If there was a poll on who's currently the best ODI player in the world, chances are, Virat Kohli would win hands down. But clearly the ICC doesn't think so.
Kohli, the number one ODI batsman in the world, has been omitted from this year's list of the ICC ODI Team of the Year. That's not all, Kohli, who is also the current ODI player of the year is set to lose that crown too. This year's nominees for ICC's ODI player of the year are Shikhar Dhawan, Ravindra Jadeja, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Saeed Ajmal, Misbah-ul-Haq and Kumar Sangakkara. (Why Kohli lost out to Amla?)
There is no doubt that the Delhi batsman has had a phenomenal year with the bat. The last 12 months have seen him score 1237 runs in 31 ODIs with an impressive average of 56.22, which also include 4 tons.
