2 Shahid Afridi Shahid Afridi

Afridi very good smashing batsmen in the world all time perfect all rounder in cricket 'and very handsome good looking player

People call him boom boom for a reson and man he can hit a ball miles I know Indian and Pakistan are not the best of friends butt man I will love to see him play in the IPL.

Shahid afridi is a good player he complete his 300 sixes he has hit fastest century in 1996 on debut vs Kenya he love to hit sixes he is a agressive player he is a pathan he is too angry

He is the best batsman in pakistani side and his records are: he has maken fastest centuary of just 37 balls.

3 Chris Gayle Chris Gayle

Gayle is the greatest hitter who can destroyed any opponents in no time because he has dynamic hand eye coordination with Popeye looking fore arms even short arm jab can travel long way flick cut and trade mark square drive is the great examples that his hitting power.

I think he's the best and deserves to be in first position he's clear in his shots and never miss judges them he is one of the big hitters present in todays cricket

He is known as "GOD OF SIXES. "

From The Biggest Fan of Chris Gayle (MKM)

Do see his hitting in rcb. Murder of the cricket ball.

4 Yuvraj Singh


6 sixes in an over... longest hit in T20 matches... enough said for the wise

May so many players like viru gilly are their he is the man who made India win in many matches and tournaments as he had hit by cancer he is not playing up to the mark other wise he is number one

India sixes king yuvraj singh

5 Sir Donald Bradman Sir Donald Bradman Sir Donald George Bradman often referred to as "The Don", was an Australian international cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time. Bradman's career Test batting average of 99.94 has been cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any major sport.

A powerful smasher. Record of the fastest century in just 22 balls.
Average against:
South Africa = 201.5
West Indies=74.05

Enough said

Best batsman ever

6 Mahendra Singh Dhoni Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Best cricketer in the world

Helicopter shot create

Even though I'm not Indian I'm saying this guy can hit MILES I remember that helicopter shot he did it practically went out of the stadium - Electrician

I think though there are many big hitters of ball in this cricket generation Dhoni is the only batsmen who hits powerful and big sixes according to the situation of match

7 Sir Vivian Richards

he taught the cricketing world to play fearlessly n to attack bowlers

Greatest ever


8 Adam Gilchrist

Cricket is more than just about boundaries and sixes but I guess I'm in minority with people who admire great fast bowling and batsmen who counter them with authority.. And the batsmen who can tear up any bowling is gilly

He is far better than viru. He should be number 1. He made a test hundred of just 57 balls. He is a smart cricketer. I like him. He rocks the ipl

He is the best hitter of the ball. Gilchrist rocks. Chris gayle is no match to Gilchrist

True Match winner Big event performer

9 Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a former Indian cricketer and captain, widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.

He should be no 1 because he has not got the freedom to smash the bowlers like sehwag, gilchrist etc because the entire team was depended on him for many years. Even then his strike rate is about 85 in ODI's (after 440 ODI's). If at all he had the freedom then it would be much higher.


In know best hitter list he is 8 number but any one can not say god of cricket to hitting long six sachin is god of cricket and sachin you will always be remembered

If any batsman can score 100 centuries in international so he deserve to be in top

10 Sanath Jayasuriya

He is the greatest hitter who can destroyed any opponents in no time because he has dynamic hand eye coordination with Popeye looking fore arms even short arm jab can travel long way flick cut and trade mark square drive is the great examples that his hitting power.

Sanath is Best Blaster hitter in Cricket ever ever... Sanath should number 1 in this title. Never seen by others like magnificent shots. Love his play ever. Really missing Sanath's Play in cricket. He is father of modern cricket. Trend setter of modern cricket. He was started already T20 in 1996.

I think he should be number 1 frankly irrespective of country he belongs we should accept that he was the most feared batsman of all time during his prime.. I don't see others who can be compared with him apart from that he is the number 1 impact player for the team and he was the best allrounder. It's always been a pleasure to respect someone who changed the game of cricket. If someone doesn't agree this please watch 96 world cup...

Sanath is the greatest hitter in the history cum a classic player whatsoever is the requirement. He was the trend setter of modern cricket.
