Comparisons at the best of times can be odious, but when it comes to triumphs in sports like football or cricket, an occasion is created to iconise players with a colour, an animal or even a drink, in attempt to showcase particular traits or qualities that make him or her special.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Australia's cricketers qualify for such a comparative accolade. So here goes:

1. Justin Langer - Tequila slammer -It can make you very groggy

2. Matthew Hayden -151-proof rum -A strong drink that can leave you a bit delusional

3. Andrew Symonds -Whiskey -A brute of a drink

4. Ricky Ponting -Penfolds 707 wine - Not quite Grange Hermitage, but maturing with age.

5. Glenn McGrath - 2.2 lite -You can drink all day and still be bowling well at 5.59pm.

6. Brad Hodge -XXXX - Who can give a XXXX if he is in the team or not

7. Brett Lee -Vodka jelly -All pop, no fizzle

8. Stuart MacGill -Gin and tonic -Dignified, yet many think it's a girl's drink

9. Michael Clarke -Smirnoff ice -Nice marketing, but not enough bang for your buck

10. Shane Warne -Coopers Ale -A lot of dirt to dig up

11. Damien Martyn -Long Island tea -Elegant, yet sour drink

12. Adam Gilchrist -Home brew -As likely to taste good as it is to blow up in your face

13. Mike Hussey - Drambuie -Top shelf, the drink that satisfies.

14. Jason Gillespie - Grappa - Tough to stomach but well worth it

15. Nathan Hauritz - Cooking sherry - The cabinet's bare, there is only one thing left to drink
