6. Yuvraj Singh

This left-handed brilliance played 304 ODIs for India, scoring 8701 runs with 52 half-centuries and 14 centuries. Yuvraj Singh’s sheer performance has been one of the many reasons for the Indian team to lift the 2011 World Cup. While his batting skills remain undebatable, this left-arm spinner has also pulled quite a stunning show as a bowler.

He has two hat-tricks in a single edition of IPL which is still a record.  During his retirement in 2019, he had 111 wickets and 94 catches contributing to his hall of fame.
