Top Wicket Takers in Test Cricket From Australia

The Australian cricket team has played a rich vein of cricket over the years. Their history in the longest format of the game traces back to 1877 when they played the first Test match against England in 1877. The Australian cricket team has since then come a long way to become the most dominating side in world cricket and in doing so produced some of the finest ambassadors of the game.
