@ 50th Place - Yuvraj Singh



Experience: 2000-present
Country: India
Other major teams: Punjab, Kings XI Punjab
Career stats in Tests: 40 matches, 1,900 runs, 33.92 average, 169 highest score, 3 100s
Career stats in ODIs: 304 matches, 8,701 runs, 36.55 average, 87.67 strike rate, 150 highest score, 14 100s

Yuvraj Singh was an X factor for India in his heyday. He started his career by scoring an 80-ball 84 against the mighty Australians. Although he has had his ups and downs in his career, he did well for India in its victorious campaigns in the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup. In the 2007 World T20, Yuvi hit six sixes in an over against Stuart Broad and helped himself to a 12-ball fifty, the fastest fifty in T20Is. He played another gem of a knock against Australia by scoring 70 off just 30 balls, including five sixes.

In the 2011 World Cup, he battled cancer and became the player of the tournament for his all-round display. He made 362 runs at an average of 90.50 and picked up 15 wickets at an average of 25.13.

@ 49, Geoffrey Boycott


Experience: 1964-82
Country: England
Other major teams: Yorkshire
Career stats in Tests: 108 matches, 8,114 runs, 47.72 average, 246 highest score, 22 100s
Career stats in ODIs: 36 matches, 1,082 runs, 36.06 average, 53.66 strike rate, 105 highest score, 1 100s
Geoffrey Boycott was one of the most successful openers in his era. He still is the sixth-highest run-getter of all time as an opener with 8,091 runs at an average of 48.16.

Most batsmen would be well past his prime after they turn 35. Boycott, on the other hand, piled on runs, making 3,535 runs at an average of 47.77.
His average, 58.76, is the best average in the fourth innings of a Test match for players who have scored at least 1,000 runs in the last innings of a Test.

#48, Kevin Pietersen


Experience: 2004-13
Country: England
Other major teams: Surrey, Hampshire
Career stats in Tests: 104 matches, 8,181 runs, 47.28 average, 61.72 strike rate, 227 highest score, 23 100s
Career stats in ODIs: 136 Matches, 4,440 runs, 40.73 average, 86.58 strike rate, 130 highest score, 9 100s

Kevin Pietersen had an excellent start to his Test and ODI career. He started his Test career in the 2005 Ashes and was the highest run-getter in the series, producing 473 runs at a 52.55 average against the likes of Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Brett Lee and Jason Gillespie.
In ODIs, Pieterson debuted in a series against Zimbabwe and scored 104 runs at 104.00. He showed he had the s****s and mettle to take the best in the world in the subsequent series against South Africa, where he scored 454 runs at an average of 151.33 and a strike rate of 105.58.
The English middle-order batsman is arguably the greatest England batsman of the modern era. He won 10 Man of the Match awards during his Test career, which is third only to Kumar Sangakkara (12) and Rangana Herath (11) during the period.
The swashbuckling batsman was the player of the tournament in the 2010 World T20, which England won. He scored 248 runs at an average of 62.00 and a strike rate of 137.77.

#47 Tillakaratne Dilshan


Experience: 1999-2016
Country: Sri Lanka
Other major teams: Singha Sports Club,Surrey, Royal Challengers Bangalore
Career stats in Tests: 87 matches, 5,492 runs, 40.98 average, 65.54 strike Rate, 193 highest score, 16 100s
Career stats in ODIs: 330 matches, 10,290 runs, 39.27 average, 86.23 strike rate, 161 highest score, 22 100s

Not many batsmen could do what Tillakaratne Dilshan did. He has a shot named after himself, "Dilscoop" — a shot he used in the 2009 World T20 to earn the player of the tournament.
In the early years of his career, he batted in the middle order and had only moderate success. However, he became a different player once he started opening. The Sri Lankan scored 7,361 runs at an average of 46.04, including 21 hundreds as an opener in ODIs.
The destructive batsman scored 500 runs, most runs in the tournament, at an average of 62.50 and led Sri Lanka to the final of the 2011 World Cup.

#46 MS Dhoni


Experience: 2004-present
Country: India
Other major teams: Chennai Super Kings, Jharkhand
Career stats in Tests: 90 matches, 4,876 runs, 38.09 average, 59.11 strike rate, 224 highest score, 6 100s
Career stats in ODIs: 341 matches, 10,500 runs, 50.72 average, 87.55 strike rate, 183 highest score, 10 100s

MS Dhoni is arguably the best ODI finisher of all time. "Dhoni finishes off in style" has become a cliché among commentators as the former Indian captain has finished the game countless times.
His match-winning 91 off 79 balls in the 2011 World Cup final will be remembered forever. The powerful right-hander helped India clinch the World Cup after 28 years by smashing Nuwan Kulasekara for a six.
Though Dhoni couldn’t replicate the high standards he set in ODIs to Tests, he is the third-highest run-getter as a wicket-keeper batsman behind Adam Gilchrist (5,570) and Mark Boucher (5,515).
