He was not the natural or born leader stuff, but who had to shoulder Australia on the resignation of Kim Hughes. When he took over, Australian cricket was in a turmoil. He had to start it from scratch and build a team that was capable of playing the best and surviving the setbacks. He led Australia to its first world cup victory in 1987, it was the beginning of a golden era of cricket for Australia.

He was considered a misfit in the limited overs cricket, for his un-attractive batting style. In the annals of cricket history, he has a special place much due to his innovative captaincy and being the torch bearer who brought about a new found professionalism and positive attitude. He led Australia in 177 matches, off which 106 ended on the winning side with a win percent of 59.89%. He is no.2 in the list.
