Matthew Hayden is widely regarded as one of the most powerful and aggressive left hand opening batsman in history. Known for his ability to score quickly at all levels of the game, Hayden scored 8,625 Test runs at an average of 50.73 and that included thirty centuries and 29 half centuries, with a highest score of a then world record 380. Hayden holds the record for the highest scores made by an Australian batsman in both the Test (380) and One Day International (181 not out). He formed one of the most prolific opening partnerships in world Test cricket for Australia with Justin Langer, and in ODI cricket with Adam Gilchrist.
His individual accolades included being named Test Player of the Year, Wisden Cricketer of the Year, International Cricket Council One-Day Player of the Year and One-Day International Player of the Year.
He scored over 1,000 Test runs in 01, 02, 03, 04 & 05, the first man to achieve the feat five times. He held the world record for the highest Test score, 380, having batted only five sessions.
His retirement means he can take his rightful place as one of the greatest players to have worn the Baggy Green. To commemorate the historic concluding stages of one of Australia’s greatest ever cricketers, SEP in conjunction with Cricket Australia have great pleasure of releasing the ‘Matthew Hayden – Career Range’ for you to secure as your unique piece of Australian sporting history.
