Born in 1971, Stuart MacGill made his international debut for Australia in January 1998 against South Africa at the Adelaide Oval. He was considered a great talent, but unfortunately, because of Shane Warne, the cricketer never got enough opportunities to represent the national team.
Talking about the same, MacGill opened up by saying that when they used to travel to hot and humid countries like Sri Lanka, the duo used to mix Vodka with Gatorade and drink after the stumps.
“It’s very, very important for all you young players out there to hydrate when you’re playing in hot weather, and so I found vodka and Gatorade – really, really, it’s very, very good,” McGill said on the 82 Days Till The Ashes podcast.
“Tips like, yeah, Warney, don’t worry about the line, just go straight to the front, that barman always gives you the odd cheeky shot, that sort of stuff, those were the sort of tips that we operated on. We did actually talk a lot in South Africa as well, do go out in Johannesburg, don’t go out in Durban – “detox Durban”, we called it. That was the sort of conversation that we normally had. Not much cricket, to be honest,” MacGill stated.
