#2 Mark Waugh

One of the most gifted batsmen of all time, Mark Waugh was a delight to watch when he was in full flow. His shot making was elegant, and it was a treat to the eyes as he took on various opposition bowlers with ease.

He was always in the shadow of his twin brother, Steve, but went down as one of Australia’s greats as well. He featured in 128 Tests and 244 ODIs and has a combined average of about 40. He was the second highest run-getter in the 1996 world cup with 484 runs in 7 matches at an average of 80.66 with 3 centuries to his name

Mark retired from international cricket in 2002 after which he continued to play domestic cricket for a couple of years. He is currently a national selector for the Australian cricket team and a commentator for Channel 10. He was seen commentating during the Big Bash League. 

#3 Ricky Ponting

Arguably one of the best captains in world cricket ever, and one of the best batsmen to play for Australia, Ricky Ponting was just a youngster back when Renshaw was born. He had made his debut just one year before the 1996 world cup, and due to some impressive performances with the bat, found himself in the playing XI for all the matches in the tournament.

Ponting led Australia to two consecutive world cup wins in 2003 and 2007 and was the captain of the side during the “golden era” of Australian cricket.

He played a total of over 500 matches in both the formats combined and averaged above 50 in Tests and above 40 in ODIs. He retired from international cricket in 2012 and is currently an active cricket commentator along with other former teammates of his. He was also the coach of the Mumbai Indians franchise in the IPL.
