The Top Ten

Sir Donald Bradman
Not just the best Australian cricketer, but the best cricket in the world ever. Was so far ahead of everybody else it wasn't funny, and had he played today with today's bats and today's pitches he would have been amazingly good. Wish I could have seen him play live.
He's the best batsman cricket has ever demanded... It is nearly impossible to think about Australia without Bradman.
He's the Greatest player and always will be!

2Adam Gilchrist
I love you Gilly! and I think you truly deserve the top position for your hardwork! I love you and I am crazy about you!
I love when he does that ball clapping thing when ever he catches the ball. He will be dearly missed and I really just want him back on the team


Gilly is the best wikkie keeper of all time!

3Ricky Ponting
Best pull shot I've ever seen. A superbly talented young cricketer, who went on to greatness. A truly great captain, with the highest respect from his team-mates. I've been watching cricket since the 1970's, and I am yet to see a better player than Punter.
It is good to be true legend like ponting he is the first best captain and very fantastic player even after a wicket he does never lose his wicket and he always try to work he fought with Sachin but no one else he himself handle the game without others need and takes fifty every match so the best player he is including captaincy
