MS Dhoni To Lead ODI XI Of The Decade Selected By Robin Uthappa
As a decade came to an end, it is the time to pick the best from the decade. Many cricket experts picked their best team of the decade. Here, we will discuss the ODI Xi picked by the Indian cricketer Robin Uthappa who has not featured in the Indian team after 2015.
Robin Uthappa picks five Indians, one England, one West Indies, one Australian, one New Zealand, one South African and one Sri Lankan player. He picks MS Dhoni to lead the team.
Uthappa selects Rohit Sharma and Chris Gayle for the opening partnership. It is a surprising fact that he has kept both aggressive players as the openers. Rohit Sharma was the highest scorer of the in ODI this year. While Chris Gayle last played an ODI match in August against India. The present Indian captain Virat Kohli is selected to bat at No.3.
The Australian batsman Steve Smith and South African player AB de Villers, who retired from international cricket in 2018, have been selected at No.4 and No.5 batting positions in this ODI XI. It has been an outstanding decade for Smith who started as a leg-spinner and then went to finish it as one of the best batters in world cricket. Following them, Yuvraj Singh, who shocked by his retirement during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, has been given the duty to bat at No.6.
Uthappa handed over the captaincy to MS Dhoni of his ODI XI of the decade. In this decade, MS Dhoni-led India won the nation’s second Cricket World Cup trophy in 2011. Ben Stokes is only the all-rounder in this team.
India’s pacer Zaheer Khan and Sri Lanka’s pacer Lasith Malinga are strengthening the fast bowling department. Daniel Vettori, who has retired from international cricketer, is the only spinner in the team.
