Best All-Rounders in Cricket History

The Top Ten

1 Shakib Al Hasan

He is a tiger born in Bangladesh only to hunt the preys in Cricket

He is the all-rounder of all the time and also the most handsome and sweetest cricketer. He is on the first position of icc all-rounder ranking

One of the best all-rounder in cricket history. Its not too long before, Bangladesh as approved for the test team but, Bangladesh has progressed very well in these day and one of the major contributor is Shakib Al Hasan. In many of matches won by Bangladesh, you will see the contribution of Shakib Al Hasan either with or bowl or with both. His terrific all round performance has enhanced the Bangladesh team and he is in the number 2 spot of top all rounders of all time.

He is gonna be the best allrounder of all time :)very talented and awesome player. Hats off to hi

2 Shahid Afridi

he's awesome. he's the best allrounder and eveytime he makes runs from less ball and he can also do fast and spin fast

DASHING CRICKETER... A TRUE GAME CHANGER

Shahid Afridi is the Best All-Rounder in the world. Because He is only player to achive fastest Hundred in the history of cricket ^^ his strike rate is best ever any cricketer in the history of the cricket. He hits Mosts sixs and He is only one persons who score over 7000- and get 333 wickets in ODI history of cricket

shahid khan afridi is the best bowler should be on top ten

3 Jaques Kallis

Jacques Kallis's records speaks in itself. He has the ability to turn the game in favour of S.A. due to his excellence in all departments of the game.

kallis is the best cricketer ever born.

Jacque kallis is also know as king kallis he is A true allrounder A full bag of run and bag of wicket he had and I think everyone get shock that why he is been on no 3 because his strike rate is low otherwise he is number 1

jacques kalis is the greatest of all time
*only all-roinder with 10000 runs & 250 wickets in tests
*second all- rounder with over 10000 runs & almost 250 ODI wickets after Sanath Jayasuriya
*the 3rd highest test centurion after Sachin Tendulkar & Ricky Ponting( he has 34 centuries)
* he also has in impressive domestic career( his stats tell the story)

4 Imran Khan

One of the best and only one 'imran khan' cricket history legend all rounder only on imran khan

One of the best all rounder in the world good looking fit and handsome imran khan is king and prince in cricket all time

World's most good-looking sportsman mentaining those good looks with all the girls just waiting for you outside the ground just to get a glimpse of you mentaining that stardom with with not letting get anything on your performance it takes hell of hard work and determination. Imran emerged himself as the best all-rounder of his time. He was an excellent bowler and a very good batsman and his leadwrship skills made his worth even more. Just to give you an example, Imran averaged 19.3 in batting over 28 in bowling before becoming the captain but after he was made the captain in batting he qveraged over 55 and in bowling below 18 which is best record for any captain in the world cricket. Beside Imran is the only player in history who got good as the passed while other all-rounder like Ian Bottham & Kapil dev etc. They got dull and their skills lacked as the time passed by. Imran ia probably the only player who had finished his career leaving as a top man in world cricket.

IMRAN KHAN WAS BEST BOWLER OF ALL TIME. MOST OF THE GREAT BATSMEN FACED HIM LIKE SUNIL GAVASKAR,
SIR VIV RICHARD, ALLEN BORDER, DAVID GOVER, MARTIN CROW, VIShaveANATH, GRECK CHAPEL AND THEY ALL RATED HIM number 1, MOREOVER HE BOWLED ON SUBCONTINENTAL PITCHES WHICH NEVER NEVER SUPPORT TO FAST BOWLER, SIR RICHARD HADLEE NEVER BOWLED ON THESE PITCHES, EVEN GREAT LILEE SAY IT IS GRAVEYARD OF FAST BOWLER WHEN HE PLAYED A TEST MATCH AT FAISALABD. IMRAN KHAN WAS A GREAT BATSMAN AND A GREAT CAPTAIN. HENCE HE IS THE BEST CRICKETER OF THE WORLD. MOREOVER HE NEVER PLAYED FOR THE RECORDS.

5 Garfield Sobers

By far the best all rounder ever. No one could touch him for sheer variety and expertise in all the disciplines of cricket. Best batsman - a whole level ahead of everyone. Finest medium pacer and world class spinner. One of the worlds finest fielders. A superman in cricket.

He is the GREATEST of all time ALLROUNDER.
Great Batsman, Bowler and Fielder

In my opinion the best all rounder ever

By far the best all rounder ever. Only one to bowl pace and spin.

6 Kapil Dev

I also feel Kapil was the best. All rounder means batting, bowling, fielding and captaincy. But when we talk about all rounders we only talk about batting and bowling. Kapil excelled in all the department of the game. For example, Kapil was a great bowler, very attacking batsman, outstanding fielder (who can forget the Sir Viv Richards catch in 1983 world cup) and dynamic captain (later on in his career he was not supported by senior players who envied his charismatic personality). If you compare Kapil with other like Imran, Botham, Hadlee you will notice none of them had all. For example, Imran, Botham and Hadlee were not very good fielders. Besides, Botham was not a good captain and Hadlee never became captain. So I give full marks to Kapil Dev.

Could have scored at least 9000 runs (average 40 ) if India had good bowlers allowing him to focus on batting.
Same with ODI's-- could have scored 6000 runs(33 )...

Kapil dev came from a nation which never seen fast bowlers.. He batted, bowled and fielded effortlessly to become one of the most exciting players to watch in the era of Viv Richards - Malcom Marshal- Alan boarder -- etc..
As a bowler he had no support from seniors to advice him - but still he shined.. As a batsman he did lesser than his actual talent..
As a captain he didn't had a luxury of great Players when compared that of Imran khan -- but still won us our first world cup..
Imran was an exciting bowler - but a boring batsman. He always had a good bunch of worldclass players in Zaher abbas- Akram-javed miandad- salim malik- sarfraz nawaz- abdul qadir-wasimbari-inzamam.. Etc.. Winning a world cup with very good players is not a big deal.. So I rate kapil dev better than Imran khan.. But I rate Ian botham slightly higher than - Kapil dev if we keep this captaincy as not counted.. Ian botham is more assured in batting thann any of the four greats at that time- and his ...more

Kapil Dev is the best. He is the best captain in the world as he coolly led India to win the 1983 world cup. Almost all of the matches in the world cup it was rather a one man show. In batting, bowling or in fielding he is the best. Other thing we have to praise is his mode of captaincy. when India went to England all looked to be a west indies dominance. But Kapil Dev overcame these difficulties and was able to lead India Victoriously.

7 Ian Botham Sir Ian Terence Botham is a former England Test cricketer and Test team captain, and current cricket commentator.

Without doubt the best ever...ask any Aussie batsmen of the 80's (especially 1981)

Would be higher if the internet wasnt rammed with indian cricket fans

People here are no real cricket fans.. Botham was the best and will stay in that place forever.. Yuvraj Singh a better all-rounder? You guys gone nuts? And sobers on 7th rank?

When this man came on the pitch the excitement level of the crowd was amazing. He was expected to win the match on his own... And very often he did.

8 Sir Richard Hadlee

most underrated player in history. One of the best bowlers and big hittin batsmen ever!

Hadlee'z 9/52 wz da bst figurez for a bowler
for a long time plus he ws da first man 2 take mre thn 400 test wicketz

His records speak for this great man

Champion fast bowler and way better batsman than the very few bowlers in his league.
All-time world eleven candidate based on the stats.

9 Keith Miller

a great bowling all rounder

He could bat, bowl and charm any shiela.

10 Shane Watson Shane Robert Watson is a former Australian international cricketer and a former captain, who played all formats of the game.

He is the best. He is the best of all time. Nobody could like him. He is the most dangerous batsman in the history of cricket. He is rocking the world.

