Patron of the Cricket Countdown, Nina Stevens has been rewarded commitment to inspiring a love of cricket with the honour of being named captain of the Cricket Library Podcast Invitational XI for the historic dice cricket fixture with Riding Mill Cricket Club this weekend.
The Cricket Library Podcast Invitational XI boasts International & First Class cricket experience with the likes of Daryl Tuffey, Tim Ludeman, Nicola Browne selected in the line up alongside some very seasoned club cricketers and podcast listeners.
While both sides boast plenty of talent, the Riding Mill team much more seasoned in dice cricket than the hosts. The big question will be how quickly the tourists can acclimatise and if there are any virtual jet lag related concerns for the squad.
The game will get underway at 7am on Sunday morning in Australia with fans in the UK following along at 10pm Saturday night.
