Enjoyed a stunning debut season in which he bashed 397 runs, the first century in Heat history, and laid the platform for the BBL|02 title.

And he did it all after missing the first month of the cricket season with a broken hand.

The former West Australian slotted in seamlessly to the Heat squad, proving a popular team man and leading from the front with his aggression.

Used down the order in all forms of the game for most of his career, he was promoted to open by coach Darren Lehmann and produced devastating results.

Pomers set up the thrilling win in Adelaide with a dynamite 65 off 39 balls, belted 82 off 42 balls in the virtual elimination final in Hobart, and pounded 112 not out against the Renegades in the semi-final.

His fearless attack on the bowling set the tone for the Heat.

Pomers has a proven record in the IPL, impressing in stints with the King's XI Punjab in 2008 and 2009, and the Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2011 and 2012.

It was from there that he was highly recommended to the Heat by none other than Kiwi international Daniel Vettori.

Pomers had a ‘boys own’ introduction to international cricket in December 2007. As he arrived at the WACA to watch Australia play New Zealand, he received an urgent SOS to get to the Australian dressing-rooms where Brad Hodge had suffered a back spasm while getting dressed to play.

He loves fishing and since relocating to Brisbane from Perth, has been keen to explore the local waters and fishing hot spots as often as possible. He and boyhood friends from Perth have also launched a casual clothing range – St Freddes that offers trucker hats, shorts and other laidback apparel.

A punishing batsman when he gets going - and how! Strong down the ground and square of the wicket, he set the standard for us in our charge to the title. Stuart Law
