    I love Ricky Ponting because of his consistent performance and sheer batting style. I like Shahid Afridi too owing to his exciting way of playing.

    for the best hitter i would 100% say Shahid Afridi. He has hit the most ODI sixes and is a great captain aswell as he always is in constant communication with his bowlers to make sure they bowl well. BOOM BOOM AFRIDI!
