Australian Cricket Hall of Fame

2009 Australian Cricket Hall of Fame inductee Steve Waugh in the National Sports Museum at the MCG.The Australian Cricket Hall of Fame was first proposed by the Melbourne Cricket Club in 1995.

With the support of Cricket Australia and Cricket Victoria, the Hall of Fame was officially opened by the then Prime Minister of Australia, the Honourable John Howard MP in 1996.

Selection philosophy for the hall of fame focuses on the players’ status as sporting legends in addition to their outstanding statistical records. 

All inductees must have been retired from international cricket for a minimum of five years to be eligible for selection.

An inaugural group of 10 players were inducted in 1996, and a further 31 have been welcomed since:
