Merv Hughes was one of Australian cricket’s great characters and a crowd favourite.
A right-arm fast bowler, he represented Australia between 1985 and 1994 in 53 Test matches, taking 212 wickets. He played 33 One Day Internationals, taking 38 wickets. He took a hat trick in a Test against the West Indies at the WACA in 1988-89 and went on to take 8-87. In 1993 he took 31 wickets in the Ashes Series against England. He was a useful lower-order batsman, scoring two half-centuries in tests and over 1000 runs in all.
Whenever he is in the UK he is a popular choice on the after dinner circuit, and for corporate hospitality.
