Mark Edward Waugh, AM (born June 2, 1965 in Canterbury, New South Wales) 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 is regarded as one of the most elegant and gifted stroke makers to ever play the game. His nickname is "Junior" as he is younger than his twin brother Steve by a few minutes. Dean Waugh, another of Mark's brothers, is also a cricketer, having played first-class and list A cricket in Australia.


Key achievements

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 changed to an off-spin bowler after back injuries restricted him.[1] He is regarded as one of the best slip fielders ever to play cricket,[2] and held the world record for most Test catches by a non-wicketkeeper until Rahul Dravid broke it in 2009.[3]
