Newbery Cricket Interview: Matt Machan February 23 2016
Before jetting off to the ICC World T20 in India, Matt dropped by the showroom last week to meet Newbery fans and take part in a special Twitter Q&A, taking questions about the Quantum, his technique and his opponents.
Read on to see all of Matt’s answers.
Q: How much time you spend training on power hitting, or is it more technique training?
Matt: It is a mix between power hitting and technique. At the moment it’s more power hitting, getting ready for the ICC World T20 in India.
Q: Who is the best bowler you have ever faced?
Matt: Mitchell Starc during last year's T20 World Cup - unbelievably quick!
Q: How similar are the Quantum and the Blitz, and why did you choose Quantum?
Q: How heavy is your actual bat and how different is it from the SS bats you have been using?
Matt: My actual bat is a 2.9 Quantum. The main difference is the bat-makers at Newbery - they make the best bats I have ever used!
Q: What is the best sledge you have ever had?
Matt: That is a bit too rude for Twitter, but I can tell you that it was from an Australian in the last World Cup!
Q: Who is the most talented player you’ve played with and against?
Matt: The most talented I played with is Mahela Jayawardene. The most talented I played against has to be Sachin Tendulkar.
Q: Would you use the Quantum in other cricket formats or solely T20?
Matt: I will be using the Quantum in all formats.
