Can't really argue with Bradman's record. Has anyone ever dominated cricket as much? Has anyone ever dominated any sport this much?

Makes sense for him to be captain. After all, in an Aussie side, the best bat is captain, regardless. Why should this side be any different?

(The only exception I can think of is Richie Benaud, am I wrong?)

The Reverse Sweep

Other than Benaud Howe_zat, the only name that comes readily to mind is Warwick 'The Big Ship' Armstrong, who was a fine (and ruthless) Aussie captain


I didn't know about Armstrong, after some googling he sounds like an interesting character.

It could be argued that even he was still the best Aussie batsman during his time as captain:;spanmax1=26+Sep+1921;spanmin1=15+Mar+1920;spanval1=span;team=2;template=results;type=batting

The Reverse Sweep

Impressive stats, but I'd rate Macartney above him. Other than Keith Miller though, The Big Ship was probably Australia's greatest all-rounder
