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

Gilly is the best wikkie keeper of all time!

He is One of the best batsman in cricket history

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!

He is the best batsman to ever play for Australia

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

Best hooker and puller I have ever seen in my life. It was a privilege watching him play because he was a sensational batsmen and would try his guts out for every single game he played in his career.

Just greatest cricketer of all time, no words to explain

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.

Great player! I learned leg spin all because of him

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

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

8Shane 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...

Best all rounder

9Steve Waugh

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.

He was simply amazing and was without a doubt the most gutsiest and it was a privilege to watch him make that famous hundred in 2003.

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?

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.

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!

13Glenn Maxwell

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.

My favourite and the best match winner

Future hope for Australian team

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

14Mitchell Starc

Super super bowler in the world my favourite bowler

15Greg 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.

16Steve 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.

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

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