Teams Announced For Dice Cricket Blockbuster

Two very formidable outfits have been selected to go head to head in the Riding Mill Australian tour opener. The hopes of England are resting on the shoulders of the Riding Mill touring party who are hoping to restore pride after what has been a disappointing start to the Ashes series.

Riding Mill will be skippered by the experienced Liam James who was a key member of the squad who last toured in 2020. James will have high hopes for his side who will be desperate to hit the ground running on Wednesday Night UK time. It is understood that similar to the omission of Broad and Anderson at the Gabba, Riding Mill have decided to leave key men Brian Watson and Mark S Butcher out of the XI for the tour opener with both players expected to be selected for the weekend clash with Dubbo CYMS.

In keeping with a real English flavour for the match, overseas cricket librarian Matt Fiction will lead the Burrabadine XI who have made a few changes to their line up after going down to Riding Mill in the 2020 tour opener. From what we are hearing there are a couple of members of the Burrabadine XI under injury clouds with the team medical staff set to make a final decision on the morning of the match.

The match will get underway at 9pm UK time on Wednesday which is 8am Eastern Standard Time in Australia. Scores will be updated at the end of each over on the official Cricket Library twitter account.

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.
