There have been a number of players who start playing brilliantly after reaching a certain age. Also, some players get playing better and better with their age. In this article, we are to lay our focus on the players who became much more consistent in their batting after reaching a certain age in ODIs.

Here is the list of the players with the most number of half centuries in ODIs after reaching the age of 38 –

1. Misbah-ul-Haq – 23 half-centuries 

The 40-year old Pakistani captain tops the list. He has been one of the most consistent batsmen for Pakistan in ODIs for the past couple of years. He has come up with some brilliant performances whenever it is required for the team. Sadly, he is yet to score an international century but he has got a good number of half centuries under his belt. He has rescued Pakistan from collapses for a number of times.

2.  Geoffrey Boycott – 10 half-centuries
