7. Hansie Cronje (South Africa) – 70.08
Hansie Cronje is regarded as one of the best captains South Africa has ever produced. Besides being a fantastic captain and an astute thinker of the game he was also known for his effective but simple way of batting. He was always there for the Proteas when they were in need of a man to rescue from collapses and in chasing big targets. Contributions made by Hansie Cronje to South African cricket is immense, which includes the heart breaking 1999 World Cup semi final loss to Australia. He always preferred to bat in the lower middle order and bail his team out of misery. Batting with the tail enders is an art, not mastered by many but he was right up there with the best.
