3. Joe Root (England)
Joe Root who wears the looks of a school boy has the knack of scoring big runs against the big boys on the biggest of stages possible. Be it any format of the game, Root doesn’t mind as he only knows one thing, go out in the middle and score runs for his country again and again. And then to repeat this cycle again. The elegant batter who played an enterprising knock on his Test debut against India at Nagpur has not looked back since then. And now after playing 39 Tests, the 25-year-old Yorkshireman averages almost 55 while in the 50-overs format his average is around 44. Root will surely end up as one of the future legends of cricket.
