Cricket is a game where scoring truckloads of runs and taking a bucketful of wickets might give you a momentary fanbase. But to earn proper respect among the fans the cricketers have to conduct themselves in the most appropriate manner. Be it on the field or off the field, they will always have to stay true to the norms of gentleman’s game.

Unfortunately, in recent times there are individuals who have considered their talent as the license to behave as per their mood. Such cricketers might find temporary support from the cricketing community but they will never be adored by the audience for a longer period. The following cricketers are the ones who have always played the game in the right spirits and that’s why they have got the least number of ill-wishers.

Here is the list of best XI from the least hated cricketers

1) Aaron Finch

After the Sandpaper hue and cry, the Australian cricket needed a dose of calmness to regain their parity in the international circuit. That’s why the selectors trusted level-headed personalities like Justin Langer, Tim Paine and Aaron Finch as the right personnel to lead their redeeming procession.

With that said, the appointment of Finch as the ODI skipper didn’t go down well as the team lost 7 out of 8 games under his captaincy. Suddenly more dark clouds started hovering around the Australian cricket and that’s when Finch showed his resilience. Not only he guided the team to a comeback series victory in India but he also shaped the country’s series win against Pakistan in their den.

Thereafter he also received praise for his leadership qualities in the 2019 World Cup as the team reached semi-finals. With his recent success as skipper, now Finch is set to lead his country in a home World Cup. More importantly, he has rebranded the Yellow team’s style of play. Unlike other Australian skippers, Finch doesn’t believe in verbal volleys and that’s why he is one of the rare Aussie cricketers who is known for his behavioral ethics.
