5. Suresh Raina:
Indian cricketer Suresh Raina has played several memorable knocks for India at crunch situations.

In the T20 World Cup 2010, Raina was the highest scorer for India and overall fifth-highest. He scored 219 runs in five matches at an average of 43.80 with the striking rate of 146.00.
