Video: Shane Warne imitates Merv Hughes
Shane Warne runs into to bowl in a Merv Hughes action
It is rumoured in the Australia dressing room that Shane Warne is very good at imitating other cricketers. What goes on in the locker rooms stays buried there and we as spectators never get to experience the other talents of our beloved cricketers.
But here is a rare occasion when Shane Warne displayed his mimicry skills to the crowd as he ran into bowl imitating the big old Merv Hughes. Warney does a perflect imitation of his hefty diagonal run-up and bowls the perfect Hughes length and leaves the crowd in splits.
The great leg spinner went a step further as he bowled off spin imitating Greg Mathews’s action. Shane Warne stamps himself as a genuine entertainer and crowd’s favourite in the video.
