Highest ODI batting averages over 100 consecutive innings

Filed under: cricket,sport — ckrao @ 11:13 am

The 3 centuries by A B de Villiers in the most recent ODI series against India has given him a sizeable lead over the rest in the following list of highest batting averages in 100 consecutive one day international cricket innings (edit in Nov 2018: Kohli has overtaken him). On 92 out of those 100 innings he came in at number 4 or lower (and never opened in that time span), and still he managed to score over 54 runs per innings. All of his ODI hundreds to date have been scored at a strike rate of at least 100. Some very impressive numbers have been posted for other batsmen in the list too.

  1. Can you please update the list? I think Kohli has the second highest average over 100 consecutive innings now.

    • Now updated, thanks for the timely reminder. His best-100 innings ODI average has increased significantly from 55.57 (Mar ’11-Mar ’15). The figures of the other current players are unchanged from before.
