    We as a cricket fan always curious to see players total runs and batting average when he takes guard in middle of the pitch. Cricket fans always impresses with Batmen’s batting average. We loved to see batting average of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, AB de Villiers, David Warner and many other players when they came out to bat in any One Day International match.

    In any form of cricket batting average measures as total number of scores divided by number of times batsmen out. These are the primary measures to rate a batsmen. Batting average is considered as a good performance metric for a player which determines his skill as a batsman and how consistent he is. Batting average defines the average score a batsman is scoring per ODI match.

    If you notice it closely than you will find that batting average is always lower than the test average because of limited over’s cricket and batsmen has to play fast to maintain strike rate as well.

    Here I compiled the top 20 batsmen with highest batting average in ODI cricket. If you analyze below list than you will find that some batsmen even has only 1000 runs and their batting average is much higher than other batsmen.
