FORMER Australian test cricketers Craig McDermott, Rodney Hogg and Matthew Elliott will play in the Australian Cricketers' Association Masters tour of Stawell later this month.
The cricket greats will be in Stawell between October 24 and 26, the highlight of which will be an action-packed twenty20 match against a Grampians Cricket Association representative team on October 25 at Central Park.
McDermott took 291 test wickets as a spearhead of the Australian attack before becoming the national bowling coach.
He is credited with the development of bowlers such as Peter Siddle, Pat Cummins, James Pattinson and Mitchell Starc.
Hogg another fiery fast-bowler played 38 tests and 71 one day internationals for Australia, taking 208 wickets, which included six five-wicket hauls.
He is now a popular radio personality.
A veteran of 214 first-class matches, Elliott played for South Australia and Victoria, making 50 centuries at first-class level, including three tons during his 21-test career.
Elliott, an exquisite timer of the ball, was named one of Wisden's five cricketers of the year in 1998.
Canadian World Cup representative John Davison, who was made famous for scoring the then-fastest hundred in World Cup history in 2003 off 67 balls against West Indies has also been selected, along with former Australian and Tasmanian quick Brett Geeves.
Former Queensland and Victorian left-hander Matthew Mott is another who has put his hand up to play.
Mott, who was NSW's head coach for four years and is currently head of elite performance with Glamorgan, scored seven first-class centuries in 66 matches.
