Meet the hardest working cricketers in the world!

January 06, 2016 09:37 IST

Players with the maximum work load in 2015. Plenty of surprises here!

Australia's Captain Steve Smith.

When speculation swirled after the Durban test that the magnificent A B de Villiers was planning to retire from Test cricket because he could not cope with the workload, we requested Rajneesh Gupta, the wizard with every cricket stat on his finger tips, to check out the workload of cricketers across all formats.

Rajneesh's findings are, as always, fascinating! 54 players and their workload:
