    Gilchrist - a very soreloser he is gone anyways so no point him being on the list.
    Gayle - the man can hit but he is affraid of fast bowlers
    Imran Nazir - this kid can rock but too bad he can't play for pakistan no more due to ICL
    Yuvraj Singh - Singh is king but only when it comes to some teams
    Dhoni - this guy is consistent, lucky and commands respect from all his team mates. three tests, three
    Kevin Pieterson - he keeps crying, over rated

  5. According to the stats (looking at batting average)

    All time: Sir Don Bradman

    Current: well it is not so clear.. based on pure numbers Michael Hussey with an average of 78.14. Having said that he has not has many games yet so that could go down.

    In reality:

    Suchin Tendulka, Ricky Ponting, or Rahul Dravid

    All high 50s in terms of batting avg and played 200 or more innings (enough to get a fairly accurate average).

    Check out sources below (wikipedia), for actual numbers

  12. If You treat hitter as a player who can hit big sixes the the answers is " Yuvraj Singh, Shahid Afridi , Gilchrist, H.Gibbs, R.Ponting, K.P...."

    if you mean a good player who strokes the ball well then answer is " B.C.Lara , S.R.Tendulkar , I.Ul Haq, R.Ponting, A.Flower, A.De Silva,R.Dravid,....."


    if you think of hitting the spinners then who can forget the Prince of Kolkatta-S.Ganguly..... and the Little Master S.R.Tendulkar....

  13. Among former players,Dean Jones is one

    Jayasuriya,Kallis   are also hard hitters

    Sometimes, Kallis  hits sixes with the help of his muscle power

  14. the best hitter of the cricket ball in the world is yuvraj singh because he had hit 6 sixes and gibbs also hit 6 sixes,but gibbs hit 6 sixes in spinner over.but yuvraj hitted in broad,great bowler over.
