I love to watch this gentleman game so much that at times I forget to take my meal. Even the game which was consider to be lazy one has evolved into fast, short and sweet. The year 2013 clearly saw one of dominant power of Indian team and which would typically will show up in below standing.
Bailey cement his place at 5th position the player who was underrated mostly showcased his talent in Australia tour of India. Bailey was constantly performing on all the matches and leading from front with huge responsibility has captain. The only dominant batsman who maintains strike rate over 100 for the calendar year 2013 in ODI.
The player who was always blamed for performing only in IPL matches has broke the critics finally. Rohit Sharma takes up the 4th position mainly for the consistency and scoring 200 against mighty Australians. The player confidence is growing hugely after the responsibility of leading Mumbai Indians and ultimately getting crowned has champion.
The player who known for simple, steady and powerful Misbah-ul-Haq top the 3rd position. One of the player who always kept alive the match till the end with special ability to play tail enders. I cant just imagine Pakistan team without Misbah such an impact player. He has also scored more than 1100 run in 2013 calender year for ODI.
The 2nd spot claimed to be Sangakkara for his whooping Batting Average of 93 and scoring more than 1000 runs. It’s such remarkable average for player who mostly start batting in top order. Arguably best average owned in 2013 by playing 18 ODI matches.
Virat Kohli easily takes 1st spot who been having dream of year. The player who scored most runs more than 1200 in 2013 and healthy average of 60. Adding to this, Virat also got strike rate of 93 and coming out as the dominated player of the year 2013. The player who been already in talks that only one can even reach near number of ODI hundred scored by Sachin Tendulkar.
I would love to add players like S Dhawan, IJL Trott and few more but they were just able to make it due various factors that been looked into. Some of other player whom I personally expected to do well were Suresh Raina didn’t had great year rather than just good year maybe.
