ICC wishes Merv Hughes On His 60th Birthday: The International Cricket Council (ICC) congratulated former Australian fast bowler Merv Hughes on his 60th birthday today. Praising his handlike mustache, the ICC said, ‘Happy Birthday, Merv Hughes’.
Hughes, the all-time favorite on the cricket field, played 53 Tests and 33 One Day Internationals, taking 212 and 38 wickets respectively in his competitive career spanning over 15 years.
ICC wrote on Twitter, "Biggest mustache in the history of cricket? Happy Birthday, Merv Hughes! (shortcake symbol)."
In no time the tweet got thousands of reactions with fans posting pictures of Indian Air Force fighter pilot Abhinandan, who was captured by Pakistan after his plane crashed. However he was released within a few days.
