|Only Test||Australia v England at Adelaide, Jan 31-Feb 6, 1947 scorecard|
|First-class span||1940/41 - 1948/49|
Mervyn Roye Harvey, who died on March 20, 1995, aged 76, was the eldest of four brothers who all played first-class cricket for Victoria. The most famous, Neil, said that Merv was the most talented of the four. Merv Harvey was a free-scoring right-handed opening bat whose opportunities were severely restricted by the war. When it ended he was 27, but he got his chance against England in 1946-47. After scoring a three-hour 136 for Victoria against New South Wales, he was picked for the Adelaide Test in place of the injured Sid Barnes. He did quite well, though not in his normal style, and scored 31 in the second innings, sharing a stand of 116 with Arthur Morris, who was on his way to his second hundred of the match. That was not enough for Harvey to keep his place. In 22 first-class matches he hit 1,147 runs at 38.23 with three centuries. He captained Victoria five times.
