Founder and Grand Wizard of the CW Football Thread Statluminati. Potential hater of abilities. Blocked on twitter by Michael Vaughan, Brad McNamara and AtlCricket for my hard hitting truths.
To answer the thread title, how about Shane Watson, Dan Christian, Moises Henriques and Mitch Marsh
Also spinners Nathan Hauritz, Steve O'Keefe and Steven Smith....
I think you are kidding yourself if you think the Aussie players don't care about their personal stats - regardless of what the correct thing to say in public is.
well hey since it got linked let's bump it
Give me Dale Steyn. Josh Hazlewood may not be in the runs but he can at least stick around

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Yeah I agree. Back in the days of Border and co, I genuinely believe Australia did have a hardened 'never say never' kind of ethos but these days I'm inclined to think the opposite. That's one of the major problems in Australian cricket these days; there aren't enough gritty players out there willing to put in the hard yards. Those sterotyped qualities about Aussie sports culture are losing there validity very quickly now.
Ponting IMO has done enough for Australian cricket to deserve to retire on his own terms. He's been prepared to emasculate himself by playing on as Australia's tactical bridesmaid, and he's better placed than most to know when he'll never get back into Test-standard form. I for one trust him to make that call when he believes it.
So far, he doesn't yet.
