We are almost approaching the end of this year, and like all the years, 2017 was a memorable one for several cricketers who produced some brilliant performances over the course of this calendar year to win recognition for their country. This year we have seen some fantastic display of batting in Test cricket be it patiently building an innings and batting for long hours to hammering the balls and scoring quick runs.

Hitting sixes on a consistent basis in an unusual scene in Test cricket; however, batsmen have changed their techniques over the years and are not afraid to step out in the longer formats.

Australia’s Mitchell Starc is a surprise inclusion in this list as he hardly gets to bat in a tight packed Aussie batting line-up. He features fifth on the list with an equal number of sixes as Pandya but from 6 matches.
