5 Indian batters who have 100+ strike rate in ODI cricket
ODI cricket is one of the most-followed formats of the sports. In this form of the game, there are two teams in a match, and each side gets a maximum of 50 overs to bat. The team with the most number of runs after the match emerges as the winner. Generally, a score between 250 and 300 is considered decent while batting first in ODI cricket.
However, of late, the trend has changed. Now teams look to score around 350 runs in the first innings because the teams have chased 300+ scores comfortably. Hence, it is necessary for batters to have a strike rate of around 90 instead of 75-80 in ODIs now.
