Warwick paceman takes his wicket tally to six in BBL

CRICKET: With six wickets in three BBL games this season, Warwick paceman Mark Steketee is odds on to again take the new ball for the Brisbane Heat in the 6.10pm game against the Sydney Sixers at the Gabba on Tuesday night.

Steketee took 2-29 in the Brisbane win against Hobart on Friday night when he dismissed both openers.

He now has six wickets for 79 runs in three games at an economy rate of around six and a half runs an over, much less than the average runs conceded by Heat bowlers this season.

After being one of the batsmen at the wicket with Chris Lynn when the Heat beat the Thunder midweek, Steketee could watch from the stands when Lynn took his score to an unbeaten 84 off 50 balls to secure a seven-wicket win against Hobart on Friday night.

Meanwhile in the WBBL, Delissa Kimmince will captain the Fire in games at 2pm tomorrow and Tuesday against the Sydney Thunder at the Blacktown Sports Centre.
