Former Australian test cricketer Stuart MacGill was kidnapped by a suspected criminal group and held as a ransom, NSW police claim.
MacGill was abducted at gunpoint from Cremorne on Sydney’s Lower North Shore about two weeks ago. He is believed to have been badly attacked during the kidnapping before he was released.
Police are searching a number of homes this morning in connection with the alleged extortion and arrests are expected.
As a leg spinner, he succeeded Australia’s biggest wicket taker Shane Warne and took 208 test wickets.
MacGill grew up in Perth and began playing professional cricket for Western Australia in 1993. He moved to Sydney to pursue his career and was a major pillar on the New South Wales cricket team from 1996 to 2008.
