Finishing the innings on a high is key to success in the ODI matches for a batsman. A batsman tries to get runs at a maximum strike rate in the last ten overs to post a challenging total. Similarly, a chasing team also backs itself to get to the target in the last ten overs. Thus, a batsman’s strike rate is always on the higher side if we take into account overs 40 to 50. The batters are always looking to deal in boundaries and go for the big shots to provide the finishing touches to their team.

The Indian batsmen also try to get maximum runs in the last powerplay. From overs 41-50, which is the third powerplay, five fielders are allowed outside the 30-yard circle. We, at Sportzwiki, bring the top five Indian batsmen who have the highest strike rate from over 40 to 50.

The former Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh played some useful knocks for the team. Yuvraj also added the finishing touches with MS Dhoni, in a lot of matches. The left-hander was a clean striker of the ball and backed himself to get the runs in the death overs.

Yuvraj scored 8701 runs in 304 runs at an average of 36.56 and a strike rate of 87.68. The southpaw scored his runs at a fine strike rate of 136.62 from over 40 to 50.
