Test your bowling pace by radar
GYMPIE cricketers who think they have a fast arm and the makings of the next Brett Lee are being given a unique chance to go under the radar gun.
The Queensland Cricket Pace Bowling Road Show visits the Gympie region next Tuesday.
It is the second year the road show has been conducted, with Queensland bowling coach Joe Dawes, Bulls left-arm quick Scott Walter and Queensland Cricket talent manager Vic Williams preparing to visit Gladstone, Gympie, Kingaroy and Warwick next week.
The sessions are free and open to under-13, 14, 15, 16 and open cricketers, with a $50 gift voucher courtesy of Australia Post going to the fastest bowler in each category.
All participants need to do is turn up at the One Mile Ovals at 3.30pm with their running shoes.
The session is predicted to finish about 5pm.

12 years: 97kmh (Karl Gimbel, Toowoomba)
13 years: 109kmh (Lucas Sumpter, Mackay)
14 years: 109kmh (Hamish Davidson, Rockhampton)
