Merv Hughes was a big-hearted fast bowler and an Aussie sporting legend, loved by cricket fans globally as he ripped through batting line-ups all over the world. Representing Australia between 1985 and 1994, Merv gave every ounce of effort for his country and helped it re-climb the ranks of Test cricket. He continues to be involved in cricket at both an elite level, as bowling coach of the Melbourne Renegades and at a junior level, as a coach at Shaun Brown’s Coaching Clinics. As a successful author Merv has released many cricketing books, including ‘Merv’s Best Sporting Insults’ and his most recent tome, ‘Merv Hughes’ 104 Cricket Legends’. With a successful international career spanning over 30 years, Merv is a hugely popular keynote, anecdotal and/or motivational speaker.
