Top 10 Captains with the Highest Average in ODI Cricket

Top 10 Captains with the Highest Average in ODI Cricket

4. Kane Williamson (New Zealand) – 47.52

Williamson was just 17 when he took over the responsibility to captain the Under-19 cricket side in the U19 Cricket World Cup 2008 in Malaysia. This born leader has a brilliant batting style that suitably fits as the solo performer. Before he took over the duty to captain the New Zealand national side, he was doing a fantastic job with the bat averaging 46.50. But after McCullum left the game, Williamson was called for the duty.

As a captain, Williamson added 2,946 runs to his resume averaged at 47.52 runs per inning with 5 centuries. The plethora of the Cricket World Cup 2019 did not bother his stream of wise captaincy. Instead, he shines in every game and led his side to success in every other situation. Even after the commencement of the mega tournament, Williamson led his side pretty firmly, winning every game and putting New Zealand at the top position. And in every match, he played his part with the bat as well as his wisdom to put New Zealand in the leading role, such in the last fighting game with South Africa that was much like a 50/50 situation for both sides, Williamson’s sixer in the last over brought everything in their favor.
