Last year my wife and I travelled through India for a couple of months. The locals everywhere were very friendly, especially the kids, who always wanted to chat. As soon as we mentioned we were from Australia, the conversation always turned to cricket. To amuse ourselves, we started to ask everyone we talked to who was their favourite Australian cricket player. We got some surprising answers. The winner of the poll was Adam Gilchrist, a result we could not argue with. Not far behind was Ricky Ponting and Brett Lee, and the Waugh brothers Steve and Mark. Greg Chappell often got a mention too as he was the current coach of the Indian cricket team.
