David Boon

'Boonie' - as cricketing fans across the globe affectionately know him - is a cricketing legend of the late eighties and early nineties. A right handed run machine opening batsman with lightning reflexes at short leg, Boonie was never one to take a backward step when the going was tough.

Now a Cricket Australia selector, head of the Cricket Department at Tasmanian Cricket and a talking plastic doll icon for VB beer, Boonie's dry wit and clever repertoire keep audiences mesmerized and looking back fondly on an era full of characters in the sport of cricket.
