Ricky Ponting in action in the cricket pitch

Matthew Hayden one of the best opener in Australian cricket team who already went for retirement from International Cricket. 
Mathew Hayden is one of the best batsman in world cricket, he made a debut in 1994. He is an aggressive player, along with Adam Gilchrist they made damages to many teams. He contributed in many innings for Australia's win. He played 102 tests and 161 Odi's.

Mathew Hayden is a very good cook too and an excellent personality in world cricket, he broke Brain Lara's record of 375 runs in test match. He just played 101 tests,but his name stands in top 10 for most 100 scorer's in Test cricket.

Ricky Thomas Ponting, the Captain of world number one Cricket Team smiling with his fellow Michael Clarke after match fees were doubled in May 2009.

Ponting, from a working-class background in northern Tasmania, would scoop an annual pay packet of more than $4 million including all his cricket-related income and sponsorship earnings.

But it is understood Ponting could expect to net about $1.1 million under his new base contract while Clarke also is set for a contract around the $1 million mark.

Brett Lee is a fast bowler, one of the fastest the game has known, and at his peak was capable of bowling at 161 km/h (100.05 mph). Lee's fastest recorded delivery to date is 160.8 km/h (99.9 mph) which he bowled in his first over on March 5, 2005 at Napier, New Zealand against Craig Cumming.

Lee ranked with Pakistani bowler Shoaib Akhtar as the fastest bowler in contemporary cricket during most of this decade. Akhtar's delivery at 161.3km/h (100.23mph) stands as the fastest recorded to date.

In February 2010, Lee retired from Test cricket in a bid to prolong his career in the limited-overs department. He had been repeatedly injured and had not played a Test since December 2008. He played 76 Tests taking 310 wickets. Australian fast bowling great Dennis Lillee paid tribute to him saying "Brett is going to go down as one of the great all-time express bowlers in the world ... 150-plus km/h puts a huge strain on the body and it can only take so much. For him to play 76 Tests and 300-odd wickets doing what he does is a credit to him."
