The Top Ten

1 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

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

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.

World recognized, not only as the best ever cricket player in the world, but as the worlds greatest ever sportsman periiod. Twice as good as his nearest competitor under extremely harsh conditions. Even the infamous, deadly BODYLINE

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

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

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!

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

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.

The greatest leg spinner in the history of the game without a shadow of doubt and was always able to stay a step ahead of the batsmen facing him.

4 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 player in the entire world and He Play with his heart and he is very sincere player whenever he play everywhere

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

5 Ricky Ponting

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

Punter is the most loving and highly cricketer

6 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.

7 Steve Waugh

Loved cricketer for his humane sportsmanship offering immaculate entertainment

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.

8 Steve Smith

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

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

He is the best test batsman, always hungers for runs... Best captain as well.

CHEATED and then cried like a baby in public after he was caught.

9 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

10 Dean Jones

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

Love your batting and I don't know you

Great man to have in limited over cricket

Best runner between wickets

The Contenders

11 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

12 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

13 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

14 Merv Hughes

Good fun to watch back in the day

Funny to watch

Sexy schnurrbart

15 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!

16 Keith Miller

He's my father.

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

I think that maxwell is good player and make Oak and Two captain 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

18 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

19 Mike Hussey

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

20 Mitchell Johnson

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!

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

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

He is the best fast bowler of the new generation

Super super bowler in the world my favourite bowler

My favourite bowler

I think so he is breaks all balling record... He is my favorite

22 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

23 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

24 Arthur Morris
25 Paul Reiffel
26 Nathan Lyon

World's least Talented Off-Spinner

Best off spinner in the world

Best catch of all time

Worst Player of History!

27 Pat Cummins

His the best bowler in the world

That face when he bowls!

He is a cool bowler

Great players

28 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

29 Aaron Finch

He smacks a lot

Best player in the world!

Have to work on the boll which is heating the stumps

Sweet batsmen

30 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

31 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
.

32 Justin Langer

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

Great

33 Damien Martyn

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

34 Peter Taylor
35 Doug Walters

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

36 Viv Richards

He's not even Australian! Otherwise very good

37 Simon Katich
38 Tom Moody
39 Janib Sultan

Because janib is one most good batsman in the world

40 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.

41 Bruce Yardley
42 Brad Hogg

He is a legend

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

43 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

44 Damien Fleming

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

45 Mark Taylor

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

46 Craig McDermott

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

47 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.

48 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.

49 Doug Bollinger
50 Ian Healy

Best wicket keeper

Healing powers
