A Two Time Ashes Winning Cricketer Will Be Hurling In Tipp Tonight

Brendan Maher was down in Adelaide earlier this month as part of the Toughest Trade experiment. He spoke of his new found respect for cricket after his week with the Big Bash League outfit, the Adelaide Strikers.

But who is the cricket man who will try out hurling? The AIB GAA twitter account let slip the secret as they promoted the game in which he's involved tonight.

Two time Ashes winner Steve Harmison - one of the fastest bowlers ever - is the man in question.

We wish him luck tonight.
