2 Sir Donald Bradman 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.

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!

His best there ever was & will be best even know his R.I.P!

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

King of captain

4 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.

Why not watch his bowl of the centery

5 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.

Best fast bowler in history till date.

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.

Loved cricketer for his humane sportsmanship offering immaculate entertainment

11 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

Will be the #1 player in the world

12 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.

Excellent batting and all time favourite

Best runner between wickets

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!

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

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

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

15 Richie Benaud
16 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

17 Merv Hughes

Sexy schnurrbart

18 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

He is the most important player for Australia

21 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

22 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!

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

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?

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

46 Mark Taylor

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

47 Craig McDermott

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

48 Terry Alderman
49 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.

50 George Bailey

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