Cup which will be held in India in October-November. Hence every team is playing more One Day Internationals than T20Is to keep themselves prepared and accustomed to the format to do well in the upcoming precious ODI World Cup. So far, this year has seen many batsmen across countries perform deftly for their teams. Let’s look at the batters with the most ODI runs in 2023.
The reliable middle-order batsman of the UAE, Asif Khan gets the top spot on the most ODI runs in the 2023 tally. Asif has been in pristine touch in the ongoing season, amassing 700 runs in 17 ODIs at a healthy average of 46.66. The Pakistan-born player has smashed 2 centuries and 4 fifties to support his great run.
India’s rising star Shubman Gill has been a run bank in the ODIs and cemented 2nd position on the chart of the most ODI runs in 2023. The 23 years old prodigy from Punjab has represented his country in 9 matches and scored 624 runs at a staggering average of 78.00 and an impressive strike rate of 117.51. His best innings of 208 in 149 balls sprang out against New Zealand in Hyderabad in the 1st ODI of the New Zealand tour of India.
One of the best opening batsmen among the associate teams, Muhammad Waseem finds himself in 3rd place on the list of most ODI runs in 2023. Waseem’s role has been significant to win games for the UAE team. Averaging a decent 35.64, the 29-year-old has accumulated 606 runs in 17 matches, including 1 century and 4 fifties.
One of the promising youngsters in the cricket fraternity, the UAE opener Vrittya Anand stands 4th on the most runs in ODI 2023 with 489 runs in 17 matches. Anand has charged the bowlers and piled up runs whenever he stepped on the field, averaging 30.56. His mere strike rate of 69.16 has been a matter of concern in the current ODI cricket as it demands to slog the bowlers often.
The man who makes everyone stop and stare at him during his batting, Virat Kohli has aggregated 427 runs in 9 games, the 8th most ODI runs in 2023. Finally, Virat is back after 2 years of dismal performances. Possessing an excellent average of 53.87, the stalwart has hit 2 centuries and a fifty. When Virat Kohli is on the crease, fans become blithesome because Kohli can win any game even from a perilous position.
