Top 10 Captains with the Highest Average in ODI Cricket

7. Michael Clarke (Australia) – 45.75

Smith’s predecessor, Clarke began his captaincy career after the World Cup of 2011, succeeding Ponting. His batting skills included various niches to play the spinner as well as the pacers in a stylish way. While the way he performed he appeared as a born leader. Well, he took Australia’s lead in 72 games and scored 2,745 runs with an average of 45.75 pocketing 5 centuries.

Though his average as the Australian skipper remained slightly higher than his standard average, his most records were compiled as a non-captain. In his entire career, he had been suffering from backaches, that troubled him at every corner, but his stringent efforts earned Australia another World Cup title in 2015.
