Top Left-Handed Batsmen in International Cricket

How do you select your daily fantasy cricket team? Whom do you include in your team and whom you do not?  

When you are selecting your batsmen for your fantasy cricket leagues online, you both right handed and left handed one, if you get both in your pool of players to select. 

We have lots and lots of right handed batsmen in the international cricket world. And we have some of the very talented left handed batsmen who have changed the definition of success for their respective team through their talent. 

Here is the list of best left handed batsmen of all time in the world cricket:  

Kumar Sangakkara 

He is s batsman who possessed a fine technique. With a cool mind, he employs all the strokes in the book, from the back foot and the front foot. His Test average of 57.40 is one of the all time best. A one day career with 25 centuries and 93 half centuries is better than most in the cricket world. 

Brian Lara 

The only player to have a century, a double century, a triple century and a quadruple century in Test cricket! He also has a five-hundred plus score in a first class match! He is a player of extraordinary skills and will always be revered. 

Adam Gilchrist 

Gilchrist believed in ‘See the ball, hit the ball’ principle. Gilchrist opened the batting, played a whirlwind innings. And by the time the opposition caught its breath, would depart having done his job. Going in first or seventh, wearing whites or colour reds, Adam Gilchrist was the symbolic heart of Australia’s steamrolling agenda. And he is the most exhilarating cricketer of the modern age. 17 centuries, HS of 204*, an average of 47.60 that too at a SR of 81.95, are awe inspiring numbers for any batsman, leave aside a number 7, as he was. He is one of the main reasons why Australia achieved the greatness, during his times. 

Matthew Hayden 

Strength was Matthew Hayden’s strength – both mental and physical. This man demoralized the bowler and the opposition like no other. He would time and again intimidate the bowler by moving ahead of his crease and would cart him for boundaries repeatedly and disturb his rhythm. Hayden was one of the finest Test batsmen from Australia, with an average of 50.73, 30 centuries and HS of 380. 

Clive Lloyd 

Mostly remembered as the captain of the famous invincible West Indies squad of the ’70s and ’80s, Clive Lloyd was a very successful batsman. Though not as brutal as Vivian Richards, Lloyd was also a hard hitter of the ball and could demoralise the opposition.

Sourav Ganguly 

Sourav Ganguly is a batsman who combined grace with surgical precision in his stroke play. With crisp timing and stylish drives, Ganguly made batting look beautiful. And he has fine records in both ODIs as well as test formats. 

Sanath Jayasuriya 

He is the hurricane who demolishes the bowling in his inimitable style at the top of the innings, changes the way the first 15 overs of the ODIs. With 28 ODI hundreds, an ODI strike rate of 91.20, and a test high score of 340, he certainly is one of the greats who had an impact on the game.

The History of Marylebone Cricket Club

The cricket stadiums have now evolved a lot from the past years. It is said the aura of a cricket stadium adds appeal to the game. Don’t you choose your playing XI in the fantasy cricket games, according to the ground a match is being held?  

Perhaps now while playing fantasy cricket, you will not come across or find MCC mentioned anywhere, but this one has a deep history linked to cricket. Let us together explore it: 

It was the 1787 and the Marylebone Cricket Club evolved from the White Conduit Club. Thomas Lord laid out his first ground in Dorset Square at the request of members. Lord was forced to move his ground in 1810 to an area bordering Regent’s Park. However, that was far from popular. And in 1814 he moved for the last time to the present site of the stadium. 

In 1825, the initial pavilion, housing the club’s artefacts, was burned down. However, over the coming century, the ground and the club evolved into being the hub of the cricket world. 

Its members amended the laws in 1788 and slowly took on the task for cricket throughout the globe. In the 1870s also drew up the first laws of tennis. The club was the most crucial in the globe during the 19th century and many major matches involved MCC sides and were played at Lord’s. 

The club took over the task of choosing touring sides in 1903 – 1904, previously the domain of private individuals. England overseas continued to be officially named MCC until the late 1970s. 

ICC taking charge of running the international game:

To lots of people’s minds the MCC, famed for its loud colours of red and yellow – more usually referred to as egg and bacon – is something of a relic in modern cricket, and the club is aware of that. As the game evolved so its role in the game changed. The ICC took charge of running the international game and the TCCB which was latterly the ECB, the national one. The MCC took on more of an embassy role abroad, sending high-standard teams, usually featuring a dash of Test and county players, to tour emerging nations as well as fielding more than 400 sides in outmatches across the UK each of the summers. The club has also vigorously promoted the Spirit of Cricket which looks to certify that all players take part in harmony with the culture and spirit of the game. 

In 1997, after years of bitter infighting, it voted to permit women to join the 18,000+ membership and to enter the pavilion. There was no huge overnight influx, mainly because of the waiting list which means it can take two decades to climb on. Nor did the ground shift on its axis.
