Top 10 Best Australian Cricket Players of All Time

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.

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.

With so few games played, Don had scored may centuries. 'The Don,' as he was often referred to, had an average of 99.94! The best average ever! He only needed 7 more runs to have made an average of 100, no wonder this fantastic Batter was knighted, good on you buddy!

No' 2 you have to be kidding. No batsman and I mean NO batsman comes close, Gilchrist was a pleasure to watch I admit but The Don didn't bat much slower. He's feats are unmatched in any sport..Jordan and Nicklaus included. Only Lindrum comes close to dominating his chosen sport

Are you kidding me? Bradman is the best cricketer in the world and he is only number 3? This website is definitely wrong. I think bradman is better than anyone in the history of cricket and I'm not even from Australia. I'm from India

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

He is the best wicket keeper in the world. Nobody is better than him. I love the way he claps after taking a catch. He is one of the best openers in the world. I love him. He should be Number 1.

A truly amazing cricketer and a character that is flamboyant as any human being that's played the game and could do anything with bat or gloves.

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

Greatest wicketkeeper/bats, en I have ever seen in my life and he was certainly someone who was capable of smashing a ball for six. You will be missed Gilly.

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

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.

He had a knack of turning matches in Australia's favor that were well beyond their reach. Probably one of the greatest cricketing brains ever.

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

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

He is number 1 player of australia yet and he scored 176 in last test of ashes I love him so much...

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

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

I don't think shane watson should be ahead of andrew symonds!

5 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.

Best hooker and puller I have ever seen in my life. It was a privilege watching him play because he was a sensational batsmen and would try his guts out for every single game he played in his career.

Best hooker and puller in cricket history. An amazing captain for Australia and an absolute privilege to watch him in action.

Only the finest and calmest cricketer I've seen. Bless you mate. Although I'm.a pom long live with Australia. Cheers mate xx

6 Glenn McGrath

A fantastic bowler and without a doubt the most accurate, it was a real shame to see him retire from cricket in 2007 but he will go down as a legend of the game.

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.

Without a doubt the most accurate fast bowler that has ever played the game and it was a real privilege to watch him in action.

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

7 Steve Waugh

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.

He was simply amazing and was without a doubt the most gutsiest and it was a privilege to watch him make that famous hundred in 2003.

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.

The most gutsy player that ever played the game if Shane warne had been more supportive waughs acheavments would be even more impressive?

8 Steve Smith

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!

Steve smith is a batsman who handles the team in the time of need. I am an indian but use to support australian cricket after indian cricket board. I also want to comment on that person
who told Steve smith cries like a baby. He cries because he accepted his mistake...And you ownself is a baby who use to change diper all time.

Bad handling just to make someone feel smart... Come back and enchant us again... Steve. Show them what idiots they were
We need you... Miss your brilliance and your good self.. What a lot of rubbish to sit you on the sidelines... You are great.

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.

9 Michael Hussey

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.

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 truly deserved the nickname Mr. Cricket because he was amazing to watch and would always give his all when playing for Australia.

No 6 in the all time team though debate still raging... Clarke or Hussey... that is the Q!

10 Michael Clarke

He's a great tactical captain, and has become the first player to ever score 4 double centuries in a calendar year.

My best cricketer is michael clarke he is good captain. He is clever. He have big telant I love him

He is the reason why Australian test cricket is still alive. Great player

Best captain ever! He has great skills!

The Contenders
11 Dean Jones

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

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

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.

Didn't see him bat.

13 Richie Benaud

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

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

14 Merv Hughes

Funny to watch

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

This guy is a legend. 27 and tn years to go we hope. He will eclipse Bradman I hope. Dave is the writing calls man. Not a Patrick like Bradman which make s it all the better. Not a part of the establishment in any way

He is the most destructive opener for the Australia and he he plays the all formats so well. according to tom moody he is the best opener in the world

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

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

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.

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 best player in cricket history. You know he is a big hitter, Keep it up maxwell.

That one match against Sri Lanka, and he's become one of my favorite cricketers.

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!

Lillee should be higher

19 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.

20 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 Batsman with "X" Factor to smash sixes all over the stadium. Good Batting. One of the best Batsmen!

It was a pleasure watching him bowl. Amazing Bowler!

A key bowler in the game

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

An amazing bowler with consistent pace over 145, who can rattle the best batsman in the world with one at his neck or toes.

Best fast bowler in the world!

He is my favourite bowler ever keep it up starc take wickets for Australia

My favourite bowler

22 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.

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

A maverick, stylish and definitely the best batsman of Australia after Sir Don

23 Arthur Morris
24 Paul Reiffel
25 Nathan Lyon

Best catch of all time

He's a good bowler
