Walter shines for Brisbane Heat in their latest win


Paul Walter continued to make a name for himself on the big stage by starring for the Brisbane Heat in their latest BBL win over Melbourne Renegades.

In a match pulsating with cricketing fireworks, Paul Walter emerged as the pivotal force in Brisbane Heat’s commanding win over the Renegades at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne.

It was Walter’s remarkable all-round game that anchored Heat’s clinical victory, recording figures of 3/27 off his four overs.

While Renegades rode high on an explosive half-century Jake Fraser-McGurk’s, Heat faced a stumbling start at 45/3. Walter’s impact wasn’t limited to his exploits with the ball with his blazing cameo of 30 runs off 15 deliveries during the run chase showcased his all-round brilliance, sealing Heat’s triumph in style with 11 balls to spare.

His selection by Heat in the BBL draft has proved to be a masterstroke, as his clever bowling variations and crucial wickets dismantled Renegades’ resistance, notably claiming the dismissals of Aaron Finch and Will Sutherland.

Walter’s new Eagles teammate, Jordan Cox did not feature for the Renegades due to the return of Quinton de Kock, whilst Essex Batting Coach Mick Lewis was also looking on from the opposition dressing room.

Elsewhere, another notable innings was from our 2023 overseas player Beau Webster became the first player in BBL history to take 4+ wickets and score 50+ runs with the bat. Webster, who plays for the Melbourne Stars, struck 59 and took 4/29 from his four overs and came up against Sydney Thunder’s Daniel Sams, who he himself took 4/33 and secured the win for his side with 22*.
