Merv debuted for Superstars in 1995 but played most of his cricket up to the mid 2000s for our sister (now defunct) club OSD. Merv 'the swerve' has played regularly - that is about twice a season - since 2007 and achieves prodigious movement with the ball although this is not reflected in the number of wickets taken to date at 37. A quality all rounder saving his best form for the Barbados 6 qualifiers for obvious reasons. Probably not the best person to organise a pi** up in a brewery but his excuses for missing matches are legendary inc I was laying grass. Will have played 50 matches by the time of his next appearance.
After the huge transfer fee was paid Merv 'the swerve' has played regularly - that is about twice a season - since 2007 and achieves prodigious movement with the ball although this is not reflected in the number of wickets taken to date at 37.
A quality all rounder saving his best form for the Barbados 6 qualifiers for obvious reasons. Probably not the best person to organise a celebration in a brewery but his excuses for missing matches are legendary inc "I was laying grass". Will have played 50 matches by the time of his next appearance.
Merv has made 49 appearences for the club. Surprisingly given his obvious ability he's yet to join any Superstars Clubs with 37 wickets (only 13 required), 343 runs and a noteworthily low 4 catches.
