Michael Clarke (316 runs at 79.00)
For the third consecutive home campaign, Clarke was named Player of the Series. He didn't make quite so immense scores as he had against India last summer or South Africa earlier this season, but he made at least a half-century in four of his five innings, failing to reach the mark only in the Sydney chase when the fans wanted a wicket to fall so Michael Hussey would walk to the crease. He looked well on the way to another hundred in the second innings in Hobart when he retired hurt with a hamstring injury on 57 from 46 balls and he carried the niggle through a century in Melbourne to help deliver Australia the series. He was, as always, aggressive in his captaincy and by declaring earlier than most observers expected in the first innings in Hobart, he allowed enough time for a result in a rain-affected Test. Now, Clarke can enjoy a well-deserved rest.

7.5
Michael Hussey (232 runs at 116.00, 9 catches)
In his farewell series, Hussey played an important role in two of Australia's three victories. In Hobart, his first-innings 115, and the brisk rate at which he scored, allowed Clarke to make his early declaration. In Sydney, his unbeaten 27 ensured Australia would not falter in their small chase and while he didn't manage to hit the winning runs, he and the Sydney fans appreciated the fact that he was in the middle when it counted. Throughout the series, Hussey was typically outstanding in the field and his nine catches included swirling skied balls and straightforward edges. Australia will miss Mr Cricket not only with the bat but also in the field.

Matthew Wade (191 runs at 63.66, 14 catches)
An unbeaten 68 in the first innings in Hobart was useful, but Wade's real contribution was his 102 not out at the SCG, which was all the more impressive as he had been promoted to No.6. He batted well with the tail and was ready for more runs - as was the case in Hobart - when Clarke called the batsmen in. Wade is becoming an increasingly valuable member of the side and although his glovework remains inconsistent, he contributed 14 catches to the series win. None was more impressive than his catch to remove Kumar Sangakkara off a top edge for 58 at the MCG, when he sprinted back towards the boundary and timed his dive perfectly.

David Warner (272 runs at 54.40)
That Warner averaged more than 50 in this series without any not-outs or hundreds is an indication of his consistency. Apart from his golden duck in the last innings of the series, he reached fifty in every other innings. Importantly, he is also batting longer, a key factor for Test openers. Last summer, in his first season of Test cricket, he survived for an hour only twice from his ten innings. This season against South Africa and Sri Lanka, he did so seven times from ten innings. Whether he can maintain such consistency against India and England is the big question, but there is no doubt Warner is growing as a Test batsman, and he contributed to all three of Australia's wins.

Peter Siddle (15 wickets at 16.93)
The heart and soul of Australia's attack during the South African series, Siddle remained so against Sri Lanka. His nine-wicket match in Hobart was another bravura performance in a bowling group that was one man down - Ben Hilfenhaus had gone off injured in the first innings - and it was Siddle who ran through Sri Lanka's No.3 to 6 batsmen in the chase. His workload in Melbourne and Sydney was reduced but he made valuable strikes throughout the series.


Jackson Bird celebrates after bowling Mahela Jayawardene, Australia v Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Melbourne, 3rd day, December 28, 2012

Jackson Bird (11 wickets at 16.18)
Australia's find of the summer. Bird is an unassuming type who runs in and does his job, and his job was to build pressure, deny runs and nip batsmen out with his bounce and subtle swing and seam movement. Unfazed by the atmosphere during his Boxing Day debut, he slotted in seamlessly to Test cricket and was so good in collecting seven wickets in Sydney that he was Man of the Match. He offered Stuart Clark-like control and by the end of the series, it was hard to imagine the Australians heading to the Ashes this year without Bird, even if the full complement of fast men are fit.

7
Mitchell Johnson (9 wickets at 19.00, 106 runs at 106.00)
After sitting out in Hobart, Johnson was a major contributor to Australia's victory at the MCG, where he was included and Mitchell Starc was controversially left out. As he was banging in awkward short deliveries the Sri Lankans might have been wishing Starc, who had bowled Australia to victory at Bellerive Oval, had been included. Better Starc's yorkers than Johnson's hand-crushers. He was responsible for breaking Kumar Sangakkara's hand and Prasanna Jayawardene's thumb, and it was a brief flashback to the Johnson of 2008-09. By scoring 92 not out Johnson also secured the Man of the Match award. In Sydney he was quieter, with three wickets.

