The Top Ten Best Australian Cricket Players of All Time

Sir Donald Bradman Sir Donald George Bradman often referred to as "The Don", was an Australian international cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time. Bradman's career Test batting average of 99.94 has been cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any major sport.

He is the best cricket player in the world I love him just saying australia best in the world

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.

His batting average was outrageous so that makes him the best ever batsman

He's the best batsman cricket has ever demanded... It is nearly impossible to think about Australia without Bradman.

Adam Gilchrist Adam Gilchrist is a retired international Australian batsman and wicketkeeper. He scored centuries 33 times in his career.

Aggressive and a demolition man. Not to forget the epic 'c Gilchrist b McGrath' for-loop

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

Not now become many years no one replacement Adam only one gilly in the world

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!

Shane Warne Shane Keith Warne is an Australian cricket commentator and former international cricketer who captained the Australian national team

Had almost everything in his arsenal. Legend has it Strauss hasn't recovered from that ball yet

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.

Shane Watson Shane Robert Watson is a former Australian international cricketer and a former captain, who played all formats of the game.

What is shane watson doing ahead of Hussey, Smith, Border and Hayden?

Everyone else should be before him like Steve Smith, clarke, ricky pointing.those men not watson

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

He is so danger player. I like it.

Ricky Ponting

If the ball is little short there's no way you're getting away with that. Undoubtedly one of the best batsmen of all time

Good player like him playing especially when he scores centuries

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

Glenn McGrath

Murderer of animals in the wild, and he isn't the best Australian cricketer.

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.

Steve Waugh

Leader and a disciplined man. Started the golden era of Australian cricket

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.

Loved cricketer for his humane sportsmanship offering immaculate entertainment

Steve Smith

Smith teams condition up defend He is Continue Best Batsmen for Australia

I love Watching Smith batting and He is every condition every situation for Team's Run score leading player

2010s. Weird yet a class act. Virat might overtake him in ODIs but there's no way he can beat him in test cricket.

Only love watching cricket game when Smith play. Simply the best cricket player. Stay humble, you are the Super Smith of Australia. God bless you

Michael 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

My best cricketer pup clarke I love you pup

Dean Jones

Dean jones is a no 1batsman when he play for Australia a match winning player

One of the most exciting batsmen to watch. Great footwork!

Love your batting and I don't know you

Best runner between wickets

The Contenders

Michael Hussey

The best left handed batsman I have ever seen. His passion to the game make me overwhelme. His drives through the covers makes me happy always. For me he is my Guru( Sir).

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.

He plays with style and freely

I like him very much he is the best

Allan 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.

Saviour of Australian cricket. Guided us into a golden era

No 4 in my Order of the greatest 12

Richie Benaud

Best all round cricketer on the field and off over a lifetime.

Best allroundg spinner I have seen. Very astute and brilliant strategist and captain. A great man manager.

Should be a lot higher, what an Icon

Merv Hughes

Good fun to watch back in the day

Funny to watch

Sexy schnurrbart

David Warner David Andrew Warner is an Australian cricketer and the current vice-captain of the Australian cricket team.

The 2nd best I reckon...his behaviour might have costed his actual place in the list but when u see his contribution towards whatever team he plays for,u can't deny that HE IS ONE OF THE BEST IN MODERN ERA

One of the best batmens in each format of the game a true australian legend

You would not be able to put in print of my opinion of this player. A disgrace to our country

The best gets awfully scary GO David WARNER!

Keith Miller

He's my father.

Glenn Maxwell Glenn James Maxwell is an Australian cricketer who plays One Day International and Twenty 20 International matches for Australia.

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.

He is the most important player for Australia

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.

I don't know what role he plays in Australia but in india he rocks I have just fallen in love with the way when he saves Australia during the hardest of times

Dennis 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!

The best bowler had 9 slips

Lillee should be higher

Mike Hussey

He is a real Mr. Cricket...
Best finisher ever in Australian team...

Hussey & Bevan two Great Finishers for Australia

Mitchell Johnson

That ashes season ended not just one Englishman's international career but 4. Fire, accuracy and pace. Loaded enough to knock your stumps down

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

It was a pleasure watching him bowl. Amazing Bowler!

