Michael Bevan on board


The world has not seen many batsman who were better finishers of the game than the Australian Michael Bevan. His cool and calm composure and temperament down the order was crucial to Australia’s success in the limited over’s game. This great player will now be coaching in the Pakistan Super League as this was announced in the late hours of Friday.

Michael Bevan played 232 ODIs for Australia and scored almost 7000 runs at a healthy average of 53.58 which is amazing for a batsman that plays in the lower order. He also played 18 test matches but the longer format was clearly not his forte. His ability to milk singles and combine that with an odd boundary made the opposition frustrated.

Australian won two world cups when he was part of the side as a pivotal role in the success of the side. He will be remembered for times to come due to his heroics for Australia and future players can learn a lot from his innings and match finishing abilities.
