This is my selection of the most elegant left-handed batsmen of all in order of merit

1.David Gower
2.Alvin Kalicharan
3.Brian Lara
4.Gary Sobers
5.Neil Harvey
6.Saed Anwar
7.Arthur Morris
8.Yuvraj Singh
9.Sauarav Ganguly
10.Sannath Jayasuriya

I placed David Gower at the top as there was no one who surpassed his languid style resembling a ballad dancer.No left-hander negotiated or caressed the best bowling with such effortless ease reminding you of a mother putting a child to sleep or the touches of a painters brush.Grace in region sof divinty.

Alvin Kalicharan was elegance personified taking cricketing art to its zenith.A Rohan Kanhai the other way around who could tear the likes of Lille and Months with the fury of a tiger but still retain the grace of a musician.

Lara wast he ultimate epitome of creativity who posessed a sublime touch.

Gary Sobers had awesome power but still posessed feline grace.

Neil Harvey posessed classical composure in nay conditions.

Saed Anwar could launch a blitzkreig but still exude the grace of a pianist tapping the board.

Arthur Morris could tear any attack apart in any conditions but still exude a divine touch.

Yuvraj was simply a connoiseurs delight on his day and amongst the most attractive ODI batsmen of all.

Ganguly had shades of David Gower and on his day was a sight to behold.

Jayasuriya batted in the manner of circus acrobat taking attacks to shreds with the most attractive strokes.

I think it is Majid Khan while he's batting in front of a mirror.  


That has been proven beyond doubt when it comes to being the 'greatest'. But about being most 'elegant' there's still a bit of debate. Needless to say Mirrored Majid is right up there in any context under any category.
