With a nickname that flows like his action, Mark ‘Speedy’ Steketee is one of Queensland’s ripe supply of right-arm fast bowlers.
A former national youth player (representing the Queensland Under-17, 19 and Australia Under-19 teams) Steketee played for the Queensland Academy of Sport 2nd XI squad that won the Toyota Futures League last season. On the back of his performances, he was announced as the Queensland Academy of Sport Player of the Year.
Stekers made a stellar start to his career as a Queensland Bulls, taking 4-29 and man of the match honours as the Bulls crushed the Victorian Bushrangers in the Matador Cup.
Starting well seems to be a consistent theme with Mark after he took a wicket in his first over for the Brisbane Heat, while he also claimed seven wickets in his first-class debut for the Bulls.
