After much deliberation at the selection table, the Burrabadine XI has been finalised for the dice cricket virtual tour opener against Riding Mill Cricket Club. The side has not had the fanfare of the Cricket Library Podcast Invitational XI but boasts some high quality players.
Resident cricket librarian Matt Fiction who is best known for the highly popular Roadside Reviews segment will captain the side. He has a wealth of dice cricket experience that he will bring to the virtual table and is expected to lead the team with distinction.
One of the marquee signings is Andrew Ellis who we assured has been picked in the team on merit and not simply due to the fact that his brother hosts the Cricket Library Podcast. In fact there is some speculation he has a point to prove having being omitted from the Cricket Library Podcast Invitational XI.
Andrew is best known for his work making Ellis Guitars and feels more comfortable playing dice cricket as the chances of him injuring a precious strumming fingers are greatly reduced.
The tour is gaining momentum rapidly and all and sundry are eagerly anticipating the opening fixture at 6am Sunday morning in Australia and 9pm (GMT) in the UK.
