IPL News: The bad fight between Gautam Gambir and Virat Kohli occupied more headlines than the winning punches in the match. Fans and critics still remember how the Delhi boys went into a verbal battle in 2013 during the IPL match when the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) hosted the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the M Chinnaswamy stadium.However, the cause of this battle is still unknown. Gambir and Kohli both played down the accident on many occasions, but the man who separated the duo from the confrontation recently spoke on the same thing.Rajat Bhatia, who tried to stop Gambir and Kohli, did his best to calm things down, recently spoke to the Asianet Newsable, and said that he was just very competitive players who act very strangely in the midst of this moment."This is something that happened when two aggressive leaders played, and always wanted to do their best and win their teams." "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. "In that match, RCB won that match with eight wickets over KKR. After chasing 155 to win, the hosts rode Chris Gayle's sparkling punch 85 strokes to hit the target with 15 balls to spare.Young Kohli scored 35 before being caught by Ewen Morgan outside Lakshmipathi Balaji in the tenth final. It was his class that led to an unpleasant conflict during the celebration of KKR.article source: crickettimesAlso Read: India May Tour South Africa In August For Three-Match T20I Series

best cricketer in the world

Who are The Best Cricketers in the World | Pitch High

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?

longest six in cricket history

From the Pitch to the Stratosphere: Top 10 Longest Cricket Sixes

  • Oct 26, 2023

Huge sixes in cricket have always thrilled fans and remained a topic of conversation for years to come. While some former cricketers and pundits argue that these colossal hits should receive extra recognition, the precision and reliability of technology, which is regularly scrutinized when measuring such distances, have not supported these claims. Nevertheless, it's always a delight to recall some of the most unforgettable moments in the game. So, let's revisit the longest sixes ever hit in the history of international cricket.1. Shahid Afridi || 153 meters vs. South AfricaMost people consider Afridi to be one of the most dangerous players in cricket. Afridi was an all-round player with a reputation for hard hitting and leg-spin bowling. With 37 deliveries, Afridi also held the world record for the fastest ODI century. The record, held for 17 years, was broken by Corey Anderson. It should come as no surprise that Shahid Afridi is the owner of the record for the longest six hits in international cricket as his name is frequently at the top of lists such to this one. This six that he hammered off Ryan McLaren is one of the most talked-about sixes in cricket history, given the distance it covered.2. Brett Lee || 130 meters vs. EnglandBrett Lee was a key member of the Australian squad that clinched the 2003 World Cup. His Test debut took place in 1999, and he bid farewell to international cricket on July 12, 2012. Lee's Test career came to a close with an impressive tally of 310 wickets, and he secured 380 wickets in One Day Internationals. From 2000 to 2009, only Muttiah Muralitharan outshone Lee in terms of ODI wickets, establishing him as one of the premier bowlers of his era. Among the numerous entries in the list of longest sixes, one that stands out is Brett Lee's monumental hit against West Indies, a shot that originated from an improbable source. In that particular game at the Gabba, Brett Lee contributed 47 runs for the home team, but it's his single six in that innings that remains etched in memory.One remarkable instance was the 2005 Ashes Test at Edgbaston, where Lee nearly steered Australia to a remarkable comeback in a gripping and thrilling match. Despite his aggressive demeanor on the field, Lee rarely allowed his emotions to overcome him. He relished competing against opponents and displayed sportsmanship, even in defeat, often sporting his signature smile. Lee was not only a formidable opponent but also a gentleman off the field, fostering good relationships with players from rival teams. He was one of the few Australian cricketers who was widely admired in India.3. Martin Guptill || 127 meters vs South AfricaGuptill is the first New Zealand cricketer and the sixth overall to make a double century in a One Day International match. His 237 not-out holds the highest individual score in Cricket World Cup matches and the second-best score in One Day Internationals. Guptill's left foot has only two toes. He lost three toes in a forklift accident when 13 years old. He is known as "Two Toes" within the New Zealand cricket team. Martin Guptill of New Zealand is an unsurprising name on this list, having dazzled cricket fans with his incredible power-hitting on numerous occasions.

The main disadvantage is that the opener has scored these runs against teams with a weak bowling attack. He's had to contend with teams like Australia, South Africa, and England.

He notched up a stunning 350 runs from just 138 balls while playing for his club team, Nantwich.

He is known for his exceptional skills and performances. Notably, in a T20I game against Pakistan at Headingley last year, Livingstone smashed a colossal six that soared to an astounding distance of 122 meters, even leaving the stadium boundaries.5. Corey Anderson || 122 meters vs. IndiaGuptill is the first New Zealand cricketer and the sixth overall to make a double century in a One Day International match.

