#4. Rahul Dravid- Square Cut


"The Wall" as the fans call him would stand tall on the 22 yards pitch in spite of dangerous bowling attack or worsening overcast condition. Dravid had the best defence in his era along with a good variety of shots. His square cut was one of the most lovely sights in a test match.

#5. Hashim Amla- TipToe Shot


Hashim Amla is an elegant stroke-maker with amazing defensive skills. He plays fascinating shots being on his toes, be it cut, back foot punch, or a jab. This is very difficult shot to play off a pacer but Amla masters it and makes it look so easy.

#.6 Virender Sehwag- Upper Cut

"Virender Sehwag gave me nightmares," said Dale Steyn. Viru Paaji could damage any bowling attack courtesy of his hitting ability. Though he had a vast range of strokes, uppercut was his weapon against deadly bouncers. Upper-Cut was introduced by his fellow opener Sachin Tendulkar, but Viru left his impression on it.

#7. Virat Kohli- Cover Drive


Virat Kohli has risen to the lists of the great batsmen in his decade-long career. Indian skipper's cover drive is the most beautiful sight in modern-day cricket. The way he executes it, his head goes in the line of the ball, the body follows, and the ball finds the middle of the bat. His other note-worthy shots are a wristy flick, inside-out.
