    Mark Waugh

    What do you all think in what form of the game was Mark Waugh more successful in, Tests or ODI's?

    I personally think that he was a better ODI player.

    Most certainly one dayers. His test innig in 1995 where he had the partnership with Steve which helped them win the series in the Windies was a very good inning though. So he could certainly bat well in the tests too. People forget what a good slip fielder he was too, which was a good attriubute to have when you play tests.

    Mark Waugh will go down as one of the best slips fielders (Tests and ODI's) of all time.

    ODIs, but only because he played more.
    If Tests could be as frequent as ODIs, I reckon he'd be about equal.
    If anything, his ODI record is in the end a little disappointing - he's a better player for me than just about 40. He could have been 44-5.

    I think Mark was marginally a better ODI player then Test not to say he wasn't a good Test player. I loved to watch him in either forms of the game, his timing was superb, a delight to watch.

    His fielding was brilliant, second to none. He took some wonderful catches at slip.

    His catching might have been up with the best but his ground-fielding was acceptible and no more.

    yeah he was a great catcher...i especially remember 2 of his catches at short-midwicket when he was completely parallel to the ground (one of them was in the last innings at madras in the 2001 tour to india which almost won the series for aus)

    Mark Waugh is probably one of the best Australian cricketers to ever play... both Tests and ODI.

    I was just wondering... and wanted to get an opinion... Will Mark's achievements be under-rated, because of Steve Waugh's achievement? I do think so...

    Test average under 42, ODI average under 40...
    Not under-rated; a big, big underachiever.
    Stephen is by far the better player.

    Mark Waugh was a highly over-rated player. For the amount of talent he had he was a massive under achiever. He is one of the rare players to have a higher ODI higher score than a test higher score, and for someone who played 100+ tests that is not good enough.

    The one thing I will give Mark Waugh he usually scored runs when you needed them. However to have 20 odd centuries and to have a highest score of 154* just says something about the player.

    And for the great catcher he was he did drop some dead-set sitters.

    Mark was better than Steve in ODI and vice versa for tests. He was a great slipper though I once saw him put 2 easy ones down off consecutive balls. He gave his wicket away too easily at times for my liking. A good player not a great player.

    I'm wondering why he continues to be selected for NSW when his form over last year and a half has been pretty ordinary.
