An unashamed 2005 Ashes cliché cricket fan. Michael fell hard for the game as an 11-year-old, watching Michael Vaughan’s merry-men defeat the legendary Australia side in what he will defend to the death as the greatest series of all time. Unfortunately, this was slightly too late in life for him to get any good at the actual sport itself.
A self-taught, googlies only bowler, career highlights have included under-15 B-team player of the year and one-time figures of: 0.3 overs, 0 runs, 3 wickets. In addition to these heady heights as a player; as a fan Michael has devoured cricket in any form, through books, television, live matches, radio and now podcasts!
Currently living within 15 minutes walk of the Oval and working as a Policy Officer in local government, the best thing about Hit for Six for Michael is being able to talk about his favourite sport as much as he wants without fear of boring anyone!
