Steve Waugh

Right-arm medium bowler

Born: 2 June 1965
State: New South Wales
Test appearances: 155
Debut: v India 1985

The skipper is like the proverbial bottle of red and talk of his demise is premature.

Admittedly he is under pressure as the years take their toll.

But he likes nothing better than an Ashes contest and is sure to feature from first to last.

He's tough and combative as that 150 on one leg the last time the sides met shows.

Put simply, the history and tradition of England-Australia brings the best out of him and he'll be wearing his battered Baggy Green with pride.
