10 best players of all time from Western Austalia
9 Stuart MacGill
Born in Perth in Western Australia, Stuart MacGill was supremely unlucky for having been the contemporary of the greatest spinner to have played the game, Shane Warne. At a time when Australia fielded 3 fast bowlers, MacGill could only play 44 Tests in a career spanning 10 years.
However, his talent has never been in doubt and after having played for Western Australia, he switched to New South Wales, before finally breaking into the Australian team in 1998. MacGill had the ability to turn the ball appreciably on any pitch and that fetched him 208 Test scalps in only 44 Tests at an impressive average of just over 29.02.
Had he played in a different era, he would definitely have played more but there is no doubt that MacGill is one of the finest cricketers to have emerged from Western Australia.
