Bronzed Waugh unveiled at SCG


SYDNEY – Former Australian skipper Steve Waugh was immortalised in a bronze sculpture unveiled during the final Ashes Test at
the Sydney Cricket Ground Wednesday.
Waugh is shown holding aloft his bat and baggy cap in celebration of his 29th and perhaps most famous Test century, which he completed off the final ball of a day’s play against England at the ground in 2003. “That was probably the most pleasing moment of my career,” Waugh said after the unveiling.
Waugh, 45, who won 41 of his 57 Tests as captain at a success rate of 72 percent, said the positioning of the
statue, between the changing rooms and
the practice nets at the SCG, was also
significant. Waugh played an Australian
record 168 Tests and scored 10,927 runs.
Only Ricky Ponting and Allan Border
have scored more runs for Australia.
