WARWICK paceman Mark Steketee is bowling faster and faster at the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Townsville according to Australian coach Stuart Law.

"Mark has exceeded our expectations," Law said.

"He has bowled beautifully but the results are not showing. Batsmen are playing hook shots against him and the ball is going over the keeper's head for four.

"Mark is getting better and better in each game and he is putting our plans into place. If he carries on doing what he is doing, the wickets will come."

Law said Steketee was the fastest bowler in the Australian squad of 15 and one of the fastest of the tournament.

"If he keeps believing and keeps bowling his heart out, it will turn for him."

On Saturday in the quarter final, Steketee took 1-37 off 10 overs, his fourth wicket in three games, as Australia won by five wickets.

Law confirmed Steketee would be in the 11 for the semi-final showdown with South Africa today.
