Corey James Anderson
(New Zealand Cricketer)

Corey Anderson announced himself at the International stage by hammering Shahid Afridi’s fastest ODI century record, which was eventually broken by AB de Villiers. Unable to produce any more of such blitzy performances, the New Zealand all-rounder fizzled out soon. However, he is still one of the sought after names in T20 leagues across the globe.
