Sixers' Feldman out to lay down law in BBL

When Big Bash League franchise bosses talk of negotiating player releases, it usually involves foreign cricket boards and associated red tape.

For Sydney Sixers' general manager Stuart Clark, his pursuit of paceman Luke Feldman was aided by a well-worded letter to the Queensland Police Service to secure the 28-year-old officer during the busy festive period.

"Stuart wrote a lovely letter that went straight to the Commissioner, so that always helps," Feldman said.

"When it's going from the top down, instead of me trying to go up the chain of command, that helps.

"I've got a six-week hiatus at the moment from work."

Feldman is a throwback to a bygone era, juggling a full-time job as a policeman with a blossoming cricket career with Queensland - all with a full-bodied moustache.

Feldman, whose father has had more than 30 years in the police force, is a proud constable and wouldn't have it any other way.

"I'm still working full-time," said Feldman, who only launched his career with the Queensland Bulls when he stopped walking the beat in Charters Towers to take a desk job in Brisbane.

Feldman snared figures of 2-19 to be the Sixers' best bowler in their Big Bash opener against cross-town rivals the Thunder last weekend.

He said he felt "privileged" to be part of the Sixers.

It's a level-headed approach from somebody who is the odd man out in the Sixers' squad in more ways than one.

"It actually hasn't been too bad. I thought I might catch a disease when I first crossed the border," said Queenslander Feldman - a passionate supporter of the NRL's North Queensland Cowboys - of his temporary move to NSW.

"No, everything's been fantastic since I've been down here and they've really looked after me.

"There's been some good rugby league banter.

"Everyone's telling me JT (Johnathan Thurston) is going to leave Queensland and come down here, but I don't think I will."
