Quiz! Name The Players With The Best Men's ODI Batting Averages
by Wisden Staff 10 minute play

Can you name every batsman with a batting average of over 40 in men’s ODIs and ace this quiz?

With a cut-off of 2,000 runs in the format, a total of 54 men have cleared that specific mark. Most are true legends of the game, with the list skewing towards the modern, when runs have been easier to come by.

One player manages to feature on this list despite never notching an ODI hundred, though he did make 46 half-centuries. You have 10 minutes. Good luck!
