Missing stumping is Cows fanatics worst moment

CRICKET: Nathan Costello will play in his 17th Australia Day Cricket Carnival for the Palace Cows on January 21-22.

He has a best score of 24 not out at Warwick East State School No.2 batting at No.10.

Costello lists numbers nine or 10 as his favourite batting spots but he did open against regular winners Stunned Mullets in one game.

"Rod Hansen got me out, I top edged a short pitched ball and was caught on the boundary at Dunning Oval,” he said.

Our Batting Bunny for the day answers some questions.

Have many ducks in your career: I can't keep track of that, let's say six.

Where do you train: With the Palace Hotel closed, we don't have a Friday night training venue as yet. But we will find a training venue.

We have our first naming rights sponsor since the Palace so are now the Saturn Electrical Palace Cows.

Best moment: It was in club cricket when I had a 50-run partnership with my brother Darren. I made six of the 50 but I loved it.

Best shot: None.

Favourite Bunny: I would have to go with retired Australian paceman Glenn McGrath. It was amazing when he scored a half century at the Gabba.

Silliest moment: I was keeping against Stunned Mullets and came up with a plan with bowler Darren Grayson to get Dean Butler stumped. It worked but I fumbled, Dean survived and went from 50 odd to 120 odd in the next few overs.

Odds to win carnival: 50,000 to one if in competitive grade, 20 to one if in social grade.
