Steve Waugh

Australia's Most Admired Cricket Captain | Commentator | Author


Steve Waugh's massive contribution to Australia's last World Cup victory further entrenched his status as one of cricket's most resilient and effective players.  

Besides being one of Australia's most admired Captains, he has an enviable reputation as an author, writer and commentator. His work for Channel Nine and articles for publications such as the London Sunday Times have helped build his status as one of the game's shrewdest observers. The success of his six books made him Australia's best selling sports author.  

Steve became the 40th captain of the Australian Test team in February 1999, at a time when he was officially rated the 'World's Number one batsman'. 

He is a veteran of more that 100 Test matches, scorer of more than 7000 Test runs and 19 Test centuries, taker of 89 Test wickets and holder of many of Australia's one day cricket records. Steve has led the Australian Test team to their world record number of 16 consecutive wins.  

His charity work, especially his patronage of the Udayan Children's home in Calcutta - India, Camp Quality and Cerebral Palsy Association in Australia, has given him a worthy reputation well beyond the realms of sport.
