Matthew Hayden is now the undisputed Number One batsman in the world according to the latest PwC Ratings. In the final official international before the World Cup, Hayden has gone top of the PwC Ratings for one-day batsmen.
This puts him simultaneously at number one in the Test and one-day tables, a feat achieved by very few batsmen in the past. Tendulkar, Lara and Viv Richards are other members of this exclusive batsman's club.
Brett Lee ends the VB series at fifth in the bowling ratings, his best ODI level yet. Lee is one of four Australian bowlers in the PwC top twelve.
For England, Andrew Caddick has returned to the top ten, but Marcus Trescothick has dropped out of it, after a poor end to the tournament.
