DailyMail: Cricketer Sluggo in the Top 50

February 18, 2010

Bermudian cricket legend Dwayne “Sluggo” Leverock has been named one of the “Top 50 Unlikely Sporting Heroes” by British newspaper the Daily Mail.

Author Tom Bellwood said:

A monster of man, I’m not quite sure what to admire most – the fact that he played international cricket or that his weight hadn’t caused him serious health issues.

The 20st Bermudan spinner got Kevin Pietersen out at 2007 World Cup and took a brilliant diving catch to dismiss Ronin Uthappa of India before dancing with joy.

In even more remarkable news, Leverock once claimed a silver medal in the 110m hurdles at the Junior Caribbean Games as well as playing football at Hull City with Bermudian team Zebras. Is there anything this man cannot do?
