He's just helped the Western Bulldogs to their fairytale AFL premiership, and now could Tom Liberatore be about to lift Australia's cricketers out of the mire in South Africa?

A YouTube interview with the Bulldogs' star on the boundary of the MCG after Saturday's grand final against Sydney has not gone unnoticed by Australia's touring cricket team.

In the impomptu chat with the fan, Liberatore says he's just won an Ashes Test match.

"I made a hundred," Liberatore says with his premiership medal draped around his neck.

The 24-year-old then says he scored his runs off former Australia Test player Colin Miller.

Australia batsman George Bailey is clearly intrigued, and says the team is hopeful Liberatore can touch base with them ahead of their must-win third one-day international against the Proteas in Durban on Wednesday.

"He seems to have been locked away the last couple of days, he's been very hard to get hold of," Bailey said.

"We're desperate to hear from Libba, so mate, I know you're having a Mad Monday, as you should be, with the rest of the boys but we need your help. Any tips would be greatly appreciated."
