Michael has the great distinction of being the first ever Canberra born cricketer to play for his country. One of the few cricket players to have played over 250 games for Australia, he was, in his prime, arguably considered the best one-day batsman in the world. In 2007 he was chosen as a member of 'Australia's greatest ever ODI team.'

 

Michael Bevan is best known for guiding Australia to victory in impossible circumstances and situations, absorbing immense pressure in the dying overs of a run chase, often leaving victory until the last balls of the match.

 

One of Australia's most memorable sporting moments occurred on new year's day in 1996 in a one-day match against the West Indies at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Needing four runs to win off the last ball of the match, Michael calmly dispatched Roger Harper's last delivery over the head of the umpire to secure an unlikely victory for the Australian team.

 

Michael was a member of two winning ashes series and played in three world cups - claiming victory in two of them. He played in what many considered to be one of the greatest cricketing and sporting teams in history. He played in over 10 finals during a period of only 13 years for the NSW team, which is considered to be the most successful first class team ever.

 

Michael has been fortunate to play with many true sporting legends and inspiring leaders throughout his career.

 

He has dedicated his life to playing for Australia and becoming the best he could. He has built a vast knowledge of how and why individuals and teams become successful. Michael is an accredited level 3 / high performance cricket coach. In his 3 years as an assistant and batting coach with Tasmanian cricket squad, Michael helped them win their first one-day competition in 27 years and their first ever Pura Cup.

 

As head coach of the Chennai Superstars in the Indian Cricket League, Michael Bevan helped guide them to two straight victories in the first 2 competitions of the newly formed 20/20 League.
