4. Steve Smith:
Nobody could have imagined a young leg spinner from New South Wales, making his test debut against Pakistan, to captain his national side in five years and score runs in such abundance. Such has been the success story of Steven Peter Smith, who has come leaps and bounce from once being a leg spinner to the most reliable Australian batsman. He feeds on his success and strives for more, scoring against every opposition team he faces and makes batting look easy. At an average of 73.70, Steve has almost manufactured runs from his bat piling it up to 1474 runs (highest in the year) in the 24 innings he has played. He is a busy player who finds a way to keep the scoreboard ticking thus putting the pressure on the opposition. With runs under his belt, he certainly looks to lead this new Australian side to the old times of invincibility and success.
