Throwback Thursday Cricket Edition

By Taryn Elder

There's nothing quite like a Throwback Thursday to get you through the working week.

We've gone into the archives at The Delivery HQ and left no stone unturned, to bring you the best of our Throwback Thursday cricket edition, including some of our past cricketing favourites. 

It's a case of 'like a fine wine' for some of our cricketers and on the other hand some look like they haven't aged a day.

Enjoy!

Captain Steve Smith
He was the shy teenager and self confessed 'cricket nuffie' who worked hard to become Australia's current cricket captain. This throwback of Steve Smith as a young teenager is an absolute classic.

Shane Watson
It's no secret our man Shane Watson was a fan of the tipping cap at the hairdressers. I think he and Michael Clarke might have gone to the same haidrdresser back in the day.. thoughts?

George Bailey
Aghh George. These throwbacks from a young George Bailey comparing him to now, are so good we had to include a few of them. We're not quiet sure about the shirt unbuttoned look... #fashion.

Shaun Marsh
Nothing like a throwback that includes a signature hoop earring, the essential fashion accessory for all young teenage boys in the 90's. Check out those dimples!

Mitchell Marsh 
Like a young Zac Efron (think High School Musical), a baby faced Mitch Marsh pictured posing for one of his first player mug shots (left) and snapped recently on the field with the Aussie team.

Pat Cummins
Pat Cummins was an avid backyard cricket fan but we didn't know he also enjoyed mud wrestling in the backyard. Pictured here as a young teenager (left), he was always going to be tall!

Usman Khawaja
We think Ussy must be drinking from the fountain of youth, pictured here (left) almost five years ago, he's barely aged a day.  What's his secret?

Mitchell Johnson
It wouldn't be a throwback without some frosted tips in the front of Mitch Johnson's hair. These days the cricketer who has retired from Test matches keeps it a little more suave and sophisticated.

Michael Clarke
Aghh Clarkey, the cricketer known for his 'natural' (cough) blonde hair and infatuation with a tub of gel. These days the Channel Nine commentator is rocking the 'el natural' colour of brown.

Shane Warne
And last but not least, a throwback tribute to former Aussie cricketer Shane Warne. The spin master was as cute as a button as a young boy. We're just disappointed we didn't find a photo of him wearing his signature Nike earring, remember...every boy in your primary school had to have one?
