3rd Test - Australia v West Indies - Day 5
A team where a superstar walked out one after the other

Talking about Test cricket, the mighty Australians are one of the most decorated teams to have played the game.

Australia's history tracks back to the 19th century and their rivalry with England is unparalleled. However, at the outset of the 21st century, the Australian Test team's ability was nothing short of remarkable.

They possessed players with a perfect blend of grit, aggression, technique and resilience. The likes of Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden displayed their dauntlessness to attack the bowlers at will, which helped them dictate the tempo of the game.

Almost every Australian batsman in the modern era is capable of repeatedly dealing crisp and colossal blows but let us take a look at the top 5 Australians with most Test sixes.


#5 David Warner - 54

Australia v New Zealand - 2nd Test: Day 1
Special batting abilities along with a special celebratory action sets Warner apart from the rest

Surely David Warner is not going to stop at 54. One of the most flamboyant and courageous openers to have graced the game in this decade, Warner's ability to churn out runs in quick time makes him one of the better openers in Test cricket.

The mathematics, which involves 6146 runs with a spectacular batting average of 48.77, combined with 21 centuries and 27 fifties in a mere 71 Test matches, makes Warner of one the most terrifying batsmen in Test cricket.

The pocket-sized dynamo can find the fence in any corner of the field with ease and boasts a total of 54 maximums to his name in the Test format of the game and it is bound to continue in the immediate future.
