Columnist tips Steketee will learn from new skipper
HOWZAT with Michael Bourke
WARWICK'S Mark Steketee bowled a superb last over for the Brisbane Heat on Wednesday night to help his side defeat the Adelaide Strikers.
Steketee could have had five wickets had it not been for two easy catches that were dropped off his bowling.
Having captain Brendon McCullum in the side as an explosive batsman at the top of the order is not only great for Brisbane Heat fans but will surely help Steketee learn more about the game of cricket.
LAST week I had the pleasure to be able to attend the third day of the Test match between Australia and Pakistan at the Gabba.
The highlights off the field were the pool deck and Sandy Point areas. Spectators in the pool deck area were able to have a swim and watch the cricket at the same time.
Sandy Point was outside the Gabba but still within the premises and involved an outdoor beach area
with live entertainment and a large television screen, and was an enjoyable experience.
ON the field I was surprised at Steve Smith's bold declaration in his side's second innings with still seven sessions remaining on a flat pitch, which nearly came back to bite the Aussies with a loss.
For the Aussies it was David Warner's athleticism in the field that amazed
me, which included Warner chasing three balls to the boundary in the one over.
