5. Angelo Mathews
This Sri Lankan cricket is a very good all rounder; good hitter of a cricket ball and excellent fast arm bowling. He is though young but, his striking ability has given Sri Lanka a great asset of a bowler and his bowling in limited over cricket is just awesome.That's why Angelo Mathews is one of the top all rounders of cricket in world and he is in number five spot.
4. Andrew Flintoff
Who can forget this name after the Ashes series 2005, most entertaining tournament for me ever. And the star of that tournament was Andrew Flintoff who performed with both bat and the ball. His all round performance all made him man of the series. Andrew Flintoff has ability to become one of the best all rounders of all time but, injury problem made him back to remain at the number 4 spot of Top All Rounder.
3. Shane Watson
A truly Aussie star Shane Watson has always proved in international cricket when he had to prove. He was out from the team now and then due to his injury problem but, every time he was recovered his all round performance impressed the selector. Thought he changed his bowling action due to the recovery. He is still very effective in bowling and he is an excellent batsman, opener for Australia. His excellent all round performance makes him one of the best all rounders in cricket.
2. Shakib Al Hasan
Its not too long before, Bangladesh as approved for the test team but, Bangladesh has progressed very well in these day and one of the major contributor is Shakib Al Hasan. In many of matches won by Bangladesh, you will see the contribution of Shakib Al Hasan either with or bowl or with both. His terrific all round performance has enhanced the Bangladesh team and he is in the number 2 spot of top all rounders of all time.
1. Jacques Kallis
Who does not know the Jacques Kallis in modern cricket. He is one the best batsman in the cricket world. With the batting average about 55 and 45 in test cricket and ODI cricket respectively and with the bowling average of less than 32 runs, Jacques Kallis has been always very useful for South Africa. Not, only the he is all rounder with bowl and bat but, he is an excellent fielder as well.
