No offense but there can be no Australian all time test xi without Allan border. This guy picked them up from the shambles they used to be pre 87 world cup and turned them into world beaters and was the main reason that Australia was probably the greatest team ever and dominated in the 90's and 00's. He is massively underrated by all except his contemporaries, Steve waugh and Mark taylor themselves would admit that they owe much of their success to AB. Averaging 50 while playing in the 80's was one of the toughest tasks in cricket, only couple of other batsman have done it, combined with his unbelievable average outside Australia which was even better than his average at home.
