COLIN 'FUNKY' MILLER


Australia From the flag of Colin 'Funky' Miller Australian Test Cricketer

Well, what can be said about the Sparrow? I first saw this guy in "Rawalpindi, Pakistan" on my first tour with the test team. At the end of the first day Luke and his mate Bradley (Wooding) were out on the ground kicking a footy around. I mentioned to a few of the boys that these two must be lost, to be watching a test in Pakistan, only to be told that "Oh no they're not mad or lost. Thats Lukey Sparrow"

I think it was at the end of that test Australias 1st test win in35 years in Pakistan that Lukey was right there when I first sang the victory song of the Aussie Cricket team. And bugger me Sparrow was at every test match I played for the next 4 years.

Sri Lanka was where, if I remember rightly, Lukey said to me one day that this is the last time I tour with you boys, as he gently itched at his bed bug riddled body. And I still have the shell casings from the shooting range up in the Kyber Pass given to me by Luke (they landed on him, when ejected from my rifle, as he lay on the mat next to me), as he was there again as the locals offered some VIP treatment.

NewZealand, Zimbabwe, the West Indies, India. You name the place and no matter how far we travelled Luke and his well worn Bat and Flag were right there with us, bloody hell, he knew where we were going before we did.

Lukey has now passed the 100 test mark, and his support on those long lonesome overseas tours that no one wanted to go on was much appreciated by the boys in the team. Luke has been there and done that in every cricketing nation on the face of the earth. If Sparrow doesn't know were to have a beer at night or where to pick up a feed at any of these places then no one does.

Lukey has been the unofficial team member for years now, and a tour with Sparrow and The Flag is definitely one of the things I will do myself one of these days.

All the best, stay Funky!!
