Stephen "Tugga" Waugh is currently rated the world's best batsman.
Along with his batting, Waugh is an aggressive medium pacer and versatile fieldsman.
In comparison to his twin Mark, Steve did not have to wait long to taste Test cricket. One season after debuting for NSW, Waugh was plunged into the tough international circuit at a time when Australia was at the cricketing cross-roads.
Waugh's Test career was inconsistent for many years, surging ahead in England in 1989 before losing his place to his brother in 1990/91.
Recent times, however, have seen him reign supreme as the most consistent, prolific and mentally tough batsman in the world.
One of his many career highlights was a double century against the West Indies at Kingston in 1995, a key factor in the reclainimg of the Sir Frank Worrell Trophy. He was named man of the series for his 429 runs (average 107.25), five vital wickets and six catches.
