1st Innings launch

The Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Sport, the Honorable Terry Mackenroth, will launch Queensland Cricket's latest coaching innovation tomorrow in the Ian Healy Room at QCHQ.

"1st Innings" is a CD-Rom based coaching resource that will be distributed to all schools in Queensland to assist teachers and students with learning more about cricket and how to play the game.

The free CD-Rom was created by Queensland Cricket's Game Development Department in conjunction with Go-Print and Cutting Edge Interactive.

The interactive CD-Rom features segments by current Queensland and Australian players including Jimmy Maher, Andrew Symonds, Ashley Noffke, Nathan Hauritz, Wade Seccombe, James Hopes, Brendan Nash, Australia women's youth player Belinda Matheson and Konica Queensland Fire coach Joanne Broadbent.

The CD-Rom is a first for cricket in Australia.
