Australian cricketer, who represented Australia in Test matches from early 1991 to late 2002, and made his One-Day International debut in 1988. Waugh is regarded as one of the most elegant and gifted stroke makers to ever play the game.

Waugh is often nicknamed "Junior" as he is younger than his twin brother Steve by a few minutes. He was also dubbed "Afghan" by the media as he was "the forgotten Waugh". Dean Waugh, another of Mark's brothers, is also a cricketer, having played first-class and list A cricket in Australia.

In 2005, Waugh was acknowledged for his services to cricket when he was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).

He now works as a sports journalist for the Sydney Morning Herald, and is a Channel Ten cricket commentator and formerly a Fox Sports commentator and has also worked for Channel Seven show Sportsworld and as a Tour Guide for Australian Sports Tours.

He married Sydney Cup-winning thoroughbred trainer Kim Waugh (née Moore) on 9 April 2005.
