In this day and age, when power hitting has become the skill that almost every batsman aspires for, timing still remains the most important aspect of attacking batsmanship. However, very few batsmen have the gift of timing the ball well without much of an effort and that is what makes them special. A light push can run away to the boundary and the fielding team is often left dumbfounded.

Even now there are plenty of batsmen who are excellent timers of the ball and can hit scorching strokes with the minimal of effort. More often than not, the gift of timing also allows them to clear the ground easily and here is a look at the 10 batsmen who are the best timers of the ball at the moment.

Australia v India - Game 2
Shaun Marsh

Australian batsman Shaun Marsh may be a lot of things but as far as the gift of timing is concerned, he is one of the very best in the world at the moment. When he first came to the international stage, it was his gift of timing that caught everyone's eye and the relative ease with which he could time his strokes.

Marsh can, of course, hit big as well but the ease with which he can send deliveries scurrying to the boundary with a gentle push is without a doubt his greatest gift and makes him one of the best timers of the ball in world cricket at the moment.
