    Best in the decade?

    How come I never saw any other report about the news that Matthew Hayden had been named by Wisden as the best test batsman of the last decade?

    I'd expect to see such a report first on Cricinfo/Wisden! Very bizarre.

    Lest we forget, Hayden had a superb time between 2001 and 2004. His performances began to go downhill from the series in India, despite his claims of India's bowlers being scared of him. In 2005, he reached new depths, but somehow retained his place in the test side in spite of a post-Ashes culling by the selectors. He then provided us with an inside perspective of how a long hangover cost Australia the Ashes. Hayden somehow ended up being in the top three contenders for the Australian Test Cricketer of the Year' award.