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

Mitchell Starc Mitchell Aaron Starc, is an Australian cricketer who currently plays first-class cricket for the New South Wales Blues.

Serving the team in difficult time, not much pace support was around

He is the best fast bowler of the new generation

Super super bowler in the world my favourite bowler

My favourite bowler

Matthew 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.

Awesome Player in the cricket history

Victor Trumper

A great batsman who has unfortunately been lost in the shadow of Don Bradman but still shines through for those who love the game.

Trumper Bradman legends!

I have no idea how these starc and maxwell are better than the classic hard hitter, trumper.

One Batsman better than Braddy (Bradman

Arthur Morris
Paul Reiffel
Nathan Lyon

World's least Talented Off-Spinner

Best off spinner in the world

Best catch of all time

Worst Player of History!

Pat Cummins

His the best bowler in the world

That face when he bowls!

He is a cool bowler

Great players

Greg 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?

I think after Don Bradman he is best australian batsman

Aaron Finch

He smacks a lot

Best player in the world!

Have to work on the boll which is heating the stumps

Sweet batsmen

David Boon

Number 1 in all time time though debate raging over Hadden filling this spot... Boon has it so far!

Funny to watch while snapping
his bat

Mark Waugh

Deserved much better in career

He could be one of the top 5 batsman that world ever see

Awesome player.What is he doing below Watson and maxwell. Top player elegant and stylish.

Brilliant player how good was he

Justin Langer

I loved seeing him smash everything, providing a somewhat elegant counterpart to Matthew Hayden's "stand and deliver" approach.


Damien Martyn

One of the most elegant shot makers in test cricket and a shock to see him retire.

Peter Taylor
Viv Richards

He's not even Australian! Otherwise very good

Not australian

Top legends

Doug Walters

3 times century in a session of test match. Natural abundant talent, no net practice before test match

Tom Moody

post retirement also had continued as a coach, represents australia in the world

Jeff Thomson

No 8 in all time team... "bowlers would try to get you out! Tommo would try to kill you"!

The fastest bowler I have ever seen. At his top he was unplayable. Thompson played in an era that included the likes of Holding, Roberts, Croft and Lillee. Thompson was clearly faster than all of these great bowlers. Thompson would be my first bowling pick in any side.

Growing up watching Thomo one end Lillie the other gave you feeling that Australia was unbeatable. At a time when West Indies dominated the world it was the like of Thomo that brought us hope of wining and gave the Windies their greatest fear and that fear was very real and was their undoing, thanks Jeff.

Simon Katich
Janib Sultan

Because janib is one most good batsman in the world

Mark Taylor

Tubby has no 2.. locked and sorted in all time team

for building the team

Bruce Yardley
George Bailey

Whatever Nonsense is Here! This George Bailey shouldn't be here, he must come in 80th

Every people are know that.. George bailey neuter... he... is.a very good... exam of.. Australia.. cricket.. and also.. he is a very good player...I. wish... to George bailey... bright.. future... god bless... him...

Best player

Brad Hogg

He is a legend

Great spin bowler.Supported Warne Lee and McGrath and did it well

Craig McDermott

Zinc..pace..attitude.. loved this bloke

Ian Healy

Hey toptens, can I ask you to put this man's niece on the list? I couldn't help but notice that everyone on the site is male. I have nothing against males (I am one) but seriously, Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry are some of Australia finest cricketers so please add them to the list

Best wicket keeper

Healing powers

Damien Fleming

Very impressive death bowler.He had a short career but relished his chances and was always a decent fast bowler

Terry Alderman

Dreadful accident stopped his career. In would have hated to face him he bent the ball like a banana. If not for his injury, could well have been the best bowler in history.

James Faulkner

The best finisher and an incredible match saver

He is the most handsome and best all rounder

Most handsome allrounder is the most handsome cricketer, And that's mitchell marsh who os better than faulkner and is only australia

Is there anyone like him? My answer will be always no.Is there any handsome guy like him? Now also my answer is no.
