Who is Cricketer Stuart MacGill?

Stuart Charles Glyndwr MacGill aka Stuart MacGill is an Australian former cricketer who played 44 Test matches and three One Day Internationals for the Australian national cricket team. He is a right-arm leg spin bowler, who has been credited with having the best strike rate of any modern leg-spin bowler, but he did not have a regular place in the Australian Test team due to the dominance of Shane Warne in the position of sole spinner. His bowling was slightly slower through the air than Warne’s, but he was a prodigious turner of the ball.

“Stripped Me Naked, Beat Me Up”: Stuart MacGill Opens Up On His Alleged Kidnapping Last Year

Former Australia spinner Stuart MacGill was involved in an incident last year where he was allegedly kidnapped. However, the alleged kidnappers — two brothers — have claimed that Macgill came to them willingly and was involved in the drug trade. As per Fox Sports, the brothers named Richard and Fredrick Schaaf alleged in court that MacGill had gone to the abandoned southwestern Sydney property willingly.

“I am from Perth originally so still I am not familiar with large parts of Sydney. It was the longest hour and a half of my life. I didn’t know where we were, I didn’t know where we were going and I was scared. From that point, they stripped me naked, beat me up, threatened me, and then just dumped me. That was over the course of maybe three hours out in the middle of nowhere in a little shed. I was scared, humiliated, I really did not know what was going to happen. They dropped me in Belmore, I did not know where I was, to be honest, I was just very lucky as I found a very helpful cab driver and he offered me to eat with his family. He was a very nice fellow,” he added.
