Merv Hughes

Merv Hughes played Test cricket in a tumultuous period for the Australian team, weakened by a rebel tour and the retirements of stars of the game. After becoming the third Australian to take 200 Test wickets and make more than 1000 Test runs, Merv became a bowling coach for the Victorian Under-19 and senior teams, and the Melbourne Renegades. He served as a national selector for five years.
