    I was refering to Katich's bowling so far this year only. Who knows, he might continue to bowl well or he could very well not perform again with his bowling. Only time will tell.

    As with Bevan, most know that he is not in the Australian Test side due to perceptions of not being able to cope with the short ball whilst batting. Even nowdays being only in the Australian ODI side, Bevan hasn't been able to bowl as of late due to problems with his sholder (I think its the sholder or some other problem that has restricted his bowling).

    Yeah, I was refering to ODI's. I just wondered why he never bowled, because he used to be a really good part-timer.

    2004 Australian Test Match Rankings (as of Australia vs. India 4th Test at the the Sydney Cricket Ground, 2-7 January)

    Batting
    No.1: Simon Katich - 386@386.00 points per innings
    No.2: Justin Langer - 252@126.00
    No.3: Mathew Hayden - 147@73.50
    No.4: Steve Waugh - 124@62.00
    No.5: Ricky Ponting - 46@23.00
    No.6: Jason Gillespie - 35@35.00

    No.11: Brett Lee - 0@0.00


    Bowling
    No.1: Jason Gillespie - 118@59.00
    No.2: Brett Lee - 118@59.00
    No.3: Nathan Bracken - 34@17.00

    No.5: Damien Martyn - 17@17.00
    No.6: Steve Waugh - 0@0.00
    No.7: Simon Katich - 0@0.00

    Well a new year has arrived and whilst it has been only Australia's first test match they have played this year, Simon Katich had performed very well with the bat. Provided he can nail a more permament spot in the test side, he could rank highly this year.

    I would like to say farewell to Steve Waugh. He has been a champion, great captain and a legend in both forms of the game. He also has set the standard in which Test cricket should be played through his attacking captaincy. He has made the side attack when they bat, the side scores reguarly at 4 RPO or more. Great to watch Also with the bowling, the side is always looking to get a wicket off the first ball of the game. Plus under Waugh's captaincy, the draw is consigned to the recycle bin, which therefore creates results. That can only be good for cricket in general.
    He has changed not only Australian cricket, but world cricket for the better. He will start to side from his No.4 batting ranking, but he wont be forgotten. His legacy will live on. Thanks for the memories Steve Waugh

    I'm sorry but those rankings are seriously flawed if you rank Brett Lee the same as Jason Gillespie on THAT performance.

    luckyeddie, whilst Brett Lee had a bad game overall (shocking economy, no balls etc), he was Australia's leading wicket taker in the first innings (four wickets) which helped him to No.2. After all as a bowler you are there to take wickets and Lee was rewarded for that. Gillespie was economical (3 RPO) in the first innings and he took four wickets (three in the 1st innings, one in the 2nd innings) which helped his points score. Gillespie is ahead of Lee due to his better economy rate (tie breaker).

    My rankings are not 100% but I still think that they are good. Your opinions are very much welcome

    What a innings from Adam Gilchrist, 172 off only 126 balls :wow:
    It was one of the great ODI innings. Very exciting to watch
    Good contributions from Hayden & Martyn also. Though as the rankings show, that Gilchrist's 172 (126) means that he has a huge lead in the Australian ODI Batting Rankings. Gilchrist leads Symonds and Clarke by a whopping 267 points.

    A great century by Mathew Hayden has seen him jump to number two in the Australian ODI batting rankings, though it wasn't enough to stop a Indian victory. VVS Laxman hit a well made 103* with good support from Sachin Tendulkar who scored 86 whilst injured & Rahul Dravid hitting a good 74. Also India's bowlers did well, in particular Balaji & Pathan. Ricky Ponting is at No.7 which is not a good start to trying to acheive a hat-trick of being Australia's No1 ODI Batsman for the Year as he was No.1 in 2002 & 2003.

    Adam Gilchrist continues his good run with the bat with an exciting 95 off just 72 balls. Good support from Ponting also with 42 off 54 balls. Andy Bichel & Brett Lee had shown great composure to help win the game for Australia . Yuvraj Singh's 139 off 122 was a great performance along with VVS Laxman's 106* off 130.

    Gilchrist continues to lead the batting rankings comfortbally and even with now a two match rest, I still believe that Gilchrist will still be No.1. Brad Williams has a big lead in the bowling rankings with the likes of Jason Gillespie & Brett Lee having to play catch up so far.

    Well another win to Australia as expected, though Zimbabwe's performances have improved as the VB Series has moved on.

    Michael Bevan: Promotion to No.4 = Runs, Bevan made a good 75 off 91 balls. Ricky Ponting also chipped in with 63 off 71. Michael Clarke (36 off 49) and Andy Symonds (34 off 30) conributed also with the bat. Heath Streak took 3/45 (10), a good bowling performance. Grant Flower's 94 (106) was good, slow to start but he picked up the pace later on in his man of the match innings. Though in the end Australia ended up winning by 13 runs.

    In the Batting Rankings, it is tight from No.3 to No.6 with the gap being only 38 points. Though interestingly with the players from No.3 to No.6, Michael Bevan (No.6) averages the most points and he is 3rd overall in batting points averages. In the Bowling Rankings, Brad Williams continues to perform well and he has a 149 point lead over No.2 Andy Symonds.
