With a simple willow, the game’s greatest batsmen built their name by routinely slamming the most fearsome bowlers or standing steadfastly in defense against those threatening with the cherry.

These batsmen have reached the list of the top 10 greatest batsmen of all time because of their incredible averages and ability to have a single-handed impact on the team’s fortunes.

The ‘Black Bradman’ George Headley of the West Indies and South Africa’s Graeme Pollock, who both averaged well over 60 in their respective countries’ Test matches, is conspicuously absent from the requirement of at least 50 matches.

1. Don Bradman (Australia) 

One of the greatest men of all time. This flamboyant Australian, who finished with an average that has become the most well-known in sports history, Bradman’s aura made him a benchmark in the world of cricket.

His superhuman statistics made Bradman the peak of human achievement in athletics, transcending the game that he played.

2. Sachin Tendulkar (India) 

India’s protector and the one to turn to when things go wrong. Tendulkar’s greatness transcended the record books and his logic-defying consistency since he was responsible for the whole Indian population for over two and a half decades.

While still a bashful sixteen-year-old in Faisalabad, Tendulkar went on to stamp his authority on every country, against every bowler, and eventually became the identity and pride of his nation.

The mammoth Tendulkar triumphed over Akhtar’s lightning speed and Warne’s brilliance with ease, cementing his place among the all-time greats. a step above “The Don”? On that one, there’s still no clear answer!

3. Sir Jack Hobbs (England)

Hobbs was the first ‘Master’ of cricket, contributing a variety of new shots to the sport’s repertoire. Hobbs was the first batsman to average more than 50 in Test cricket and the first cricketer to be knighted by the Queen, both without the benefit of professional instruction. Sir Hobbs continues to be a major impact on modern-day batsmen with his 199 competitive cricket centuries and seven Test centuries after the age of forty, including a century at the age of 46.

4. Sir Walter Hammond (England) 

There can be no better way, to sum up, Sir Walter Hammond’s excellence than to compare and contrast him to Don Bradman as the finest pre-war batter. Even after Bradman achieved the global mark with 336 runs, Hammond and the Australian shared a fierce competition, especially after Hammond broke Bradman’s world record.

Alastair Cook just broke Hammond’s record for most Test runs, which he held when he retired as England’s top batsman with 22 hundred.

5. Brian Lara (West Indies) 

When Brian Lara was tasked with rescuing West Indian cricket from the brink of oblivion, he also had to match the brilliance of the likes of Sobers, Richards, and George Headley.

Like his well-established peers, Lara has not only kept pace with but also distinguished himself from the pack with his impressive record of accomplishments.

The Trinidadian batsman ended his career with two first-class scores in excess of 400, providing the audience with a taste of the strength that West Indies cricket once had.

6. Sir Garfield Sobers (West Indies) 

Sir Garfield Sobers, the finest all-rounder in the history of the game, combined an uncanny batting technique with a boisterous Caribbean demeanor. On the off-side as well as on the bowling side, the left-hander was as adept. He was the first player in history to hit six sixes against Malcolm Nash.

A record holder for the highest individual score in a Test match, Sobers was a standout member of the West Indian team of legends that would go on to dominate the cricketing arena in the next decade.

7. Jacques Kallis (South Africa) 

It’s hard to think of any cricketer as more priceless than Jacques Kallis, who is one of a billion in this world’s cricket museum. As Jacques Kallis, the world’s greatest all-rounder, this remark perfectly captures the aura of the man. Kallis won the most man-of-the-match honors in the history of Test cricket with a fixed determination that warded off all distractions.

His achievements were sometimes overshadowed by those of Ricky Ponting or Sachin Tendulkar, but he remained the classic and conventional unsung hero.

8. Sir Vivian Richards (West Indies) 

Prior to the arrival of the likes of Sehwag and Gilchrist, Viv Richards had established himself as one of the most fearsome and dominant batsmen that the bowlers had ever faced. The batsman from the Caribbean, to this day, remains the most feared cricketer of all time thanks to his pitch-perfect timing and a demeanor that oozed confidence.

9. Sunil Gavaskar (India) 

Before Tendulkar became a household name in India, Gavaskar paved the way for a generation of cricketers to follow in his footsteps. Gavaskar, the first player to hit 10,000 runs in a Test match, played with an almost perfect technique and an unsurpassed level of concentration.

They believe that in order to be the best, one must be able to compete against the best in the industry, an area in which Gavaskar excelled. 2749 runs at an average of 65 against the West Indies’ mighty 1970s and 1980s ‘Best Team to Have Ever Played Test Cricket’ speaks its own story, as does 13 hundred against them.

10. Greg Chappell (Australia) 

Even though he didn’t play for Australia for two years because he joined the breakaway World Series Cricket, Greg Chappell still makes our ranking of the Top 10 Batsmen of All Time, pipping Ricky Ponting despite his illustrious record.

After facing Michael Holding, Colin Croft, and Joel Garner, Chappell laid the stage for a new aggressive breed of Australian cricketers who would go on to rule the world.
