Corey James Anderson (36 balls) – The New Zealand all rounder almost suddenly came into limelight after this blitz of 131 runs and remained unbeaten after playing only 36 deliveries, thrashing fourteen boundaries and six over boundaries. It was the first date of the year 2014 that Anderson mercilessly thrashed the Caribbean bowlers in the 3rd One Day International series. After Jesse Ryder opened beautifully by scoring a century, the Windies were already at the back foot, but the main trouble seemed to happen right after the tail ender Corey Anderson, who was nobody but a newbie in the World of Cricket, arrived at the crease and started to thrash apart anything that came his way, thereby leaving the spectators mesmerized.
Jesse Ryder (46 balls) – Jessie Daniel Ryder, the controversial opener of the Kiwis is another batsman with strokes much comparable to that of a Smithsonian. It was the same match in which Corey Anderson blasted his way to century that this healthy chubby fellow batsman made his innings decorative by scoring a score of 104 runs from 46 balls with twelve fours and five over boundaries.
Craig McMillan (67 balls) – Craig Douglas McMillan was arguably the best middle order batsman New Zealand has ever had. With prowess in his batting arena, he was equally proven of his fielding and spinning skills. The 3rd One Day International of the Chappell Hadlee Trophy marked its perimeter of excitement as the match rolled down to the very last over and the spectators saw the Kiwis taking away their share by chasing down a huge total of 346 runs and that too against their fellow neighbour Australia. Craig McMillan scored 117 runs from 67 balls, hitting five over boundaries and thirteen boundaries.
Kane Williamson (69 balls) – Kane Stuart Williamson is the middle order batsman for the Kiwis. It was in the 3rd One Day International between New Zealand and Zimbabwe that Kane marked with his accelerating century of 100 runs from just 69 deliveries and remained unbeaten out of eleven boundaries and one over boundary.
Ross Taylor (70 balls) – Luteru Ross Poutoa Lote Taylor of New Zealand scored his best feat till date of 102 runs from 70 balls, hitting thirteen fours and two sixes in the New Zealand vs. Pakistan 2nd ODI.
