Cricket - Tim Ludeman Interview

February 29, 2020

Tim Ludeman was an accomplished First Class and short format cricketer who represented South Australia, Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades throughout a career that consisted of 47 First Class matches, 36 List A Games and 55 T20 appearances.

His best work with the gloves came in the 2012/13 summer for South Australia where he claimed 47 dismissals for the season. With the bat, Ludeman impressed with two shield tons to his name & a magnificent 167 against the touring South African side in 2016.

He famously lit up the Big Bash with an electrifying 92 not out off 44 balls for the Adelaide Strikers against the highly fancied Melbourne Stars. 

In this episode of the Cricket Library Podcast, we find out there is much more to the Tim Ludeman story as we ask him about where his passion for the game started, his mover from country Victoria to Melbourne and then across to Adelaide and back to Melbourne where he is currently coaching Geelong.

Of course, we will also find out the answer to our regular question as to which three people he would most like to have a net with.

We trust you will thoroughly enjoy our latest instalment of the Cricket Library Podcast with our special guest Tim Ludeman.
