JP Inglis Take A Bow

Josh Inglis has been lighting up the Vitality T20 Blast with exceptional returns in the regular season of the competition.

The wicket keeper batsman from WA has been in career best form, plundering attacks to all parts of the ground.

He is one of many high quality wicket keeper batsmen in the domestic ranks at the moment and certainly reminding us all of his talents this English summer.

Alister McDermott – Special Guest on the Cricket Library Podcast

Alister McDermott grew up on the Gold Coast of Queensland enjoying a range of sports with cricket just one of his passions.

While he was still at school he secured a contract with Queensland, initially making his debut in T20 cricket before making his way into the One Day team and First Class side where he would make his debut against the West Indies.

An Australian u-19 representative, McDermott was part of a winning World Cup team playing under the captaincy of Mitch Marsh in a side including the likes of Josh Hazlewood, Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa.

Alister had success at senior level also playing in the Brisbane Heat’s BBL02 Championship winning team, claiming a One Day Domestic title for Queensland and an influential 6 wicket haul in a Sheffield Shield winning team, including the big wicket of Ricky Ponting.

Along with the successes he enjoyed, Alister has had to overcome set backs, including being left off the Queensland contracted players list, working his way back into the squad before experiencing a career ending injury.

He is now thriving in his studies to become a teacher and in his coaching work at the Alister McDermott Cricket Academy and Wynnum Manly Cricket Club.

Wayne Holdsworth Ashes Tour Hat Trick

On July 14, 1993 Wayne Holdsworth wrote his name in the history books claiming a hat trick whilst playing for Australia against Derbyshire on the 1993 Ashes tour.

Day One had not gone to plan for Wayne with the ball as he reflected to Matt Ellis on the Cricket Library Podcast.

Yeah that’s another interesting story because I think the day before I had one for, I think it was seventy or eighty off nine or ten overs, so I was getting hit all over the place and I remember sitting at the bar with Steve Waugh that night and he said what did you think? And I said well I can’t bowl any worse, he said yeah I agree so he said let’s have a beer and we had a couple of beers. The next day I bowled this massive booming outswinger, I thought that’s a bit weird, I didn’t do that yesterday. Then I took four wickets in the next 15 balls or something with the hat trick so it was a complete turn around from one day to the next day and I finished with five for a hundred or something but the unfortunate thing was for the guy who was the hat trick wicket was that he actually didn’t hit it and I’ve got video highlights of Tim Zoehrer taking the catch and he sort of goes to try and throw it to first slip and then you see him just look straight back at the umpire and then everyone starts patting me on the back and I remember the umpire behind me go yes that’s out and the guy had hit his pad and it was one of those ones where you go he either hit it or he didn’t but I could see that he probably didn’t hit it but the poor guy was given out and I got a hat trick and you know you take the good with the bad, there’s other balls I bowled where I probably got guys out and given not out. The funny part was Allan Border walked up with the ball and he said you are not going to keep this ball are you and I said well what do you do when you get a hundred and he went yeah good point.”
