Some might say ODI cricket is in a decline stage, but the ODI World Cup is still considered the biggest price in the sport. So, it is fair to say there is a firm decline in the interest in cricket folklore in bilateral ODI matches, but not the format.

Whether the tri-formats of cricket can co-exist for long is a topic for another time. Now it’s time to build up to the biggie, the 13th edition of the ODI World Cup, which is scheduled in India for October 2023.

Before that, it is also important to look at the role of a batter in the ODI format. Unlike Test matches, where the bowlers are destined to pick up 20 wickets for a team to win, the ODIs are relatively more inclined towards the batter.

With 50 overs in contention, batters in ODI are expected to bring on their A-game to keep the team in the driver’s seat.

Here is a list of batters who have been knocking on the scoreboard consistently in 2023 – the top ten run-scorers for the year 2023 in ODI cricket.
