If there were some ISO standards for quality in modern cricket, being an Australian might just get you through the initial round of scrutinization. It is how it is. When the dust settles and all things that matter on the pitch is over, the bottom line more or less always tends favour the Aussies.Although a large part of the cricketing fraternity hate the Aussies for various reasons, there is one thing we can’t deny. They have literally reshaped the face of modern cricket. There can be no arguments that Aussies are the titans of this age of cricket. From the initial days of Steve Waugh to the absolute domination of Ricky Ponting’s men and the re-resurgence under Michael Clarke, the men from down under have ruled the game with absolute might. Their influence on all facets of the game remain unparalleled and IPL stands as another witness to their cricketing abilities.While there have been a few Callum Fergusons and Ashley Noffkes along the way, when taken everything into account, barring India, players from no other country has influenced the stakes in this competition as much as the Aussies have done.Today, we look at 10 of the best players from Australia to have graced the stage at the mecca of T20 cricket that is the IPL.
#10 Ryan Harris
Ryan Harris is probably the most criminally underrated player ever to have played in the IPL. The man from the Southern hemisphere was one of the fiercest bowlers the league has ever seen who hit the bat hard and had the knack of picking up early and timely wickets.
His total haul of 45 wickets in 37 games, while striking at a rate of 18.48 puts in the elite league. Whilst his teams i.e Deccan Chargers and Kings XI Punjab struggled for the majority of the time he was with them, Harris kept on delivering the goods like a non-stop engine.
