Top 5 Batsmen

Countdown to ICC cricket world cup 2011 has already begun. Mere 7 days to go. Starting today almost all my blog posts are going to revolve around cricket. *Simply love this game*

To kick off the proceedings, lets take a look at my list of top 5 batsmen featuring in this WC. The list in is in descending order, with my favorite on the the top. So, lets go, lets go.


1. Sachin Tendulkar – God of Cricket. Plays for India. This one’s an Ad featuring the master. Just goes to show when he bats, an entire nation comes to a SATNDTILL. Long live the god.



2. Ricky Ponting – Australian captain and one of the best batsmen in the world. No one plays the hook better than him. His aura has certainly dimmed but he still remains a giant killer, he would be out there to prove a point.



3. AB de Villiers – A super batsman from South Africa. He is most likely to end up with more than 10,000 runs in both ODIs and Tests. Exciting prospect.



4. Mohammad Ashraful – Extremely talented batsman. His statistics may not be extraordinary but he’s a fantastic player to watch. I hope he does well in the WC.



5. Umar Akmal – The best under-22 batsman. If all goes by the script, this kid is destined to be the next big superhero for Pakistan. Eager to see him perform at the big stage.



Who are your top 5?
