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.

Amazing player

The description of him literally says his average 99.94 is the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any 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.

3 Ricky Ponting

King of captain

More runs than bradman in career but more games

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.

Great Leader and Exceptional Batsman

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

12 Matthew Hayden

Excellent batting and all time favourite

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.

22 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

One Batsman better than Braddy (Bradman