Phillip Hughes (233 runs at 46.60)
Just as disco struggled to penetrate the late 80s, Hughes is also finding it difficult to push through into the 90s at the moment. This series brought scores of 86 and 87 for Hughes, who also scored 88 in Johannesburg last season shortly before being axed. His return has been in the less familiar position of No.3 and while it is too early to judge if he should remain there, his contributions in this series - including 34 in the small chase in Sydney - were encouraging. He showed a willingness to pull and appeared to have improved his technique from his earlier forays into the Test side. He just needs to make sure he doesn't remain Disco Phil for too long.

Mitchell Starc (10 wickets at 28.70)
Australia would not have won the first Test were it not for Starc. Sri Lanka were threatening to hang on for a draw until Starc ran through the lower order in Hobart, where he found a little extra bounce at times, and also targeted the yorker. His 5 for 63 meant great controversy ensued when he was rested at the MCG, where Australia's selectors were concerned about the likelihood he would break down. He returned in Sydney and collected another four wickets, and remains the most durable of Australia's young fast men.


Ed Cowan cuts on his way to a half-century, Australia v Sri Lanka, 1st Test, Hobart, 4th day, December 17, 2012

5
Ed Cowan (136 runs at 27.20)
The numbers don't look good for Cowan, but if an opener's primary role is to take the shine off the new ball then he is still doing his job. In his five innings this series he averaged 96 minutes at the crease, more than enough time to dull the initial threat. In comparison to Warner he was less productive, but an opening partnership is a two-man affair and Australia's opening stands averaged a respectable 56.20 this series. His second-innings 56 in Hobart was valuable in dragging the Test out of Sri Lanka's reach and his steady 36 in Sydney ensured Australia breathed easier following the loss of Warner for a duck in their chase of 141. He didn't help himself with an embarrassing run-out in the first innings at the SCG, but overall Cowan's series was not as bad as it might appear on paper.

Shane Watson (118 runs at 39.33, 2 wickets at 56.00)
Watson's slide down the batting order continued with his presence at No.4 in the first two Tests. His 83 at the MCG was a good innings but it was also a missed opportunity for a man with only two Test centuries. But the big concern was the calf injury Watson sustained after his heavy bowling workload in Hobart, where he sent down a career-high 47.4 overs. After being ruled out of the Sydney Test, Watson indicated for the first time that he would consider giving up bowling to concentrate on his batting.

4
Nathan Lyon (7 wickets at 43.85)
In terms of his bowling average this was Lyon's worst Test series, but he remains Australia's best Test spin-bowling option. There were times when he deceived the batsmen - his flight drew Lahiru Thirimanne into a loose shot when he was 91 in Sydney - but too often he appeared to be going through the motions. Still, he will be an important player for Australia in their upcoming tours of India and England, and has also succeeded Hussey as the leader of the team song.

1
Ben Hilfenhaus (1 wicket at 30.00)
Injured in Hobart, his only contribution to the series was nipping the ball away to have Dimuth Karunaratne caught behind before he started to feel pain in his side.

@R_U_4_REAL_NICK,

Wade was "wearing his shoes on his hands instead of gloves". I almost fell over laughing at this, so true. And his gloves he probably thought were meant to carry the drinks in!

Posted by Shaggy076 on (January 8, 2013, 22:38 GMT)

Joseph Langford - 5 wickets is not even close to losing. Yes we did everything wrong in this test, send the opposiition in, bowl poorly early, get caught in the deep, heaps of run-outs, averaging bowling in the second innings, many dropped catches. But we still won comfortably.

Posted by R_U_4_REAL_NICK on (January 8, 2013, 21:00 GMT)

Michael Hussey (232 runs at 116.00, 9 catches) and only gets 7.5? Really? Even RandyOZ is surprised his new 'favourite wicket-keeper batsmen ever' is scored so highly despite him wearing his shoes on his hands instead of gloves for most games... That's the only way one could explain so many dropped sitters.

Posted by   on (January 8, 2013, 12:47 GMT)

@ Shaggy076 .... Aust was close to losing. If that first ball to Hughes had of swung a few more inches Australia would have been 2/0. Even at 4/108 .... Australia lost 5/41 against NZ just over 12mths ago.

@ fazald .... Ed Cowan batted perfectly in this scenario. He didn't play a loose, rash shot like Warner and give his wicket away. He carried his bat for over 30-overs until Australia had passed 100. In fact .... he top scored for Australia in the innings. It was a good opener's knock.

@ THE REST OF YOU who want to replace Watson for Cowan .... Watson's average since August 2011 (20 Innings) has been 26.4. This is significantly lower than Cowan's average.

I am not saying that Cowan's game is perfect and would recommend that he play as many Shield Matches as he possibly can before India. In between games he should meet with Lyon at the nets. While Lyon learns about varying speed of delivery, Cowan can learn to use his feet against spin.

