Luke Feldman is an Australian cricketer who plays for the Queensland Bulls. He is the son of former Queensland One Nation party leader Bill Feldman.[1] He was a policeman in the North Qld country towns of Charters Towers and Innisfail. [2] and drove to play club cricket in Townsville and Cairns comps before returning to fulfill his duties as a policeman after the game. After some strong performances he was offered a place in the Queensland Academy.[3]

He made his Sheffield Shield debut against the Victorian Bushrangers at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. During the match, he made a mid-night arrest after an intruder came into his hotel room. By that stage he'd already bowled Nick Jewell and was soon wreaking more havoc on the Victorian team. Since then he has improved by gaining match figures of 9 for 81 against the New South Wales Blues.

Feldman played a key role in a rare "tied" draw between Queensland and Victoria in the 2011–12 Sheffield Shield season. Batting at number 11 and needing two runs to win off the last ball of the match, Feldman scored a single. He did not attempt a second run; had he done so and succeeded, Queensland would have won the match; had he done so and failed, the match would have been a tie as opposed to a draw, and both teams would have earnt three points for the match as opposed to two.[4]
