He is one of the biggest hitters of the Ball, he has more sixes than Chris Gayle, Shahid Afridi and AB de Villiers in this format playing lesser games. This speaks tons about his batting ability.

He is another shock name on the list, he is sure as hell known as an Aggressive Left hand Batsman but not known to be as deadly. He managed to score this fifty against Sri Lanka, when the Lankans toured India.

This is one of the reasons he is most feared opener in the mordern day. He went on to score 89 Runs off 43 Balls which includes 7 Fours and 6 Sixes.

Well I have got my spellings and facts right, he is not a made up name but Netherlands Top Order Batsman. What’s more astonishing is that he managed to score this lightening fifty in the T20 World Cup against Ireland. Most of you wouldn’t know his name, but he is a very destructive batsman. He managed to scored 63 Runs off 23 Balls with 4 Fours and 7 Sixes.

We all know the Irish never back down without a fight, and so didn’t this Opener. He hammered the Afghan Bowlers in a World Cup Qualifiers match. He single handedly managed to win the game for the Irishmen. He ended with 79 Runs of 38 Balls with 9 Fours and 3 Sixes.

2007 T20 World Cup. Yuvraj Singh. Stuart Broad. Six Sixes. These are words we have all heard over the years. But a fifty in 12 Balls is still unbelievable. The fastest possible fifty in Cricket would be in 9 Balls hitting all 9 for Sixes. This man took just 3 more balls than that. This proves why this record might never be broken. He went on to score 58 Runs of just 16 Balls in that knock he scored a total of 3 Fours and 7 Sixes.