He has been injured most of his carrer but when he finally gets no injuries and play for more then a match he instantly goes up the icc rankings and dominates teams. He should be first

SHANE WATSON HAS SCORED HIS HIGHEST SCORE - 185 IN THE LAND OF TIGERS

The greatest cricketer of all time. The west indies would be losing by about 250 runs and they thought they were going to lose by far till Gary Sobers came in because he would have just smacked the ball for 6 or 4. He could also bowl fabulous he could do fast and spin both leg and off he could also bowl with his left or right hand. He was a deadly fielder as well he would dive at the ball catch it well he was still in the air he would throw it back when he was still in then air and it would hit the stumps on the side. He should be in front of Kapil Dev. Dev should be at three and Kallis should be second.

The Contenders

11 Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj the best all rounder I have ever seen. The day he doesn't bowls well he is excellent with the bat and when not with the bat he is marvelous in his fielding and bowling. He was the main icon who helped india to get the world cup 2011. He is god gifted. India should certainly look for these kind of players. He must keep it up.

Yovraj singh is best teem icon for indian cricket teem, he has pormance for all india have winning world cup such as under 19 world cup 2007 and 2011 all most he have wining man of the series award their world cup. Without youraj singh we have not winnig word cup.
Thanks

Yuvraj is a best all rounder of indian side. He is try to improve his batting level strategy. He is good role model of cricket history. Likewise yuvi health is very good now.

He is the best all rounder I have seen before,He also won the award of man of the tournament in 2011 world cup & I think India won the 2011 world cup only because of him

12 Chris Cairns

Great New Zealand allrounder, a match winner with both bat and ball.

Great with both bat and ball

If you see icc knockout series final match

13 Ravindra Jadeja

He is now one of best all-rounder in cricket he shows his power on the world cup
He is very dashing performance in fielding
He improved his batting skill

Ravindra Jadeja and Glenn Maxwell are
the best all-rounders in the world

Sir jadeja, the good all rounder. That India had ever seen.
The icc championship 2013 proves that ravindra jadeja is a good all rounder.
What a catches oh my god it ws amazing. 5 wickts in a match, iis it easy. Young handsome batsman who is a good finisher

IN CHAMPIONS TROPHY 2013 Jadeja DID THE IMPOSSIBLE. HE TOOK FIVE WKTS AGAINST WEST INDIES. JADEJA ROCKS

14 Andre Russell

I think that in other 5 or 7 years he would be in the top ten.

He is the best all rounder

Within 2 to 3 years he will be in the top 1 to 5

Yes he will be world's top all rounder

15 Lance Klusener

Zulu is the iceman of cricket he will came to bat with sa in total dismal and get them out of jail.

Lance klusener is a best all rounder. He was declared man of the series in 1999 world cup taking 17 wickets and hit 257 runs. He supported to south africa to reached semifinal.

Batting low down the order he could smash and bowl

He is match winner all the time. I miss you my hero is klusener.

16 Sanath Jayasuriya

Sanath jayasuriya must be number one all rounder wich player reach his record more than 13000 runs, more than 350 wickets, and more than 100 catches also run out, so he his the number one player.

He takes over 300 wickets $ score over 10000 runs, he is the one of most no of sixes hitting world cricket history ever, most no off bowlers are fear to him

We all know he is the best all rounder ever. No one can beat his all round records.

A devastating batsman and plays very aggressive cricket making him one of the most destructive batsman in the world and with his spin blowing also he chips in taking crucial wickets and he is a very good all rounder

17 Chris Gayle

Chris Gayle should be in the top ten
He is a very talented all-rounder

Opening Batsmen never are all-rounders

Awesome, what an all-rounder

Chris Gayle is not an all rounder

18 Andrew Flintoff

Tiger in pakistan cricket

Heis the tricker with bowl and magic with bat

Yar is ko Batao ka cricket KHAIL raha hain

24 Mahendra Singh Dhoni Mahendra Singh Dhoni, commonly known as MS Dhoni, is an Indian international cricketer who captained the Indian national cricket team.

He can bat, keep wickets and bowl too when a spare wicketkeeper is available. Above all he is a great captain. Truly an allrounder in every sense of the word. He could work on his bowling a lot more.

He is a very good batsman. In fact he could be a good all-rounder

I think he is no so good in bowling but a superb batsmen

The wonderful all rounder for India without ball
