Player Profile
        Steve Waugh is Mr. Dependable of the Australian team. He and his twin brother Mark have completely different styles, Mark is the more elegant player of the two, whereas Steve reamins the older, the thinker and the improviser. Steve Waugh is famous for his big match temperament, as he seldom fails his team on a big occasion. A good example would be his 120* off 110 balls vs South Africa in the last match of the Super Sixes in World Cup 1999. He came when it seemed impossible for Australia to reach the semis, as there were stranded at 38/3 but from then on he steered his team home and to the cup which they eventually won. In the same innings he was dropped by Hershelle Gibbs, when Steve asked him "how does it feel to drop the cup?", how prophetic those words were because if it were not for that catch Australia would have never reached the semis or the finals to lift the world cup (the fact whether Steve Waugh has psychic powers still remains a mystery). He was the number one allrounder in the world a few years ago, but recently an injury prevents him from bowling his medium pacers. Though in tests Steve was doing very well, his one day form was quite poor until the World Cup, where he was the second highest run scorer in the tournament with 398 of them. Steve Waugh was appointed one day captain of Australia in 1997 and the test captain in 1999. Since then he as lead his team well, as Australia are now the most consistent team in the game, as well as the world champs. Steve holds the record for the number of 90s (without scoring a 100) in all of test cricket history, although it is a very unfortunate record, it's one worth mentioning.
