When Nova 93.7 Perth’s breakfast team Nathan, Nat and Shaun interviewed Perth Scorchers player Mitch Marsh, he challenged Nathan to be on the receiving end of one of his 120-130kmph fast bowls.
Yesterday morning, Nathan came out on top, hitting Marsh for a four and not being bowled out. He met the challenge after concern about his welfare, as facing a fast ball unprepared can be a dangerous task. However, after donning much padding he succeeded in his attempt to remain in, although not without injury after Marsh’s first ball hit two of Nathan’s fingers and by the fourth ball, blood began seeping through his white gloves.
Nathan said: “You can take the kid out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the kid.”
