Before talking about Virat Kohli as a sportsman, it is worth mentioning his human qualities. All sportsmen and women are expected to show fair play and respect for their teammates and their opponents. This cricketer has proved that he has all the qualities of the perfect sportsman. It is no surprise that in the ICC Test Team, the jury gave him the role of captain. As far as these sporting skills are concerned, his talent is no longer shown. He had a rather weak season in 2015. However, he’s not only recovered but also to establish himself as one of the best players of the moment. Virat Kohli, unfortunately, does not have an official website, but he is very active on social networks Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Steven Peter Devereux Smith
A former captain of the Australian Cricket team, he was named the best batsman for three consecutive years (2015, 2016 and 2017). The scandal of 2018 considerably destroyed his sporting reputation, but not his sporting skills. In March 2018, the Australia national cricket team toured South Africa to play four Test matches against the South Africa national cricket team. On 24 March 2018, after lunch on the third day of the third Test match, Australia’s Cameron Bancroft was shown on the television coverage and on screens at the ground appearing to rub the ball with a small yellow object. As Captain of Australian tream, Seve Smith faced sanctions following the scandal. He remains one of the best contemporary batsmen and one of the ICC’s dream team members. Steve Smith is active on social networks. Those who wish to can follow him on Facebook.
The 32-year-old Australian international made his debut in 2011. Looking back over his career, he is every coach’s dream. His results have been improving over the last few years. In 2018 and 2019, he was even voted the best right-handed batsman. Even better, he is considered the most successful all-around player in the world today. Unfortunately, he does not have an official website. Still, it is possible to follow him and his career on Twitter and Facebook.
This Indian international is a right-handed opening batsman. He has played and plays respectively for Karnataka, Royal Challengers, Bangalore Delhi Daredevils, Rising Pune Supergiants, and Kings XI Punjab. In July 2019, he was finally invited to join the national cricket team. He owes this invitation to the results he got the previous year during the test against Australia. His performances are such that he literally collects awards and nominations in his native India and abroad. The least that can be said from observing his career is that he has a bright future ahead of him. His fans and those who are interested can follow his career on social networks Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
His presence in the world’s top players ranking in 2020 may seem illogical, especially since he had to give way to Mayank Agarwal last year due to his trauma. Not having been included in the ICC this year, he is at risk of being absent during the 2020 season. No one can read into the future and say, “if he were here, he probably would have…”, but in this case, he is being given the benefit of the doubt. Concerned fans can follow him on his Twitter, and Facebook accounts.
Ben Andrew Stokes started his professional career in 2010 and is a real success. This attacking middle-order batsman even holds several records. To understand how talented he is, suffice it to mention that in 2017 he was the highest-paid player in the Indian national championship. Better yet, he was named the ICC’s Best Cricketer in January 2020. He is the vice-captain of the English national team. He has a brilliant career ahead of him. Ben Stokes has his own official website.
Pat Cummins is one of the most talented players of this decade. His debut was brilliant, and his potential is still impressive. It is, therefore, not surprising that he has been named in the ICC Test Team. His career path is impressive, but he could have been better had it not been for his frail health. Over the last few years, he has suffered many injuries and traumas. Fortunately, he seems to be back in good shape, and all indications are that 2020 will be one of the best years of his career. The ICC is certain of this since it has included him on its dream team list. Like many players, he is very active on social networks, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
This fast left-arm bowler is a 30-year-old Australian player. He is one of the best players in the Australian national team, with whom he won the World Cup in 2015. His sporting performances are impressive. For example, he has one of the fastest throws in a test match, 160 km/h, during a match against New Zealand in 2015. Unlike other sportsmen and women, his performances are still clearly improving. So the best is yet to come. Fans can follow the career of this phenomenal player on his official website.
Most good cricket players are English, Pakistani, Indian, or Australian. For this reason, we can only be delighted to see a Barbadian national in this ranking. His sporting achievements are such that he joined the Caribbean national team at 21. Since then, he has been awarded several titles, including Cricketer of the Year, in 2018. His fans will certainly enjoy following him on his Twitter account.
The Pakistani prodigy is currently the captain of his country’s national team. The player has qualified for the finals. Babar Azam is one of the world’s best batsmen. He is a player whose name appears in every format of the ICC rankings, and given his young age, there is no doubt that the best is yet to come. Babar Azam is very active on social networks, especially Twitter.
It is a pity that the above list is limited to 10 players, as there are obviously several names worth adding. These include Rohit Sharma, Kane Williamson, Neil Wagner, Jos Butler, Mohammed Shammi, and Trent Boult.
