Riverside Cricket Club.

What got you into cricket?

My old man Adam, who has played for the club for 25+ years.

How long have you played cricket?

11 years. ​

What is your role in the team?

I'm good for a drop catch every week so the boys feel better about themselves with me in the team.

What is your most important attribute?

I've got the best straight drive at the club so that's pretty handy batting at nine, other than that all the boys get quick service when I'm working at the pub.

The old man Adam, his work for the club and his 100 ball knocks for 23 not out are something pretty special.

I Ran – A Flock of Seagulls.

If someone had to play you in a movie, who would it be and why?

Brett Lee, our cricket abilities are pretty similar.

How would you spend a million dollars?

I'd start by buying Locky Elliott a car worth more than $500 so I don't have to keep giving him lifts, followed by some property investments.

If you could have dinner with anyone from history, dead or alive, who would it be?

Steven Gerrard to talk about that night in Istanbul.

If you could have any four people with you in a deserted island, who would they be and why?

I’d take Knoxy to have a bloke to beat in fantasy, Dylan Brennan because he thinks hes pretty big which may be handy, Bear Grylls, speaks for himself, and I’d probably take Shannon, just in case she reads this.

Any pre-match rituals?

Just breakfast and a beer with the breakfast club at cricket.
