Here I am in order of merit ranking the most artistic left-handed cricketers after Gary Sobers who simply was in another league.

 

Wasim Akram

David Gower

Brian Lara

Alan Davidson

Graeme Pollock

Vinoo Mankad

Bishen Bedi

Saed Anwar

Mitchell Johnson

Sannath Jayasuriya

Alvin Kalicharan

Saurav Ganguly

Wasim took wizardry with the ball to heights unreached with his magical reverse swing and variations.

 

Gower revealed grace of the divine in his strokes.

 

Lara dominated attacks taking creativity to regions unexplored.

 

Davidson even surpassed Wasim foe sheer pace and control,with subtle variations.

 

Mankad posessed all-round skill comparable to Sobers .A true great with the bat and ball like at Lords in 1951 when scoring 184 and taking 8 wickets.

 

Bedi was sheer poetry in action being more complete than any other left arm spinner.

 

Anwar posessed majestic grace even when tearing attacks to shreds.

 

Miltchelle Johnson could join the league of a Wasim Akram for sheer art and skill.Unplayable at his best who blended pace,movement and bounce in perfect proportion.

 

Jayasuriya gave a new defintion to opening in batting by attacking from the word go,resembling  a trapeze artist.

 

Kalicharan was like a left-handed Rohan Kanhai,taking domination to majestic heights.

 

Ganguly's batting posessed a charismatic or princely grace and was very resourceful with the ball.too.

 

Sangakaara revealed great composure in his batting.

 

Wasim Raja's strokes posessed a sublime touch of its own ,executing the most flowing drives.

 

Derek underwood had subtle variations in flight being unplayable in helpful conditions.
