FORMER Australian bowler Merv Hughes will hold centre stage at a cricket promotion at Oddies Creek Park tomorrow.

Cricket fans will be able to enjoy a beer in the Carlton Mid Beer Garden, have a hit with their local cricket clubs in the Cricket Australia Family Zone and roll their arm over for a shot at winning up to $2500 with the fast bowling legend.

The one-day clash between Australia and England will be shown live on a big screen.

“To all my regional friends — bring down a chair, set up a picnic rug and join me to watch the cricket and soak up the atmosphere at the Ultimate One Dayer Live Sites,” Hughes said.

CAW chairman Michael Erdeljac said a radar would be available for youngsters to check the speed of their bowling.

The action will run from 1.30pm to 10pm.