Posted by Shaggy076 on (January 8, 2013, 11:15 GMT)

Fazald - Did I read your comment right we nearly lost because Cowan was so defensive. 1) We were not even close to losing 2) Cowans contribution was significant in us winning.

Posted by Big-Dog on (January 8, 2013, 6:55 GMT)

Criticism of Cowan is largely unjustified. Because of the T20 culture that is infecting Cricket, people have forgotton what the real role of a test opener is & that is to take the shine off the new ball & set up a platform for the middle order. A role that Cowan does pretty well imho.

Posted by Wefinishthis on (January 8, 2013, 6:43 GMT)

Cowan is just not good enough. He's now had 4 series in a row, half of them easy home series and only averages 32 with just 1 century on a flat home pitch. Had a better player been in his stead, we might have been no.1 by now in the final match with SA. I'd be looking for Watson, Hughes or Burns to open with Warner, despite me not feeling good about Watson being in the top 5 at all. I hope they take 'our' KP in Kurtis Patterson on tour, just for the experience at least.

Posted by Mad_Hamish on (January 8, 2013, 3:36 GMT)

I don't see how Wade manages a 7.5 his keeping was terrible. Watched a couple of the 20-20s where Paine is playing for Tassie and the difference in class behind the wickets is apparent. I think Johnson is somewhat hard done by only getting a 7 when he's got a bowling average of 19 and a batting average over 100 (especially if Starc gets a 7 when his bowling average was 28.7, yeah he had a good spell in Hobart but his bowling earlier in the test was a large part of why Sri Lanka held on long enough to need that spell, if he took 5-63 in that innings and 10-287 that means his other innings combined for 5-224...) Hussey is also probably being underrated, did very little wrong in the series and looked by far the most comfortable bat in Aus' second innings in Sydney. He'll be badly missed in India.

Posted by zenboomerang on (January 8, 2013, 3:31 GMT)

@Brydon Coverdale... Think Huss deserved an 8.5 at least - batted great, good in the field & could have made more runs if Clarkey hadn't run him out... Cowan I would have dropped down for his very lazy running or at least ranked Lyon higher as both Clarke & Wade didn't help by dropping catches... Watto probably deserved a 5.5 or 6 considering his bowling effort in Hobart & batting at the MCG... Not sure ranking Hilfy is even fair, but he bowled well before breaking down in the 1st innings of the 1st Test - not much to go on there...

Posted by fazald on (January 8, 2013, 3:29 GMT)

I reckon Ed Cowan should be dropped from the side for the tours of India and England. I thought he was too defensive in the second innings against Sri Lanka in the Sydney test which helped the Sri Lankan bowlers to dominate and almost pull off a victory against Australia. He even failed to dispatch half volleys and full tosses to the boundary and played into the hands of the Sri Lankan spinners. It was totally the wrong approach to take while trying to chase a small total as 141 runs. In fact he made the task look very very difficuilt for the batsmen to follow. Had Sri Lanka managed to score another 50 runs more to their total Australia would have been in serious trouble if Hussey got out cheaply. I think Hughes should open the innings with Warner and Khawaja should come in at number three. It would be a good opportunity to introduce a hard hitting batsman like Dooley, Finch, David Hussey or Quiney into the Australian test team. The other weaklink in the aussie side is Nathan Lyon.

Posted by maf17 on (January 8, 2013, 2:56 GMT)

SevereCritic, I dont think the English batting lineup is that superior to Australia. Cook & Clarke cancel each other out and none of the other English batsmen save Pietersen is in world-beating form. Pietersen is Englands big advantage, Australia have no-one in the same class as he is in destroying an attack. I know the theory that he is vulnerable to left-arm spin has been talked to death, but you can bet London to a brick that the selectors will be paying close attention to Xavier Doherty and Michael Beer's form in the lead-up.

Posted by   on (January 8, 2013, 2:34 GMT)

Hussey - 9.5 How can you give somebody who's average was over 100 anything less?? It could have been over 200 but Clarke ran him out in the 3rd Test (I think people who gave man of the series overlooked this). Spectacular in the field ..... but you did drop one catch.

Siddle - 8.0 You are pure gold. YOU ripped the heart out of SL Mid Order and won the 1st Test.

Johnson - 8.0 What do you want, a Bwl Av. of 15 and a Bt Av. of 120??

Clarke - 7.5 Our lucky Captain. Average boosted by a century where he was dropped on 5 missed stumping on 54 and missed again on 83, but has a real problem chasing runs in the 4th Innings. Captaincy??? Hmmm. Let's say he learnt something ... 1st Test SL chasing an unattainable target opens with 2SL & a G ... 3rd Test SL trying to make a Aust Bat opens with 3SL & a G ... Dilshan is caught 3rd Slip.

