If anyone watched the All*Stars Twenty20 match on Sunday night you may have noticed the Johnnie Walker 12th Man.
Dave Cameron from the Gold Coast won the incredible opportunity to be 12th Man for some of the biggest legends in cricket, including Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist, Matthew Hayden and Glenn McGrath, as part of the Johnnie Walker ACA All*Stars team.
Dave and 19 other finalists were flown to Brisbane on Friday to be put through their paces in a series of batting, bowling and fielding tests in the nets at the GABBA to prove to the judging panel that they had what it took to win the 12th man spot. But, in the end, it was Dave that proved to judges (Darren Lehmann, Damien Fleming, and Chief Executive of the ACA, Paul Marsh) that he was their man.
As part of his prize, Dave got to train with the Johnnie Walker ACA All*Stars Team on Saturday, stay with them in their hotel, be presented with the team kit and perform 12th man duties during the match last night. He also got to go to a *****y cocktail party with all the players and their partners.
