    Merv

    Merv

    As England take a 2-0 lead in the Ashes, and James Pattinson is ruled out for the rest of the series, how Australia must wish they had someone like Merv Hughes to call on.

    So much love for Merv. He was a superb bowler for us in the latter part of his career. Top piece as always mate

    Good stuff. Even touching on his time at Essex. Excellent.

    I hasten to add that I watched him as a young teenager at Lord's in 1993 (I think) and he played up to the group of us as we all told our stories about scary Merv Hughes, and he - standing right in front of us - turned around and shot us the Hughes stare and later a cheeky wink. What a legend.

    About 10 years ago, I went to a function where Merv was the speaker and he gave CA and young cricketers in Oz a massive spray

    Every word has proven true

    Quality bowler, top bloke, **** selector

    I like Merv but I'd rather we had bats the caliber of Law or Love to call on. They would walk into this Aussie lineup.
