    Waugh for me, but it's not a big margin.

    Allan Border by quite a margin.(Sorry I thought the question asked was about their captaincy skills)

    As a batsman I rate S.Waugh higher.

    Saw just about both these guys' entire careers.

    Steve Waugh - not by a massive amount, but comfortably enough. Had quite a slow start (which really hurt his average), but was as well-equipped to slaughter and attack as he was to frustrate and defend. Possessed perhaps the most amazing self-discipline I've ever seen in a batsman and he had that extra bit of frosty intimidation at the crease.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    As a batsman Steve wins, but Border was one great captain.

    border for me, i have seen both of them fairly extensively and border was clearly the better batsman while being as gritty and tenacious as waugh....both were exceptional players...
