Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Sri Lankans Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera have been included in the ICC ODI team of 2021.

The team recognises 11 outstanding individuals who have impressed one and all – be it with the bat, the ball or their all-round exploits in a calendar year.

Other members of the team are Paul Stirling (Ireland), Janneman Malan (South Africa), Babar Azam (c) and Fakhar Zaman (Pakistan), Rassie van der Dussen (South Africa), Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh), Mushfiqur Rahim (wk) and Mustafizur Rahman (Bangladesh) and Simi Singh (Ireland)

In its citation for Hasaranga, the ICC says

“A vital contributor with both the bat and the ball – Wanindu Hasaranga continued to establish himself as the superstar of the Sri Lankan team in the shorter formats of the game in 2021. He scored 356 runs at an average of 27.38 with three half-centuries in 14 matches. Hasaranga was also a constant menace with the ball, picking up 12 wickets at a miserly economy of 4.56.”

For Chameera, the citation goes as

“Impressing one and all with his pace, Chameera was on fire in the year 2021. Playing 14 matches, he scalped 20 wickets at an average of 29.30 with one five-wicket haul. Managing to maintain his fitness, Chameera reaped the rewards in what turned out to be a fruitful year for him.”
