Malcolm Conn is a New Zealand born cricket journalist who was the News Corp chief cricket writer.[1][2]

Conn won a Walkley Award in 1999 for his coverage of the John the bookmaker controversy involving Australian cricketers Shane Warne and Mark Waugh.[3]

Conn is renowned in journalistic circles for his expert use of the literary technique, "brutal irony". Conn is known for his catchphrase "Strewth!", usually coupled with a statement that will come back to haunt him in the most dramatic way possible the next day. Conn cites Shakespeare for his love of this comedic tragedy.
