Steve Waugh

Steve Waugh Cricket World Cup Legend

Steve Waugh the elder of the Waugh twins was one of Australia present day great cricketers. Steve was the dogged top batsman who had a never say die attitude and in his later career was a great leader and captain.

In the 1999 World Cup in England his team were all at sea in the early games and he himself turned their fortunes around and Australia's victory in that year was solely his win.

He finally retired at the end of the 2003-04 series against India, bowing out with 80, his last shot an untypical heave to backward square leg.
