Matthew Hayden is one of the most consistent batsmen of present day cricket. He has scored over 1000 runs in 2001,2002,2003,2004 and 2005. He is the only batsman to achieve such a remarkable feat. Matthew Hayden made his debut in the away series against South Africa. He was unimpressive throughout the series and returned home with dented confidence. Back in Australia, he continued to score heavily and forced his return. Matthew Hayden's tour of India in 2001 was a moment of epiphany for him. He scored 549 runs at an amazing average of 109.80.

Matthew Hayden held the record of highest score in an inning for a while when he scored 380 against Zimbabwe in 2003. A year later, the record by surpassed by its previous holder, Brian Lara, when he scored 400 against England. Matthew Hayden's compact batting holds the key to Australia's performance in the forthcoming World Cup. gives information on Matthew Hayden and other Great Cricket Players.
