The goal of any player is to contribute better to his team and win matches. While the batsmen want to score big, the bowlers want to play their big role in the match by dismissing more and more players of the opposition team with their excellent bowling.

But this has happened in the history of cricket. Today we tell you about 3 such players who, while performing brilliantly with their batting and bowling, single-handedly won the match for their team.
