Records and numbers are more often the first things a cricket fan or analyst looks at to figure out how valuable a player is to their team. If you play a game that is more professional, the stats become more important. In baseball, the most important number for a batsman has to be how many runs he has made. Giving it a good fight would be the number that shows his average. One way to show how well a batsman is at their job is to look at their "average." One of the best things for batsmen to do is reach the 7000-run mark. A list of the top ten players who scored the fastest 7000 runs in an ODI.
The South African Opener had shocked everyone for a long time with how well he kept up. He is the fastest player in ODI to reach 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, and 7000 runs.
He is also the fastest player to reach 10 ODI centuries in the fastest time. In the end, Amla had 8,113 runs with an average of 49.47, and he retired with that number.
For the fastest ODI runs, he is at the top. In 150 innings, he reached the goal.
Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen in the world right now, and he's a lot of fun to watch.
This means Virat Kohli isn't just the batsman with the second-most ODI centuries. He also has the record for the fastest way to 8000, 9000, 10000, 11000, and 12,000 ODI runs.
He is the second person to reach 7000 ODI runs in the fastest time. The feat was achieved by Virat in just 161 games.
AB de Villiers is one of the most unconventional greats to play the game. He was important to any team he was on, from the South African team to his own IPL team.
It looks like AB de Villiers has a lot of records to his name, like the fastest ODI 50, the fastest ODI hundred, and the fastest 150 in an ODI game.
He is third on the list for the fastest ODI runs. This is how quickly he reached the goal: in 166 innings.
Saurav Ganguly is one of the best Indian captains and batsmen in the world. He made 11,221 runs in 308 games with an average of 40.95. He made that many runs in 308 games.
He is the fourth person to reach 7000 runs in one-day internationals the fastest. When he reached the record, it took him 174 innings to do so.
Rohit Sharma is the third Indian on this list already. He is one of the best limited-overs batsmen in the world and one of the best openers in the world, as well.
A lot of people talk about the three double tonnes that he broke. It doesn't stop there. He has a lot of other records, too, like a great ODI average of 48.96.
It took Rohit Sharma only 181 innings to get to 7000 ODI runs, which makes him fifth on the list of the fastest to that number.
Brian Lara(West Indies)
When Brian Lara played cricket, he was one of the best players who could win games for his team. When he played, everyone was impressed by his skill and desire to score big runs.
Brain Lara's greatness can be seen by the fact that he was good at both types of games. He scored more than 10,000 runs in both one-day games and Tests.
It says he is the sixth-fastest player to 7000 ODI runs. To reach the goal it took 183 innings for him to do.
Desmond Haynes (West Indies)
This is how it works: In cricket, Desmond Haynes was part of one of the best opening pairs ever. Gordon Greenidge, his partner, is a very energetic person, and he has a very calm way of doing things.
In the end, Desmond Haynes had a lot of records for his name. He made 8,648 runs and 17 centuries, with an average of 41.38 and a score of 8,648 runs and 17 centuries. For his time, these were great ODI stats.
On this list, this is the seventh-fastest time to reach 7000 ODI runs. He did it in 187 innings and is number seven on the list.
