9. Brendon McCullum, New Zealand
It’s hard to find a player and a captain in the modern era who has had such an impact on his team’s performances since taking up the leadership job. With McCullum, New Zealand are world beaters, conquerors of the mighty, the second- favourite of every cricket fan. Without him, well that’s another debate. But the Kiwi leader is also a brilliant fielder, blazing through the field either as a keeper or in covers . McCullum has been a phenomenal fielder for New Zealand as well as his IPL franchise CSK, forming an impenetrable circle with the likes of Du Plessis, Raina & Jadeja. McCullum has grabbed 457 wickets both behind the wicket and in the field in International cricket.
