"Even if they had some kind of collision in that match, that was just part of the game," said Bhatia, who was part of the KKR team in that match."Later on, I didn't see them fighting (Gambir and Kohli). In the midst of the moment, many things happen. But, it shouldn't happen for the worst. The 40-year-old added," It wasn't like that on that day.

Becoming the Best cricketer in the world in 2020 is a more difficult challenge than in the history of the game. Proving mastery of a title like this isn't enough, nor can core ball specialists claim enough.To be considered the best cricketer in the world, success in all three formats is a must.The cricket factor is important for betting on T20, 50 over and Tests and this was the main factor when creating this list.Top 10 Best Cricketers in the World:1-Kapil Dev - Best Cricketer in the WorldKapil Dev has played over 130 Tests for India and was considered the best cricketer in the world during his long career.Dev has a good record roster, including being the only player to score 4,000 test runs and take 400 test wickets.Along with Ian Botham, Ben Stokes, Richard Hadley, and Jack Callis, Dave is in solid talks as the second-best player in an overall test (after the Garfield Supers).A brilliant captain, talented batsman, and competent pitcher, Dev beat Gavaskar and Tendulkar for first place.2 - Sunil Gavaskar - Best Cricketer in the WorldNot only was Sunil Gavaskar a prolific running player and arguably the greatest player of all time, but he also set standards for Indian cricketers, taking the team to new levels of professionalism and introducing a work ethic never seen before.Gavaskar drove from the front in more ways than one. He was a handsome shooter when needed and his extensive defensive technique, combined with his steely mindset, made him a very difficult person to write off.3 - Sachin Tendulkar - Best Cricketer in the WorldSachin Tendulkar's net worth is believed to be over $100 million, making him the richest player in India. The teacher is seen in all audiences, loved more than anyone else in the country.Tendulkar was a technical perfection. Viv Richards hits the pillow and Ricky Ponting carefully draws his straight line.He has made many astonishing records in both Test and ODI. Tendulkar may have to be content with the third place in this list, but there is no doubt that he is number one in the eyes of the Indian public.4 - Virat Kohli - Best Cricketer in the WorldPlaying in the IPL era, the era of celebrity makes Virat Kohli's net worth an unimaginable figure for cricketers over the past few decades.Kohli is still at his peak but has already established himself as one of the best cricketers India has ever produced. Some say the quarter is generous, though Kohli's influence as a hitter and captain is enormous. India is by far the most powerful country.Historically prolific in all three forms, Kohli could end his career as the greatest hitter of the 21st century.5 - Anil Kumble - Best Cricketer in the WorldIt is only 619 proof wickets for Anil Kumble. Patience, determination, and clever variations propelled Kumble to pursue a career beyond his natural talent.The player who broke his leg was not just a football player, but changed his pace quite well, making most of his throws faster than regular bowling. The lateral movement was never great, but it did enough to engage the hitters.There are more talented Indian spinners than Kumble, but no one can match his demand. He has created magic on more than one occasion in front of the biggest cricket grounds in the world...6 - Raul Dravid - Best Cricketer in the WorldWhile Sehwag was explosive, Rahul Dravid was a traditional cricketer's dream come true. With high elbows, a straight face, and good leg speed, The Wall is the fourth-highest Test scorer of all time.Though considered a Test specialist, Dravid has developed his game throughout his career to become an effective ball hitter. He was the fifth Indian cricketer to be inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame.7 - Varinder Sehwag - Best Cricketer in the WorldVirender Sehwag was not the editor of the textbook. His technique didn't come from a training manual, but he was as entertaining as any Test player and was arguably the most destructive player in the game.Sehwag made a triple horn in running with the ball and played two horns at the same pace. The bowling attack was wiped out an hour after Sehwag crashed: hitting him consistently to the limit was exciting and effective.8 - MS Dhoni - Best Cricketer in the WorldA World Cup winner and one of the best goalkeepers in the history of the game, MS Dhoni is the epitome of the modern game, a true 3D phenomenon.Dhoni is known for his white-ball sensation, and rightly so, with an ODI average of over 50 and countless heroic chases, but he was also an elite Test player. He was selected thrice in the ICC Test XI and has a career average of 38.Wicketkeeping skills should also not be overlooked. Donnie could whip Bell faster than he could have imagined. The guy who brought us the picture of the helicopter was locked in the top ten.|9 - Javagal Srinath - Best Cricketer in the WorldJavagal Srinath is one of the lowest-rated Indian cricketers. When spin was the name of the game in the 90s, Srinath, an aggressive fast-paced high-voltage shooter, used to charge on the wrong courts.If needed, Srinath could have released it in the mid-90s. Like many intercontinental pace bowlers, he can spin up, making him an effective player at any time.At the time of his retirement in 2002, only one fast Indian player (Kapil Dev) had more than 236 wickets in Srinath.10 - Bishan Bedi - Best Cricketer in the WorldOutspoken and often controversial, Bishan Bedi has had a tough time with Indian cricket. Gaining a foothold as a test country during the 1960s and 1970s, it is far from being a global power today.Pedi was the star of the time. He completed his Test run at the age of 29 with 266 wickets, his effective control of left-arm rotation leaving batsmen stuck at one end.Bedi is second in every ancient tour test, and though it is not just a spinning ball, its graceful versatility of flight throws batsmen out of balance.More Read - Who is the IPL God of 2020?
