Australia captain Steve Waugh Five Australian players to watch
Steve Waugh
Steve Waugh (captain)
The rivalry between Australia and England often brings out the best in the Aussie captain. At 37, he's still one of his team's top batsmen.

Adam Gilchrist
Adam Gilchrist
He'll be dangerous coming in at number seven, as Gilchrist can do serious damage unless he's dismissed early on. He's an incredible batsman with an amazing assortment of shots up his sleeve.

Shane Warne
Shane Warne
He's been called the best leg spinner the world has ever seen. Warne's got a reputation for accuracy and having lost lots of weight before the series is in great form.

Glen McGrath
Glen McGrath
One of the best fast bowlers around, McGrath is dangerous to England because he never gets bored, is incredibly talented, and gets the wickets.

Matthew Hayden
Matthew Hayden
He made his breakthrough for Australia in 2001, although not in the Ashes. But Hayden, in partnership with Justin Langer, is likely to give Australia a great start with the bat.
