Former Australian cricketer Michael Bevan gave a stunning public appearance two days ago. Michael Bevan retired from international cricket in 2004 after an illustrious 10-year career. After entertaining the fans on the field, the left-handed batsman did that by participating in a popular Australian show, Masked Singer. It was the second season of the show.
Michael Bevan sang the song “Working class man” composed by Jimmy Barnes, leaving the audience and judges awestruck by his singing skills. The committee of jury comprised of singer Danni Minogue, comedian Dave Hughes, radio host Jackie O and comedian Urzila Carlson. Bevan was one of the 12 contestants to partake in the second season of the famous show.
The official Twitter account of the show wrote the caption as “SPOILERS! Hammerhead revealed in 3… 2… 1! #MaskedSingerAU”. When asked the retired cricketer on the pressure of performing on the stage, he mentioned that it feels different from playing on a cricket field and remarked “good at one thing, not good at another”.
Below is the clip of Michael Bevan’s participation in the show:

Michael Bevan was one of the greatest limited-overs batsmen to ever grace the game and defined the term “finisher”. He was part of many scintillating run-chases and batted with the tailenders on several occasions to lead his side to victory out of nowhere.
A vital cog of Australia’s victory in the 1999 and 2003 World Cup, the Canberra-born cricketer, played 232 ODIs, scoring 6912 runs at 53.58. Nevertheless, Bevan’s Test career spanned across only 18 Tests in which he managed only 785 runs at 29.07 alongside six half-centuries.
