Mike Whitney is in the fantastic position of making people achieve way beyond they're known abilities. Mike has asked the most feared question in Australian television history! As host of "Who Dares Wins", Mike has made normal Australians do some of the most unthinkable acts.

One of Mike's career highlights occurred in 1981 when he was seconded from the Gloucester County Side to join the touring Australian side and played two tests in that English Tour.

Mike was to go on and represent his country in West Indies, Sri Lanka, England, New Zealand and Zimbabwe.

Other statistics on his career are as follows:

  • Held a record of having the best figures of an Australian 7/27 v India in Perth 1991-92
  • Retired at February 1994, 12 x Test, 118 1st Class matches (taking 412 wickets at 26) and 39 One Day Internationals.
  • Mike has an all-encompassing style when speaking. His story telling & humour ensure a memorable time.
