On Saturday the 1st XI return to Mill Hill Road for the final time this season, in what should be the penultimate game of this years adapted league format, as we welcome local rivals Old Parkonians CC.
After last week's fantastic victory against Malpas the 1st XI make just two changes, Andy Leigh returns to the 1st XI and Casey Sawley comes in to make his 1st XI debut. The team are looking to build on last weeks excellent showing and to finish the season strongly, with all eyes looking ahead to the 2021 campaign.
The full squad is as follows: Garrett (c), Barnes (wk), Poulston, Draycott, Lea, Jones, Leigh, Rusbridge-Burns, Sawley, Davidson & Wilson
The 1st XI remain seventh in the table after last weeks win, but have closed the gap to Old Park's who lay just 14 points ahead in 6th. A strong win this weekend could therefore see us leapfrog them in to the top half of the table.
Old Parkonians have had a strong season so far, highlighted by another dominant win last time out against Westminster Park. Saad Saeed and Nick Hitchell have enjoyed good scores with the bat this year, amassing 171 and 138 runs respectively. The wickets have been shared by the Berkson's, with Daniel and Tim striding ahead with 13 and 11 wickets apiece.
The weather looks fine and clear once again, with temperatures due to head up in to the 20's, so let's all enjoy another excellent days cricket and make the most of it whilst we still can. The bar will be open from 3pm.
See you on the boundaries edge...