Warner - 7.5 They will work you out.

Bird - 7.5 What a prospect

Hughes - 7.5

Wade - 6.0 Learn to keep for spinners

Watson - 5.0 Back to Shield Cricket.

@Andrew Foruria - mate NOBODY respects him. He is NOT WORTH debating, it will only encourage him. At least RandyOz was original!

Posted by dunger.bob on (January 7, 2013, 23:23 GMT)

@ Razmont on (January 07 2013, 13:43 PM GMT) : Ed Zachary mate. If he continues to miss stumpings and catches (what about his throw to MJ in that run out attempt) he'll need to average 200 with the bat to bring things to parity. .. don't get me wrong, I like Wadey and he is only 24, but he has to pick his keeping up, no two ways about it. .. poor old Lyon could be excused for sticking a few pins into a Wadey doll considering the wickets he could have had.

Posted by dalboy12 on (January 7, 2013, 22:42 GMT)

Agree that Jackson Bird looks a very good player for Aussie - reminds me of Philander, and he destroyed England last year. Also he's not your normal Aussie quick -- he seems to let his bowling do the talking, not his mouth....unlike Siddle, Pattinson, and the rest of them - a nice change. SA may have the best attack in the world at the moment but man has Aussie got some depth, they have so many quality quicks at the moment its just getting stupid. I've said a lot though that people must remember that Aussie conditions are very unique and other teams always struggle there. So I would say that the Ashes is going to be very close, as for India --- well who knows given how India is playing at the moment. They should produce rank turners (which I have no problem with its called 'home advantage')---- then it would be an interesting battle.

Posted by potofazherbaizan on (January 7, 2013, 20:59 GMT)

Swapping Johnson and Wade around was my only different opinion

Posted by Front-Foot-Lunge on (January 7, 2013, 20:01 GMT)

@Steven Andrews "Posted by Steven Andrews on (January 07 2013, 12:43 PM GMT) Front-Foot-Lunge we do have a young spinner who is super talented and can spin the ball with great control. Adam Zampa!"

Adam Zampa - Sounds great. Get him in the team quick, otherwise Australia might as well force Hussey out of retirement and retain him as the spin option. Lyon is a seamer, not a spinner, so Australia might as well have a seamer instead of Lyon to take to India. India have very good spinners, Australia have 'Lyon the Mystery Seamer'. Now is surely the time to change that...

Posted by RandyOZ on (January 7, 2013, 19:17 GMT)

Pretty accurate although Wade is a bit high. Cowan also too high. Looking good for crushing India and England though.

Posted by   on (January 7, 2013, 18:50 GMT)

@SevereCritic your ranking of WicketKeeper batsmen is quite surprising to me. No doubt that ABD is the best wicket keeper now a days. But Prior & Wade next!! Lol!! you must be kidding. Wade has scored just 510 runs so far and he comes ahead of Dhoni!! And Dhoni is far better WicketKeeper than Prior. I guess we need to consider Primary Job before going to Secondary!!

Posted by SevereCritic on (January 7, 2013, 17:57 GMT)

The Ashes 2013 is promising to be a good series and will depend a lot on the fitness and availability of the fast bowlers from either side. Aussie pace bowling bench is deeper than the English. The English success will depend entirely on Anderson and Finn being fit and at 100%. The bench of Meaker, Onion is untested and unproved. Broad's in a decline. Bresnan is useless. On the other hand, the English have a far superior batting line up. Besides Clarke, the rest of the Aussie line up is sorta still trying to find its feet in the side and none of the other top 6 batsmen command the type of respect that Aussie top 6 batsmen usually are known to do. Also Swann is a way better bowler than Lyon. So, teams look pretty evenly match. Hope the rain dont spoil the series. Otherwise the Ashes 2013 will definitely be one for the drama books.

Posted by SevereCritic on (January 7, 2013, 17:47 GMT)

I think Wade's problem is that no matter what he does, he will always be measured against Adam Gilchrist. To be fair to Wade, Gilly was one in a million keeper and Wade falls miles short in the comparison. ABDV is arguably the best keeper-batsman in the world at the moment, with Prior second and Wade 3rd in tests (Sanga doesn't keep in tests and Dhoni can't bat in tests).

Posted by   on (January 7, 2013, 17:45 GMT)

@ gsingh7 it doesn't really matter so long as somebody makes the runs. I really doubt your hero's will do much with the bat - unless the pitches are purposely made for them. The India-Australia series means nothing to me. I don't think it ranks as a special series on the minds of the Australian players either. It's all about the ashes, and that is IT. Hopefully that series is forgotten before it has even finished. It has no relevance to the Ashes so performances are irrelevant. Of course, it would be nice to finish tendalkar off finally with embarrassing scores, so that matters.

