Mike
Whitney

Fascinating and entertaining presentations.

Profile

Synopsis:
Fast bowler Michael Whitney was a favourite among Australian and NSW cricket fans for both his sense of humour and whole-hearted approach to the game.

Current experience:

He has enjoyed a successful media career since retiring from cricket.

Previous experience:
He made his Test debut when surprisingly called up in 1981 but played almost all of his matches for Australia in the late 1980s and early '90s, and overall could be considered unlucky not to have played more than 12 Tests over his long career.

His greatest success at international level came in 1991-92, when he claimed his Test-best (4 for 68 and 7 for 27) in the fifth Test against India. That summer he was also Australia's highest wicket-taker and most economical bowler in the World Cup.

Whitney became a much-celebrated No. 11 batsman in the 1987 Boxing Day Test, surviving 18 deliveries and defying Richard Hadlee to help secure a draw against New Zealand.

Excellent. While we used Mike as an MC, he would be an entertaining keynote speaker also. Mike ran the function well and was willing to assist in any way we needed. Briars Hockey