Guptill will face all of the teams in the World Cup at least once, so he must ensure that he gets runs against the weaker opponents and the heavyweights.6. Mark Waugh || 120 meters vs. New ZealandMark Waugh, often referred to as Junior due to being slightly younger than his twin brother Steve, comes from a cricketing family. His brother Dean Waugh also has a cricketing background, having represented New South Wales in both first-class and List A cricket. While Mark has often been in the shadow of his more renowned brother Steve, he remains one of the lesser-acknowledged cricketers in the exceptional Australian cricket team.Mark Waugh, however, has had his fair share of memorable moments on the cricket field. One such instance occurred during New Zealand's 1997 tour of Australia when he faced Daniel Vettori. Waugh showcased his remarkable strokeplay by striding down the track and smashing the ball an astonishing 120 meters down the ground at the WACA. His batting style has drawn comparisons to legendary cricketers such as Stan McCabe, Alan Kippax, Victor Trumper, Charlie Macartney, and Greg Chappell. His elegant and stylish approach to the game aligns him with these iconic names in cricket history.7. Yuvraj Singh || 119 meters vs. AustraliaYuvraj Singh's illustrious cricket career was marked by several accolades, including the prestigious Arjuna Award, India's second-highest sporting honor, which he received from the Indian government in 2012. Yuvraj's exceptional all-round abilities were on full display during the 2011 World Cup, where he etched his name in history by becoming the first player to achieve a remarkable feat - taking a 5-wicket haul and scoring 50 runs in the same World Cup match. His overall performance in the tournament was outstanding, with 15 wickets and 362 runs to his name, earning him the well-deserved title of the "Man of the Tournament." Yuvraj Singh's elegant and masterful strokeplay has earned him a place among cricket's greatest batsmen.Yuvraj's incredible six-hitting prowess was exemplified during the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007. In a match against Australia, he showcased his legendary hitting with an astonishing shot, breaking the official record for the longest six ever struck by an Indian batsman. Facing a delivery from Brett Lee that clocked over 90 mph, the left-handed Yuvraj flicked it effortlessly over square leg, sending the ball soaring a remarkable 119 meters.In the subsequent years, Yuvraj Singh dedicated himself to improving his fitness and made a successful return to the cricketing arena in early 2017 after missing the 2015 World Cup and 2016 World T20. Recognizing his experience and skills, Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, saw Yuvraj as a valuable addition, particularly with the 2017 Champions Trophy approaching. Following his comeback, Yuvraj delivered several outstanding innings, including a scintillating performance against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy opener. However, after the Champions Trophy, Yuvraj, along with a few other senior players, was dropped from India's squad. His fielding, which had once been exceptional, notably declined during this phase, highlighting the challenges of maintaining top form over an extended career.8. Mahendra Singh Dhoni || 118 meters vs. New ZealandMahendra Singh Dhoni, fondly known as MS Dhoni, bid farewell to international cricket in all formats on August 15, 2020.

Under his leadership, India also clinched the Asia Cup in 2010 and 2016.In the world of One Day International (ODI) cricket, MS Dhoni is renowned for his exceptional finishing abilities. He holds the record for the second-highest number of sixes by an Indian batsman. In a memorable moment during the third ODI of India's 2009 tour of New Zealand, Dhoni, the Indian captain, unleashed a colossal six that traveled an astounding 118 meters.Dhoni's association with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) is a remarkable tale. When the IPL gained prominence, cricket enthusiasts were eager to see which team would secure the services of the then-Indian skipper. The Chennai Super Kings, backed by an organization well-versed in managing sports, recognized the importance of strong leadership for building a successful franchise. They made a significant statement by signing Dhoni for a whopping 6 crores, making it the highest fee at the time. Dhoni's impact was profound, as he emerged as the third-highest run-scorer in the 2013 season, single-handedly leading CSK to the IPL final. Under his captaincy, CSK secured IPL titles in 2010, 2011, 2018, and 2021, cementing his legacy as one of the most successful and revered leaders in IPL history.9. Chris Gayle || 116 meters vs. IndiaChris Gayle is widely regarded as one of the greatest Twenty20 cricket batsmen in the history of the sport, and many even consider him the best. His contributions have been pivotal to the success of West Indies teams, which secured victories in the ICC Champions Trophy in 2004, the ICC World Twenty20 in 2012, and the ICC World Twenty20 in 2016. Chris Gayle's impact transcends all three formats of the game, and he has set numerous records. His reputation as one of the most formidable and powerful batsmen in cricket history is well-deserved. As a former captain of the West Indies, he holds the world record for the most sixes hit in international cricket and is known for launching some of the longest sixes seen in the game. One such monumental six was his 116-meter strike off Yusuf Pathan during a group stage match in the ICC T20 World Cup against India.His prowess in Twenty20 cricket led to high expectations during the 2008 auction, especially after his remarkable century in the inaugural ICC World T20 in 2007. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) acquired his services with a substantial bid of 800,000 USD. Gayle's next three years were nothing short of spectacular, marked by a century on debut, ending the 2011 season with 608 runs and the Orange Cap, amassing 733 runs and another Orange Cap in 2012, and achieving the record for the highest individual T20 score of 175 not out against the Pune Warriors in 2013, a feat that included a remarkable 31-ball century.10. Ijaz Ahmed || 115 meters vs. IndiaHe smacked Virender Sehwag for a 115m six and crossed one of India's largest stadiums.
