Best ODI team of the decade of Ian Bishop. Caribbean legend Ian Bishop chose the best one-day team of the decade. Three Indians got a place in his team. The captain of the team is also an Indian.

No cricketer from Pakistan, Sri Lanka or West Indies.

Ross Taylor at five. The Kiwi middle order batsman has scored 8574 runs at an average of 48.44. There are 21 centuries. He has the ability to pull the team under pressure. Huge experience will also put pressure on the opponent bowlers.
Bishop’s all-rounder is Shakib Al Hasan. This left-handed Bangladeshi is an asset for the team. Besides scoring 6323 runs at bat, he also took 260 wickets. He has given confidence to the batting of Bangladesh by coming down to number three in the last World Cup. There was also a perfect bowling of ten overs.
The captain of the team is Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He is the cricketer of the team including wicketkeeper and batsman. As well as being a World Cup-winning captain, he is also one of the best finishers of all time in the world.

Lasith Malinga is another fast bowler. Which must be used intelligently in the slog over. He has 338 wickets in this format.
