I thought we would try to come up with a consensus of who plays the best shot (players that you have watched)
Off Drive: Hayden - In his heyday plonked the front foot down and murdered the pacers.
Inside-Out Drive: Laxman - Has the perfect technique for this shot and did successfully against Warne and MacGill
Cover Drive: Plenty of candidates for this one but I'd have to say Vaughan, aesthetically pleasing and played it numerous times against Aus in CT 2003 IIRC.
Square Drive: Theres no better sight in cricket than Lara's flashing blade meeting a wide overpitched delivery
Cut Shot: Jayasuriya - No one else can time it and hit it further than he can
Late Cut: Martyn, comes naturally to him since he plays the ball so late
Ramp Shot/Shot Over Keepers Head: Ryan Campbell, probably coz no one else plays this shot
Leg Glance: Umm.. Lehmann i seemed to recall he could it especially well when theres no fine leg
Pull/Hook Shot: Ponting - Can despatch it any where from midwicket to deep-backward square for 4
Square Leg Flick: Mark Waugh - he does it so elegantly and effortlessly
Slog Over Cow Corner: Afridi - when it comes off, (hardly) its a sight to behold
Drive Through Midwicket: Pietersen - when he drags the ball from outside off stump
On - Drive: Sachin - even his defensive onside pushes hit the boundary such is the timing of the great man
