Jacques Kallis, arguably the best South African all-rounder, ranks fifth in the list of players with the fastest 10000 Runs in ODI. The five feet eleven inches man was always for the team whenever required. Kallis breached 10,000 runs against Australia in Sydney in 2009 while scoring 60 of 72 balls. The man who was stellar with the bat, ball, and on the field, Jacques Kallis, perhaps has set an example of an ideal all-rounder in modern cricket.

This man was filled with qualities such as aggression, confidence, timing, and leadership- Australia’s legendary skipper, Ricky Ponting. He ranks fourth in the list of batsmen with the fastest 10,000 runs in ODI. The two-time World Cup-winning captain brought his 10000th run in his 266th innings against South Africa in the 2007 World Cup. A high point of Ponting’s style was the pure intent he had right from the first delivery he faced.

Sourav Ganguly, affectionately known as “Dada,” is India’s one of the greatest skippers.

Bring all the quality adjectives from your dictionary, to sum up Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin is not just a name. It is an emotion with having a space of his own in every cricket fans heart. The Master Blaster was the first batsmen ever to have scored 10,000 ODI runs during his brilliant 139 against Australia in Indore, 2001. Tendulkar also holds the record as the highest run-scorer in ODIs with astounding 18426 runs at an average of 44.8.
