10 - Shahid Afridi

We toyed with making him King Cricket, because we love him more than the biggest Transformer in the world, but he’s not actually that good in any traditional sense.

Shahid Afridi coming out to bat in a dull game is like fancying a ham sandwich and then getting a knock on the door from the hog roast man and he’s giving away free hog (and baguettes).

Never has anyone played with such palpable disregard for his own wicket or the match situation. The best part is: he does it EVERY SINGLE TIME.

He also bowls leg-spin at about the same speed as so-called “fast bowlers” such as Glenn McGrath and Shaun Pollock.
