The ICC Ranking System's Top 10 Batsmen in ODI Cricket History

Since the introduction of the coloured clothing game, many players have dazzled and entertained. Some have been forgotten about and some have permanently entrenched themselves in our brains as legends.

We compiled the list from the "career best rating" for ODI batsmen, as determined by the ICC's ranking system.

That system judges players by their all-time peak score—the highest ranking achieved at the height of their best form. We can debate whether it has flaws, and whether it has meant that some greats of the game have been unfairly left out. However, what it does do is give us an unbiased top 10, as determined by a complex algorithm in the ICC headquarters in Dubai.

If you want to find out more about the methodology, the ICC's rankings website has an FAQ page.

There are a few notable omissions, but someone has to miss out.
