Kenneth Doug Walters, an attacking Australian batsman, holds up the 5th position in this list. As described by his team-mates, Walters possessed a typical Australian character. He was a legend of his era. This could be easily marked by his test debut. He scored 155 in his first Test innings and another century in the second test match of his life. He completed 2000 test runs in the 35th test innings. He was playing the 22nd test of his career, against the Proteas on 22 Jan, 1970 in Capetown; when he completed this milestone. During the early part of his career, he was even compared with Sir Don Bradman. Other than in England, he would play like a master. England was a weak link of his cricketing career, averaging just 25.68 there in 18 tests. Overall, he has scored 5357 runs in 74 test matches.
