7. Chris Gayle:
Smashing the ball into the stands is probably the style of this left-handed West Indies opener who is the strength of the Caribbean team. His fearlessness is his trademark and his composure in playing pull shots without much effort shows how hazardous he is to the bowlers. This huge man holds a number of records to his name in different cricket formats and has a unique distinction of scoring a 100 in all three formats of the game. His most lethal performance with the bat in test cricket was that against Australia at Perth in 2009, where he pulled off his century in just 70 deliveries for which, he was named the man of the match. Indeed, ‘Gaylestorm’ is one of the most unstoppable forces in cricket.
