Steketee shines for team

MARK Steketee was the best bowler for the Queensland Academy of Sport team in the Western Australian Second XI second innings in a Toyota Futures Competition game at AET Richardson Park, Perth, yesterday.

Batting first, Queensland made 350 and dismissed Western Australia for 192. Queensland then made 137 in its second innings to give Western Australia a realistic chance of victory.

Late on the third day, Steketee rocked Western Australia taking wickets in his 19th and 21st over to have the home side 2-22. Both batsmen were caught, one by Bulls regular Chris Lynn.

At the end of the third day, Steketee had 2-13 off 12 overs.

Yesterday, the floodgates opened for the Western Australia batsmen as the side recovered to score 5-296 for a victory just after tea.

Steketee finished with 2-57 off 22 overs, including six maidens.

His mother Debbie said Mark stated early in the game that the wicket was good to bat on.
