Kim Hughes

Former Captain, Australian Test Cricket Team

Former cricketer Kim Hughes is the only West Australian to have captained the Australian test cricket team on a full-time basis. He was captain for several years in the early/mid eighties. Regarded as the most dashing batsman of his generation, Kim drew vast crowds to cricket with his audacious and breath-taking stroke play.

He led Australia in 28 test matches and played in 70 tests (scoring around 4,500 runs at an average of 37.41, with nine test centuries) and 97 ODIs between 1977 and 1985.

Kim was considered one of the most attractive middle order stroke masters to wear the baggy green cap. As well as being outstanding in the field, he was one of the first generation who had to combine the tasks of playing one day and test cricket.

Kim is very high profile in Perth through his role as a cricket commentator for Channel Nine and a sporting broadcaster on Radio 6PR (Perth’s equivalent of 2UE). He is also managing director of a company in the building industry and was a state selector for the WA Cricket Association.

Kim Hughes now entertains audiences as a passionate, inspirational and much sought-after speaker on cricketing and corporate matters. Kim’s presentations are entertaining, informative and motivational and include many humorous anecdotes.
