Steketee takes ten in A-Grade cricket

IT is only the start of the cricket season but Warwick paceman Mark Steketee has already taken 10 wickets in Brisbane A-grade cricket this season.

After taking three wickets for Souths in the first game of the season, Steketee took four in a one-day match against Sunshine Coast.

Last Saturday, he took two wickets against Norths. He bowled Test player Nathan Hauritz, a spinner who has shown plenty of class with the bat at Test and state level.

Steketee played for the Blaze team in a T20 game last Sunday and took 0-19 off his two overs.

He was given the ball when Chris Lynn was around 50. Lynn went on to score 83 off 38 balls in the Flames win.

Steketee said he was enjoying the experience for the Blaze.

He plays in the same Souths and Blaze team as star Queensland all-rounder Ben Cutting.

"Ben plays for the Bulls and gives me a few hints on how to bowl to certain batsmen," Steketee said.

After playing for the second-placed Australian team in the recent under-19 World Cup in Townsville, Steketee is a strong chance of selection in this season's Queensland U19 side to play in the nationals in Adelaide in January.
