2 Sir Donald Bradman Sir Donald Bradman Sir Donald George "Don" Bradman, AC, often referred to as "The Don", was an Australian cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time.

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!

KILLER BATSMAN

3 Ricky 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 champion player

4 Glenn 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.

Amazing baller in all conditions and always targeted the best batsmen and dismissed them.

5 Shane 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.

Biggest cricketer of all time if all the aussie players faced of he would win

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

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.

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

My favourite cricketer. my role model. genuine player.strongest player.

9 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.

No 4 in my Order of the greatest 12

No 4 in the all time team

10 Steve 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.

Best player ever next to Bradman always humble never let his records go to his head kept his team the same way not many losses with him as captain

The Contenders

11 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.

He is very good player of cricket history of all time

12 Steve 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.

Because he is the best captain for Australia and lots of kids look up to him, and also because he is a very competitive player. Many legends across the world are of the opinion that he is a very talented young player who makes very less mistakes. He is also a highly skilled player and is a very popular person in the cricket industry!

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

He is my favourite cricketer! I have never seen such a player..who is so skilled..so good looking! ❣️ Hey, Top Tens..can you please give meSmith's no.? I want to meet him once..just a pic and a small conversation..please pleaseπŸ™πŸ» Coming back to words, he is a brilliant player and would have not been banned for just a small mistake.

13 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

Only boss

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

The best gets awfully scary GO David WARNER!

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

I like this guy because he is a standard player he can play in any country and can able to score more runs

He is amazing

15 Glenn Maxwell 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.

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

Best T20I player in the world

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

17 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

18 Mitchell 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!

It was a pleasure watching him bowl. Amazing Bowler!

Greatest handlebar of all time

19 Victor Trumper

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

One Batsman better than Braddy (Bradman

Comments aside...
GREATEST BATSMAN EVER... EVEN BELIEVED AS BETTER THAN THE DON, WHATEVER IT IS... DON IS BETTER THAN HIM, AND TRUMPER TOPS AS 2ND HAHA

OOH MY
GOODD! HELP ME! TRUMPER IS HERE? HE IS ALMOST AS GOOD AS BRADMAN! HAAHA!

20 Arthur Morris
21 Justin Langer

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

22 Andrew Symonds

Yep makes up the team at 12th

A fairly good all rounder

My favourite player.. most exciting batsmen, best fielder I've seen, Can even bowl well in variety. Just so talented.

Whoa, can bowl at any pace even bowl spin at Indian tracks, could bat at any order, hardly ever he got failed in batting,

The only one ever born who can be compared with Jhonty Rhodes in fielding.

What else do you need in single player?

33 Tom Moody
34 Aaron Finch

He smacks a lot

My. Best carkatR aaron cinch

35 Janib Sultan

Because janib is one most good batsman in the world

36 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.

37 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.
