Bulls to blood young Buchanan

The eldest son of Australia coach John Buchanan is set to continue his family's cricketing tradition with the Queensland Bulls.

The eldest son of Australia coach John Buchanan is set to continue his family's cricketing tradition with the Queensland Bulls.

Alln rounder Michael Buchanan, 22, is a strong chance to debut for the Bulls in Friday's night's Twenty20 match against Tasmania at the Gabba, or the away clash against NSW on Sunday.

The Brisbane fitness instructor will be following in the footsteps of his father, an all rounder who played seven times for Queensland from 1978-79.

But the young Buchanan says he is not a chip off the old block.

"Everyone knows Dad is very analytical and I think we fell from different trees in that regard," Buchanan said. "

"I rely a lot on instinct. I like to make sure I'm prepared well but then I back myself and use my instincts."

"I try not to complicate things."
