Toughest player in the history of sport? I'd have to research before mounting an argument.

Our greatest captain? Maybe.

A better batsman than Ponting? Sorry, no.

That's great, but Ponting was a better batsman.

I posted what my criteria was, theory on game was you can’t have a list without Bradman, he played 52 so 50 it was lol

Australia’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker Shane Warne has made his baggy green cap available for auction to raise funds for the Bushfire Appeal aiding those affected by the devastating fires across Australia.

The baggy green is a prized possession for any Test cricketer and the King of Spin’s is among the most famous in cricket. Warne wore the cap throughout his 145-match Test career for Australia in which he took 708 wickets.

The item will come with an autographed certificate of authenticity from Warne and 100 per cent of proceeds from the online auction will be donated to the Bushfire Appeal.

Ricky Ponting a better overall batsman than Steve Waugh
Steve Waugh was a star 1st innings batsman
However he often failed when Australia needed him in 4th innings chases

I didn’t weight first or second runs....almost like the chicken and the egg. Both have equal importance imo but you could make a case both ways for which is more important

Interesting system has some merit, BUT...

So players like Trumper, Jack Gregory (Australia's first most infamous ACL), Bill Ponsford (named as opener in our team of the 20th Century - yeah I forgot him too) , McCabe etc are no good despite lengthy careers chronologically if not in tests as they didn't play 50 tests?
Let that be a lesson to you Port, no one beats the Bays five times in a row in a GF and gets away with it!!!

Good point

I couldn’t be bothered counting years of each player lol but definitely see merit in years played.

Essentially I needed Bradman in and Labuschagne and Vogues out lol

Whilst you can’t put a figure on what it’s worth, what do people think it will go for?
Without looking at other memorabilia auctions & going simply on a “gut feel” I’ll say $120,000.

I hope Steve Waugh buys it haha

You'd hope the MCC or Cricket Australia might buy it & donate it to a museum in an ideal world.
If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

Over $200,000 for mine and hopefully donated back to him or to the CA museum.
