Top 30 Greatest Cricketers Ever (2017)

Sachin Tendulkar is obviously one of the most loved cricketers of all time. He is cited by many as one of the greatest cricketers ever. Here is list of 30 best cricketers in the world.

The most intense and most debated question in south Asian countries is not related to technology and nuclear power but to cricket. Cricket is treated like a religion in sub continent. The Indian sub continent might be divided on the basis of caste and religion but cricket unifies them all.

So the most asked and most debated question is that who is the greatest Cricketer of all time? Cricket has been in existence since mid 19th century but while other games of 19th century (Baseball,Football, Basketball and Tennis) expanded all over the world, cricket is still played by less than dozen countries. Yes there are as many as 16 nations who play during ODI world cup but there are only 10 nations that play test cricket.

Have a look on 30 greatest Cricketers of all time:

Greatest Cricketers in the world

30. Virat Kohli
Greatest Cricketers
Yes the modern wonder Boy has done enough already to be included in the list of greatest cricketers of all time. Virat has chased down most unimaginable targets and that too in a manner that it made batting look ridiculously easy. Many are expecting that Virat will break all the records of Sachin and Lara in world cricket. Raise your expectations guys because Virat performs better under pressure.
29. AB Devilliers
Greatest Cricketers
AB Devilliers in many ways is one #ell of a cricketer. He plays unimaginable shots and can score against any team and against any target. ABD tops Virat only because Virat is a perfect text book cricketer but ABD has invented many new shots in the world cricket.
28. Anil Kumble
Greatest Cricketers
Anil Kumble is not only a great cricketer but a true inspiration as well. The man holds degree in Mechanical Engineering and still managed to play to the national level and become a legend. Anil took all 10 wickets against arch rival Pakistan in 1999. It was a feat that is only achieved by two bowlers and it is next to impossible to achieve. He is known for his tough attitude.
27. Sanath Jayasuriya
Greatest Cricketers
Jayasuriya was one of the fiercest openers in the world. In the era of test cricketers Sanath was theone who truly adapted the one day form and maintained his strike rate on the high side. He played more than 450 ODI and in his long career he broke many cricket records.
26. Saurav Ganguly
Greatest Cricketers
Saurav Ganguly was the one who paved way for the new generation cricketers that included Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag. Saurav was a hard hitting opened who scored 22 tons in ODI.
25. Mahela Jayawardene
Greatest Cricketers
Jayawardene was one of the calmest batsmen in world cricket. He took Sri Lankan cricket to the new heights. Mahela broke many records in cricket but it was his gesture on and off ground that made him a true legend.
24. Clive Loyd
Greatest Cricketers
West Indian Captain Clive Lloyd may not ring a bell to modern cricket fans but back in 70s he was a legend. He took West Indies to the final in first three cricket world cups in 1975, 1979 and 1983 and won on two occasions. Only if it wasn’t Kapil dev’s Indian cricket team in 1983 then Clive would surely have become a captain to make hat trick of world cup wins.
23. Sunil Gavaskar
Greatest Cricketers
Sunil gavaskar was the batting legend who paved way for young batsman such as Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli in coming years. He was the first batsman to touch the 10,000 runs mark in world cricket. Also he held the records for most centuries in world cricket until it was broken by Sachin Tendulkar.
22. Ian Botham
Greatest Cricketers
Ian Botham is ICC hall of fame cricketer. He was among the favourites during the Ashes series in 1980s. Ian botham is even knighted by Queen Elizabeth herself.
21. Inzamam Ul Haq
Greatest Cricketers
It was once said that Inzamam’s placement is so perfect that he has never had hard time in finding gap between fielders. If his career was not over shadowed by funny run outs then he would surely have posed a serious threat to top run scorers in world cricket.
