On Thursday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) revealed the Men’s ODI team of the year 2021. Although due to the T20 World Cup, teams didn’t play too many ODI games last year but even in the limited number of matches, some standout players proved their credentials.

ICC named the maximum of three players from Bangladesh followed by two each from Ireland, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa. Just like the T20I team of the year of 2021, no Indian featured in the ODI team as well.

Pakistan’s Babar Azam was named the captain of the team, while Mushfiqur Rahim of Bangladesh was picked as the specialist wicketkeeper.
