#2 Brett Lee



Brett Lee has always been a pioneer of fast bowling, as he has terrorized batsmen with his pace and accuracy. He picked up 310 wickets in Tests and 380 wickets in ODIs, at an impressive strike rate. He always remained a handy lower order batsman for Australia, capable of hitting the ball into the stands anytime.

When West Indies toured Australia in 2005 for a Test series, Brett Lee came into his own, depositing a ball outside the Gabba in Brisbane. It was a length ball in the slot, and Lee picked the bones out of it, sending it way outside the park. Later, the six distance was measured to be 143 metres, which has to be one of the biggest sixes hit in Test cricket ever.
