There probably is no venue more storied in world cricket than the Melbourne Cricket Ground or MCG or The G as it is popularly known. (Sorry, Lord’s.) Test cricket began here. So did one-day cricket. It is a grand stage, Australians would argue the grandest of them all, which celebrates its 162nd birthday today i.e. 23 September 2015. To mark that, Cricking looks back at 6 performances over the last century or so at ‘G’ where some of cricket’s best performers strutted their best stuff on a big occasion in front of crowds upwards of 80,000 people. These are 6 daredevils who went grand at the G in spectacular style.
