Ricky Ponting captained Australia in more One Day Internationals than any other player.

Tasmania is an Australian state, it has produced cricketers that have represented Australia in all forms of the game—Tests, One Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is). The first Tasmanian to play for Australia was Sam Morris, who took part in the 2nd Test of the 1884/85 Ashes series, his only Test appearance.[1] Ricky Ponting is the only Tasmanian to have captained Australia in all three formats, while George Bailey has done so in T20 and ODI matches and Tim Paine captained Tests. Ponting captained Australia more times in ODIs than any other player.[2] Ponting scored more runs than any Australian in Tests and ODIs, the only other Tasmanians to score over 1,000 runs in either format of the game are Matthew Wade, George Bailey and David Boon.[3][4] Max Walker is the only Tasmanian to have taken over 100 Test wickets for Australia.[5]

This list is restricted to players who were born in Tasmania, and even if (like Max Walker) they did not ever play for the state. It does not include players such as Ed Cowan, who was not born in Tasmania, even though he played for Australia while a member of the Tasmanian state team.
