Chris Tremain has a secret weapon when he’s bowling.
“I don’t know where the ball is going, so what hope does the batsman have??” he jokes.
Chris first started playing cricket when he was six-years-old after a girl who he had a crush on also started bowling in the nets.
A big ACT Brumbies fan, Chris played plenty of rugby himself as a junior, however, his representative career was quickly curtailed when one of his coaches asked him “where do you see yourself in 10 years? Chris was a little too quick to reply “playing cricket” and was never selected again!
Growing up in Yeoval in western NSW, Chris enjoyed plenty of battles on the field with a former NSW rookie, now Western Australian player, Tim Armstrong, and used his Grandfather’s stories on his own sporting career as motivation to forge his own.
This is Chris’ second season with the Sydney Thunder. He played five matches, taking six wickets at an average of 26.00. He’s also showed some ability to bash a few runs at the end of an innings, bludgeoning an entertaining 37 not out against the Melbourne Renegades.
