Top 10 Best Australian Cricket Players of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Adam Gilchrist

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 - munkee_linc97

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!

Gilly is the best wikkie keeper of all time!

Totally awesome he isn't the best in aus but the second best but not ahead of the don bradman and just ahead of Ricky Warne and McGrath

2Sir 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!

This man is world best batsman

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

Punter is the most loving and highly cricketer

The best go tassie

4Glenn McGrath

Superb fast bowler. Accuracy and bounce made him a wicket taker in all conditions.

He has the most wickets for a fast bowler.I do not many better cricketers than him.

A magnificent fast bowler and without a doubt the most accurate and it was sad to see him retire in 2007 because he was sensational.

He is undoubtedly the best seamer Australia has ever got!

5Shane Warne

Greatest player and cricket mind never to be full time captain. CA should be ashamed that they put his character above his cricket ability and brains

Shane is so cool that he could do 10 spinners in a row! I know because he is awesome. LIKE TOTALLY!

When it was Warne's turn to bowl he always went to another level and I felt really happy that he played for Australia and a true champion of our game.

Should be #2 behind bradman - micahisthebest

6Shane Watson

He is the best crickter and a all rounder in the whole world. I can't express my feelings in words.

No not at all there are so many better Aussies than Shane Watson!

He is number 1 player of australia yet and he scored 176 in last test of ashes I love him so much...

Shane Watson is the best cricketer ever!

7Michael Hussey

He is the best batsmen ever. Deserves to be orange cap in season 6. I love him a lot and wish Australia best of luck for the next champions trophy which India will win. All the best India.

I like him very much he is the best

A very firm striker of the ball and had a particularly good technique.

Good Technique

8Michael Clarke

My best cricketer is michael clarke he is good captain. He is clever. He have big telant I love him

He's a great tactical captain, and has become the first player to ever score 4 double centuries in a calendar year.

Should be in politics not as a cricketer working along side with kevin Rudd

One of the best captains Australia has got

9Allan Border

An inspirational leader of the Australian cricketer and the most consistent without a shadow of doubt.

An inspirational leader for Australian cricket and he was awesome to watch.

10Steve Waugh

He is great no words awesome man

He was a wonderful cricket player and it was simply amazing watching him when he made his famous test century. Overall the greatest Australian cricketer ever to play our game.

Great player, always dug Australia out of a hole. Great sportsman and idol for young players. This guy should be up around 2 or 3.

Really? Clarke and Watson above Steve Waugh?

The Contenders

11Matthew Hayden

I thinks that Matthew Hayden is Best of all. Hats off to Sir Matthew. I love his attitude towards his nation. He was a pillar of Australian Cricket team.

He is absolute boss by scoring over 400 and getting a technique to play against spin after having troubles!

A tremendous striker of the ball, very strong and formed a sensational partnership with Justin Langer so a very good cricketer.

He is very good player of cricket history of all time

12Dennis Lillee

Incredible bowler, he had pace, consistency and the ability to hit the right lengths to get the best out. Should be higher on the list.

Very surprised Lillee not higher up, what a game changer! Would have rated him higher than Watson!

13Steve Smith

He is one of the finest players of Australia and has a lot of skills. Many legends across the world are of the opinion that he is a very talented young player who makes very less mistakes.

He is the best and the very good looking player. I like him when he play good shots. Smith you should be 3 or 4 player not 14

I like him. He is my best cricketer player of Australia. WHEN I OPEN television I first see star sports of Australia cricket. He play best in IPL too in India

He is best player as well as good looking cute player he should be in 1 rank

14Glenn Maxwell

Some say he's not the best, and sometimes question why he plays cricket, but to me, Glenn Maxwell is more than a cricketer, he is a ENTERTAINER.

Inconsistent at best, he might be a big hitter but without discipline he won't go very far. Blasting a quick 30 doesn't help the team out, he needs to slow his game out or he'll be stuck playing ODI's for the rest of his career.

Who is this guy? How many test centuries does he have

Go to top maxi

15Mitchell Starc

He is the best fast bowler of the new generation

Super super bowler in the world my favourite bowler

Help Me! How is he before Johnson, Chappell, Trumper and A. Morris

V12 Comments
16Mitchell Johnson

A bowler with "X" Factor, and that is coming from an Englishman

You Idiots are gonna talk about his bowling always more than his batting, and one day, you'll make him just a bowler!

I think he will become a woman in the future (like bruce jenner)

It was a pleasure watching him bowl. Amazing Bowler!

17Greg Chappell

In what universe would Shane watson and Glenn maxwell be ranked this high? This list's an absolute joke, what's the average age of voters? Like 12? I'd like to see some of these modern players face the West Indies of the 70's and 80's with very little protective equipment. Before you vote/comment do some research...

He was very much the stylist, very upright, always would build his innings on the Greg Chappell V and had an excellent technique, simply amazing.

Yeh' can't understand this one! Is anyone over 20 voting?

Chappell should be higher

19David Warner

The best gets awfully scary GO David WARNER!

A great batsman to watch, every time I see him bat I am amazed. Go Warner!

He is the best batsman of all time and I love him

Nonsense! Warner? 19? Before Shaun Marsh? No Way!
