The ODI Batsmen’s Ranking 2012 is out! Well January is back, and so is the Sixth edition of Vineet’s Cricket Rankings (check out the ODI Batsmen Rankings 2011 here)! Sehwag is way behind this year and got dropped and seems unlikely to play soon with new batsmen cementing their places. Hashim Amla batted solidly and claimed the top spot with 678 runs from just 10 matches with a high average of 84.75 and a strike rate of 90.76. He smashed 2 centuries and 4 half-centuries on the way to achieving this. But even after this he could just pip AB de Villiers to the post by a micron. De Villier smashed 2 centuries and 3 half-centuries on the way compiling 645 runs in 13 matches at an astounding average of 107.5 and a strike rate of 108.58!! Wow some South African Warriors that! Virat Kohli continued last year’s form and was No 3 position (making him the strongest batsman in the last 2 years) with 1026 runs in 17 matches and an average of 68.4 and a strike rate of 93.78. He struck 5 centuries and 3 half-centuries on the way!
Nasir Jamshed (Pakistan) with some wonderful batting compiled 462 runs in just 8 matches to make the list at No 4. He averaged 66 at a strikerate of 86.19 and struck 2 centuries and 2 half-centuries. He was followed by Walting (New Zealand) who scored 338 runs in 7 matches with an average of 84.5 and a strike rate of 83.04. He scored 4 half centuries on the way.
But then who are the teams of 2012? Well India is way ahead of everyone with 5 batsmen in top 30! This is much lower than it’s 2011 performance of 7 batsmen in Top 30. England New Zealand Australia Sri Lanka and West Indies. So the competition is very hot right now. England and Australia with with their bowling performance keep ahead of the others.

1. V Sehwag (India) 35
2. SR Watson (Aus) 53
3. AB de Villiers (SA) 2
4. RN ten Doeschate (Neth) DNQ
5. PR Stirling (Ire) DNQ
