Best 'Smashing' Batsmen


The Top Ten

1 Virender Sehwag

Only batsman who has smashed bowlers in all formats of the game, be it T20, ODI or test.
Sehwag - T20, ODI, Test
Gayle - T20
Afridi - ODI, T20
Gilchrist - ODI
Yuvraj - ODI, T20
Bradman- Test
Richard- ODI, Tests
Tendulkar- ODI, Test
Jayasurya- ODI
Srikanth - ODI

Best opener ever virender sehwag
He is a match winner and he is crazy as hell when it comes to hit balls!
India is incomplete without virender sehwag!

He never plays for his own
Whenever he is 99 he is the only batsman who can attempt sixes or boundaries.

He is undoubtedly, the best hitter of the ball, the world has seen. Such immense power hitting, those cracking boundaries on the off side, reaching the boundary in less than a seconds. There is nothing boring about him.

3 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)

5 Sir Donald Bradman Sir Donald Bradman Sir Donald George "Don" Bradman, AC, often referred to as "The Don", was an Australian cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time.

A powerful smasher. Record of the fastest century in just 22 balls.

Enough said

Best batsman ever

6 Mahendra Singh Dhoni

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

He is just awesome in clearing the fence. Helicopter.. Most dangerous batsman and captain

I think legand the man

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

My best hitter

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

Worstless useless batsman

The Contenders

11 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...

He is the trend setter of modern day cricket. His effortless smashes. His off side cuts. What to say? Once upon a time bowlers were scared while Sanath used to be on the crease.

He should be in top 10 as far as smashing is concern.

20 Brian Lara

Brian Lara= Brain Lara. I think he is the most genius player in the world. And he also can play longest form of game like Test and very difficult to out him. He can hit ball in every where. His Classic batting style make him the most best batsman ever in cricket History. I can put him equal to Sachin Tendulker. Both Are Genius. And both average is not far different.
