India is the only team which dominated the World Cricket throughout the decade, especially in the limited over format. Dhoni and Kohli played a pivotal role in the evolution of Indian cricket in this decade. Cricket Australia announced their ODI and Test teams of this decade and these Indian players got named as the captains for those squads.
Cricket Australia on Tuesday revealed their ODI XI of the decade, which includes three Indians. MS Dhoni had named captain of the side, while Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma got included as number three batsman and opener, respectively. Fast bowler Mitchell Starc is the only Australian in the side. The side also includes Afghanistan all-rounder Rashid Khan.
As the decade draws to a close, Cricket Australia has released a team of the decade and has named Virat Kohli as the captain of the side. Alastair Cook and David Warner are the openers. Indian captain Virat Kohli walks out at number 5 and well, this is a solid middle order. Williamson, Smith, and Kohli are perhaps the three biggest names of the decade and might well continue to dominate world cricket even in the next decade.
