Hopes of England resting on Riding Mill

In what has been a disappointing start to the Ashes tour for England, there is some hope on the horizon with the immanent virtual arrival of Riding Mill Cricket Club to take on some of Australia’s best dice cricketers.

In what promises to be an enthralling virtual experience for both the hosts and the visitors, Riding Mill hope to restore pride with their thirteen player squad consisting of some experienced campaigners along with five debutants hoping to make a name for themselves on this virtual tour.

The opening game of the tour is less than a week away with a lot of speculation surrounding the make up of the Burrabadine Cricket Library XI which is expected to be announced on the eve of the fixture.

Both teams will no doubt be mentally preparing for what promises to be a blockbuster clash to start the tour which will continue into January. The fast paced T10 format is always full of surprises and action ensuring fans around the world are on the edge of their seats.

To follow along with the action keep your eye out on the official Cricket Library Twitter feed where match score will be updated at the end of each over.

Kepler Wessels Special Guest On The Cricket Library Podcast The Cricket Library

Kepler Wessels has the distinction of representing both Australia and South Africa in International Cricket. In this edition of the Cricket Library Podcast, Kepler Wessels joins host Matt Ellis to share his reflections on the origins of his passion for cricket, breaking into First Class Cricket at age 16 whilst still at school, moving to England and the influence of Tony Greig in getting him to Australia to play World Series Cricket. We hear about Kepler's test debut, where he made a big hundred, and we clear up who was to blame for the run-out of Greg Chappell in that innings. He shares his mindset for taking on and conquering the almighty West Indies pace attack of the 1980s. We get some insights into the Sheffield Shield final in the 1985/6 season and his dismissal of Mark Waugh in that game. Kepler speaks of the surprise of returning to play international cricket for South Africa, the thrill of beating Australia in their first game of the 92 World Cup and the disappointment of bowing out in a rain-affected semi-final. He shares the plan they hatched to dismiss Allan Border in the famous Sydney Test Match of 1994 and the elation of scoring a century at Lord's at the back end of his career. Kepler updates us on what he is up to now, including his work at Kepler Wessels Training. Of course, we don't let him get away without asking who the three people he would most like to join him at the cricket nets.
