    The Bradman Luncheon

    The club’s annual and ever-popular cricket event, The Bradman Luncheon, will be held on Wednesday August 27 in the Members Dining Room.

    This year, members and their guests will be entertained by recently-retired former Australian batsman, Michael Hussey.

    The Western Australian left-hander played 79 Tests and 185 one-day internationals for his country, becoming a favourite of the cricketing public for his determination and adaptability.

    An opening batsman on Test debut in 2005, he eventually became a middle-order player for all occasions and in all conditions.

    Known as "Mr Cricket" for his passion and meticulous preparation, he made 6235 Test runs at 51.52, including 19 centuries. In the 50-over format, he scored 5442 runs at 48.15 with a strike rate of 87.16.

    Since his retirement in 2013, Hussey has continued in the Australian domestic Big Bash League T20 competition, as well as in the Indian Premier League for the Mumbai Indians. He is also a member of the Channel 9 cricket commentary team.

    Members and their guests will enjoy a three-course lunch and beverage package through the afternoon.
