COVID-19 continued to have an impact on cricket in 2021, with the ODI format suffering the most damage. Top cricketing nations such as India, Australia, England, and New Zealand haven’t played much more than 50-over cricket this year, while the other two forms of tests and the T20I have dominated the ICC event. In the first half of the year, the ICC World Test Championship drew the most interest, while the remainder of the year was dominated by the T20 World Cup. In cricket, however, there are tense one-day international matches between Pakistan and South Africa, India and Sri Lanka, West Indies and Sri Lanka, and Pakistan and England.

Mitchell Starc is perhaps Australia’s best white-ball bowler in the last decade. In major events, Stark has led Australia.

Mustafizur Rahman: Bangladeshi pacemaker Mustafizur Rahman continues to wow with his white-ball bowling abilities. All of the ODI series wickets he took this year were from his left arm. In ten games, Mustafizur took 18 wickets at an average of 21.55.

Shakib Al Hasan: The left-handed Shakib Al Hasan is undoubtedly Bangladesh’s top player and one of the best all-rounders of his generation. Shakib has regularly done well for his side year after year. In nine One-Day Internationals, the 34-year-old hit 277 runs and remained an important component of Bangladesh’s batting order.

Suryakumar Yadav: The glitzy batter will make his Indian debut this year. In three games this year, the 31-year-old took advantage of the opportunity to finish and hit 124 runs, all against Sri Lanka.

Paul Sterling: The Irish veteran was the top Langetter in this year’s ODI, and he was in the best shape of his life in 2021. In 14 games, he also scored 705 runs, including a century. Sterling was at its peak earlier this year, breaking through the full 3rd century of 2021 in January, with victories over Afghanistan.

Babar Azam (C): The Pakistani captain enjoyed a great run with the bat, defeating Virat Kori to reach the top of the ICC One-Day International rankings in 2021. This season, Babar scored 405 points in six games. In England and South Africa, he was in great shape with the bat.

Janneman Malan: Many people didn’t know much about Janneman Malan before the beginning of this year, but now it’s important for everyone to see him when South Africa plays. After the retirement of some batting stalwarts, Protea has gone through a phase of regeneration.

Harris Rauff: At the tender age of 28, he wowed many with his ability to keep up with the frantic pace of the year. Rauff performed admirably for the White Ball Cricket team despite being Pakistan’s third-choice pacemaker. Rauff took 13 wickets at an average of 24.46 in six One-Day Internationals this year. Pakistani cricket is on the verge of a golden period. Babar Azam, Pakistan’s captain, requires a pacemaker-like Rauff, who is an important part of a sports initiative involving ICC events in the coming years.

Dushmantha Chameera: With some outstanding performances this year, the right-handed pacemaker has resurrected his ODI career. In 2021, he took 20 wickets in 14 games and is the ODI’s leading wicket-taker. A clumsy pacemaker aided in boosting his pace and reviving his international cricket career. This year, he bowled a five-wicket maiden in Bangladesh, amassing a score of 16-5.

Mushfiqur Rahim: Bangladesh cricket has progressed dramatically in recent years, and Mushfiqur Rahim has played a key role in that evolution. The wicket-keeper batsman scored some crucial runs for his team, which he did again in 2021. The 34-year-old had an incredible batting average of 58.14 407 runs. Although Rahim did not play ODI cricket in the second half of the year, the first half was a big success.

Rassie Van der Dussen: In the previous two years, Protea batters have developed into South Africa’s mid-sized and most reliable batters. In 2021, the 31-year-old continued to be a force, batting 57.00 and scoring 342 runs in eight games. South Africa has struggled in the middle order since the retirement of AB de Villiers, with Van der Dussen as the team’s mentor.
