- MERV HUGHES (AUSTRALIA)
If you wish to become a fast bowler, don’t get yourself overindulged in regular gym workouts and strict diet charts. Just follow Merv Hughe’s example. Barring their handlebar moustaches, David Boon and his fellow countryman had another thing in common- their bulky bodies. Merv was not only huge but gigantic. This man always promised a gala time on the cricket field with his on-field antics and typical Australian style of sledging. Even though he doesn’t have too many wickets to his name in international cricket (250 wickets to be precise), he continues to be one of the most colorful characters the game has ever seen.
SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENT-Merv Hughes took a hat-trick in a Test against the West Indies at the WACA in 1988/89.
