2017 has been a wonderful year for the cricketing fans from all over the globe as nations battled hard for pride and glory. We have seen them all from great knocks to great spells from batters and bowlers which provided the right kind of entertainment for us.




As far as the batters are concerned the Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Australian skipper Steve Smith dominated throughout. Both the players were outstanding and ended with phenomenal figures at the end of 2017 which portrays their class and marks them as the bests of this generation. Steve Smith enjoyed a good year as far a his captaincy is concerned as Australia completely routed England to take back the Ashes urn. Similarly, Kohli’s leadership must also be praised as India enjoyed a spectacular test run under the Delhi boy.
