In our second episode for the 2022/23 season, we are joined by special guest Heather Graham from the Hobart Hurricanes.

Heather who is one of only three players in the 100 wicket / 1000 run club in the WBBL, shares with us the origins of her passion for cricket and reflects on the key ingredients to the successful teams she has been a part of.

She speaks about what is ahead for the Hurricanes, looks back on winning the WBBL in her 100th game and how much it would mean to the players to send coach Dan Marsh out a winner.

Robbie and Matt run their eye over some of the key performances in the Australian Men’s Domestic summer to date and the ever popular Tabbsy’s Take segment returns after receiving plenty of plaudits following the world premiere of the segment last week.

Cricket Library Weekly Returns For 2022/23

The Cricket Library Weekly returns for season 2022/23 with Robbie Mackinlay and Matt Ellis back to digest all of the cricket talking points each week throughout the summer.

In the first edition of the new season, the lads share their thoughts on the WNCL and WBBL competitions, with some high-quality cricket being played in the early stages of the competitions.

Airing for the first time in an exclusive for the Cricket Library is a brand new segment, ‘Tabbsy’s Take’, where our resident librarian in Orange shares his take on the stats that have caught his eye each week. This is sure to become a favourite with loyal members of the cricket library community. This week there is a bit of a World T20 flavour, with Tabbsy leaving listeners with some homework before next week’s program.

Finally, Robbie and Matt run their eye over some of the key performances in the Australian Men’s Domestic summer to date.

Congratulations to former guest on the Cricket Library Podcast Katie Mack who has won her third consecutive Bronwyn Calver Medal for Meteors player of the year at the 2021 ACT Cricket Awards.

It is a testament to her skill & commitment as well as her desire to get the best out of herself. At the Cricket Library we are thrilled to see her receive this honour.

Well done Katie Mack!

The Mack and Kershaw show

Katie Mack and Erica Kershaw have helped lead the ACT to victory in their final WNCL game of the season. Kershaw finished with a well made 52 while Mack playing her 50th WNCL game was dismissed just five runs short of a century.

Katie had a magnificent season with the willow finishing with 418 runs for the season with a very healthy average of 59.71.

Erica and Katie were both very popular guests on the Cricket Library Podcast last year.

Milestone for Mack as she approaches 50 WNCL games

Katie Mack has had a stellar start to the WNCL season sitting on top of the leading run scorers list for the Abode Hotels ACT Meteors with 323 runs which puts her third of all the batters in the WNCL competition this summer. She has flourished at the top of the order setting a solid platform for her team with consistent contributions.

A regular in the Meteors line up for some time now, Katie will register her 50th game in the WNCL this weekend when she lines up against the Scorpions.

She was a highly popular guest on the Cricket Library Podcast last year with fellow meteor Erica Kershaw. You can hear more of their stories here.
