Top Ten Greatest All Rounders of One Day International Cricket

This list was originally made for top ten ODI all rounders of all times. I made this list by giving equal weight to different variable of batting and bowling performance. Total 22 players were selected for this study.

Variable for batting are total runs in ODI, batting average, strike rate, highest score in ODI, no of fifties in ODI, no of centuries in ODI.

The bowling variables are total wickets in ODI, bowling average, Economy rate per over, best performance in ODI, Five wickets in ODI.

Every category had 22 ranks. Every player got his rank according to his performance. Top rank. Player got 22 points and last player got one point. top players in bowling and batting categories got 22 point. In this total bowling and batting were 44. These factors were taken to give equal benefits to past and present players. In past economy rate is low and now strike rate is better. Average can compensate total runs benefits and highest score can neutralize fifties and hundred. Best bowling can neutralize total wickets performance.

This is reason why a player of NetherLand succeeded to become the member of top ten list by playing only 33 matches.
The Top Ten
1 Shahid Afridi (Pakistan)

Shahid afridi is the best allrounder odi & t20 cricket has seen. He is the one who responsible the change & the big hitting of odi cricket. Today cricket is favourite game all over the world then afridi is one of the reason behind it. Cricket wouldn't be the same if afridi wasn't there.

Boom Boom Shahid afridi is on third position of top ten all rounders of ODI for all times. Surprisingly Afridi got 20 point from bowling and 13 point from batting. Afridi got 33 points out of 44 points.

One of the greatest entertainer and crowd puller off all time cricket can't find any other ball tearing player like Lala.

2 Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh)

I think Shakib's situation is a bit like Messy's: to secure an ulitmate place as one of the greats in history, he needs a world cup championship. Otherwise however long he sports his position as rank one, he will not be able to attain that position in the minds of sports fans beyond Bangladesh.

Shakib is one major trophy (world cup) way to become not only the greatest allrounder of all time but one of the greatest cricketer of all time.

No doubt Shakib Al Hasan is no. 1 but he really needs a major trophy to be the greatest of all time.
Right now he is one of the greatest of all time.

3 Yuvraj Singh (India)

Yuvraj is the man who played a key role in winning all the major tournaments from 2000 to 2011..

I don't know why many people doesn't consider his contributions..

4 Jayasuriya (Sri Lanka)

No wonder other all rounders has undebatable talent but jayasooriya is the best among them where he is the only cricketer who has achieves 10000 runs and crossed the 300 level of wicket taking! There is none other than him and apart from that he has contributed for 150 plus dissmisals! when he was 40 years old he was the fastest runner between wickets..! Is there anyone who is capable in overtaking him? No way!

Why is he below Hardik Pandya? What an absolute joke. His batting was pure class + aggressive and he was a handy bowler

8 Kapil Dev (India)

No other Kapil Dev could be produced by India though so many great batsman after Sunil Gavaskar helped to shine indian cricket. He is probably the most exciting cricketer in indian cricket history till now. India badly need another Kapil Dev.

He is the Underrated Allrounder who had finished many matches. Made high impact with the ball though. Please check his aggregates and compare him to others.

One of the best all rounder from South Africa his nocks in 1999 world cup are memorable he deserves rank under five.

Destructivd batsman and fast medium bowler. Deadly combination
