The independent voice of cricket


Team selector: ODI team of the 1990s

As part of Wisden’s 1990s in Review series, we want to know what your ODI team of the 1990s, a combined XI of the decade’s best performers in men’s international 50-over cricket, would look like.

The decade was a fascinating one for ODI cricket, with new strategies, new teams, and new players all emerging. The three World Cups were won by three different teams, with Pakistan’s cornered tigers taking the first, Arjuna Ranatunga inspiring Sri Lanka to victory in the second, before Australia began their stranglehold on the competition in 1999. Even then, they had to overcome South Africa in one of the great World Cup games in the semi-final.

Below, you can drag, drop, fiddle and ponder your way to what you think the ODI team of the 1990s should look like. You’ll then get a graphic generated for you of the XI you’ve selected, allowing you to share your team with the world. If there’s anyone you’d like to be able to pick who isn’t listed, be sure to let us know!
