7. Aravinda de Silva
Deshabandu Pinnaduwage Aravinda de Silva ( born 17 October 1965) is a former Sri Lankan cricketer and former captain. He has also played in English County cricket. Widely considered as one of the best batsmen ever produced by Sri Lanka, He has held various posts in Sri Lanka Cricket after his retirement. De Silva helped Sri Lanka to win the 1996 Cricket World Cup and brought Sri Lanka from underdog status to present day form.
To date, Aravinda is the only player to make a hundred and take 3 or more wickets in a World cup final
It’s difficult to compare nowadays cricket with 90s nowadays cricketers get more matches than those days. For me aravinda de silva is the best we ever had, besides sri lanka only won one World Cup and who’s behind that glory.
He is the ONLY cricketer in the WORLD to have, VIRTUALLY, “single-handedly” won a World Cup for His Country – (records 107 n.o. + 3 wickets + 2 catches)
