Paul Walter and Brisbane Heat reach BBL Final


There’s no doubt about it when people say it’s been a debut Big Bash tournament to remember for ‘Tall’ Paul Walter.

His side Brisbane Heat have reached the final which takes place on Wednesday 24 January at the SCG against Sydney Sixers.

It’s with the ball in hand where Walter has made a big impression, taking 16 wickets at an average of just 16.68, with only teammate Xavier Bartlett taking more wickets than the 6ft 7in all-rounder.

Walter has become somewhat of a cult hero out in Queensland after showcasing his high-level bowling and most importantly his now famous airplane celebration which the Heat fans have grown to love.

‘Tall Paul’ made such a big impact that he was also named in the BBL13 Team of the Tournament. Alongside his incredible bowling, Paul scored 93 runs and took four catches along the way.

Everyone at Essex wishes Paul all the best in the Final tomorrow!
