Default Top 10 cricket players who changed how you perceive world?

Since I have no friends, I wasn't tagged so I plan to take initiative:

1. Ashraful for his Windies T20 victory that is making me fill with mawkish sentiment
2. Syed Rasel for being the first and only facebook friend to add me back on social media
3. Nazza! - for his brutality against Pakistan of 2 consecutive sixes
4. Dolar Mahmud- for his one hit wonder giving me hope to shine in life
5. Paul Gogga, you can stargaze AND bowl at the same time; yup he made it possible
6. Steven Davies for coming out of his closet
7. Varun Aaron- for helping me to use google efficiently to look him up
8. Brian Macmillan- when singing Christiana Milian in shower and saying that one must be VERYYY SECURE to do so
9. The Rajib is
10. Mahmuddulah for his violent innings at the Caribbean warm up

I nominate reverse swing, Nightwolf and roman.

Default I don't care. I love it.

Rana. Inspire even when one is not present.
Murali. You can take a wicket without bowling. The eyes of a Lion.
David Boon, Ranatunga, De Silva. One can be fat yet quick as a Kangaroo or a Lion and keep going like an energizer bunny. (Tamim has hope)
Attapatu. Failure is the pillar of success.
Chris Gayle. Viv Richards 2.0. I thought it was never possible to upgrade Viv.
Shoaib Akthar. A person with no humble bones. (Confidence and Arrogance is two different thing)
Sobers. Aliens do exists.
Shakib Al Hasan. Person larger than the team. Hand him the keys already and move away!! Let us all ride the wave to the promise land.

SAkib : a man who can carry the burden of a nation( that also bangladesh)

AB De villiers: killers can be humble too

Amla : extra ordinary player + extra ordinary behavior = extra ordinary human being

Steyn : he can make his haters(me) become his fans with his performance

Ziah : bhaat khayao shutham dehi ebong porisromi howa jay

Sirji : you can still be in the game without being in the game.
you can still get public support despite of being corrupted ( by shikarokti) although you are not into politics.

Ranatunga-- Fitness whaaaat! !

Amla--determination

Shakib--If you are famous, good at what you do, then you must know how to do "ji hujur ji hujur" if you live in Bangladesh

Warne: the symbol of toughess. Career full of controvercies on and off the field ie. taking money from bookies, smoking, getting banned for taking illegal substance, getting caught by wife for cheating, divorce, getting back together then divorce again, front page naked photo with hookers, clashes with Buchanon, Waugh, Ponting and so on. But his on field performance was never affected. He kept developing as a cricketer right till the end. We see its proof in his captaincy of t20 teams. Also one of the rarest players to be fitter in retirement than playing life.