Posted by kirangupta on (January 7, 2013, 16:27 GMT)

Bit harsh on Hilfy! Thought Lyon could of had maybe a 5 or 5.5. Watson deserved 2.5-3.

@gsingh7: I hope you were trying to be ironic. Otherwise, your comment makes no sense. 'Flat tracks' where Sachin and Sehwag will run riot? You mean like how Sachin and Sehwag ran riot against England in the recent test series, or Sehwag ran riot against Pakistan in the ODI series? Dhoni, Kohli, Gambhir and BCCI tried to get doctored wickets to suit India, and India still got clobbered by England in the test series and lost the ODI series to Pakistan. Perhaps India should just play Bangladesh and Zimbabwe from now. That way, they can (I hope) beat those teams and feel good about themselves, while the really good sides play each other and give the world better cricket.

Posted by Louey on (January 7, 2013, 13:43 GMT)

Wade scored 191 runs himself - but has anyone yet worked out how many runs Sri Lanka scored after each one of his stuff ups. And how many times was he dropped on the way to those 191 runs as well. Luckiest player around, overrated at 7.5 and not up to Test cricket, century or not. Shocking keeper, who should go back to Shield cricket to learn his trade.

Posted by Front-Foot_lunge on (January 7, 2013, 13:07 GMT)

As an England fan, there are some worryingly good signs for Australia. Even though Sri Lanka are a young side, I didn't expect them to lose 3-0. Australia, who also are a young side, are brim full of talent. When England played Sri Lanka at home (we lost in Sri Lanka incidentally), we could only manage 1-0, and that was only due to a freak last day at Taunton. We then went on the next year to be humiliated by Pakistan and South Africa to sail perilously close to being the worst performing England team ever in a calendar year. To think some fellow fans think a couple of wins against an India in transition means those shortcomings have suddenly disappeared, speaks volumes to their lack of cricketing knowledge and perspective.

Posted by   on (January 7, 2013, 12:43 GMT)

Front-Foot-Lunge we do have a young spinner who is super talented and can spin the ball with great control. Adam Zampa! dont worry about what you have seen in the big bash where he has bowled well, but in shield cricket on a roughing up wicket. Australia are going to kill the Old Indian team full of Grandads and then go to England and destroy the English on their lands. Pattinson, Bird, Zampa, Johnson will destroy all infront of them, the question remains can our batting lineup without hussey make enough runs without relying on Clarkey.

Posted by WheresTheEmpire on (January 7, 2013, 12:14 GMT)

Here's a rating for another spinner.

0 - Ashley Giles Appalling first up coaching effort. Thrashed by India A. Needs to add some biltong to his breakfast or will find himself replaced in the near future.

Posted by Advin on (January 7, 2013, 11:32 GMT)

In all the series he has played to date,Cowan would score 5.He just does not go on to a big score and I wonder if he offers any long term hope for Australia.If his county stint can improve him and get him into the Ashes series,then so be it but for India ,Warner should be opening with Hughes or Watson.

Posted by gsingh7 on (January 7, 2013, 11:24 GMT)

overrated batsman is clarke, he will be ruthlessly exposed in india on 'flat tracks' where sachin and sehwag will run riot, he only scored in aus and is dismal abroad

Posted by   on (January 7, 2013, 11:14 GMT)

@Front-Foot-Lunge: Mate, you're sounding like the English equivalent of RandyOZ. I know we're in some trouble for the ashes, but calm down. Lyon's figures were bad because he bowled on unresponsive decks to batsman used to playing on turning pitches (and he could've bowled better, I will admit). Also, what's so bad about Clarkey's captaincy (come on mate, golden opportunity, tear my head off and no-one outside England will ever respect you again)?

Posted by Front-Foot-Lunge on (January 7, 2013, 9:57 GMT)

"Nathan Lyon (7 wickets at 43.85) In terms of his bowling average this was Lyon's worst Test series, but he remains Australia's best Test spin-bowling option."

Says. It. All.

The first thing Australia need to do is find a guy who can turn the ball, surely the pre-requisite of any spin bowler. Just look what England have in Swann, the long-established biggest turner of the ball in world cricket. And Australia have Nathan Lyon...

Posted by Front-Foot-Lunge on (January 7, 2013, 9:55 GMT)

A bunch of club-rate amateurs who would be hard pressed to challenge the Brentwood Minnows 3rd XI. Led by one of the worst decision-makers Australia have ever given the captaincy to.
