greatest Australian all-rounders
Keith Miller, a tall, bold, extremely talented and good looking cricketer, is generally known as the greatest ever all-rounder to have emerged from Australia. On his day, Miller could win games almost single-handedly with either bat or ball, and his confidence with both was an absolute delight.

A member of Bradman’s Invincibles, in 1956, when Miller announced his retirement from Test cricket, he owned the best numbers in the game for any all-rounder at that time.

Miller started his career as a batsman and then gradually improved his bowling, and emerged as a world beater in both those domains. He was needed more as a bowler in the strong Invincibles line-up, and his numbers are a proof of his expertise.

In 55 matches, Miller scored 2958 runs with an average of 36.97, which included 7 centuries. With the ball he picked up 170 wickets with an outstanding average of 22.97.
