Mark Waugh Biography

Mark Edward Waugh is a former Australian cricketer, who represented Australia in Test matches from early 1991 to late 2002, and made his One-Day International debut in 1988. Waugh was primarily a right-handed batsman, batting in the No.4 position in Test matches, and was also a handy medium pace bowler who later changed his profile to an off-spin bowler. He is regarded as one of the best slip fielders, with impressive statistics, ever to play cricket and held the world record for most Test catches by a non-wicketkeeper until Rahul Dravid broke it in 2009. He began as an all-rounder in the Australian ODI team, but he later focussed on batting, where he excelled and became Australia's leading one day runscorer. His three centuries at the 1996 Cricket World Cup made him the only batsman to ever achieve this feat, and a fourth century in the 1999 tournament made him the only Australian to score more than 1000 runs in World Cup competition and to score four centuries. Waugh is regarded as one of the most elegant and gifted stroke makers to ever play the game. He was regularly in the top 10 rated batsman from the mid 1990s to 21st century. Waugh is the younger fraternal twin brother of Steve Waugh with whom he played for most of his career and also under his captaincy.
