Butcher and Watson Huge Inclusions For Riding Mill

When England omitted James Anderson and Stuart Broad from the first test of the summer at the GABBA it raised a plethora of questions.

Needless to say when evergreen Brian Watson was not named in the starting XI for the opening game of Riding Mill’s virtual tour of Australia there were many eyebrows raised. It does appear to be a masterstroke however, with Watson and Butcher both inclusions for their highly anticipated clash with Dubbo CYMS with the tourists coming off a first up win against Burrabadine.

The rotation policy employed will ensure that players have adequate rest and recovery between games and no doubt ensure the longevity of players on the month long tour. In this case it is Longstaff and Potts who will look to freshen up and perhaps take the opportunity to take in the sights at the Iconic Dubbo Western Plains Zoo.

When Riding Mill last toured, it was Aly Hall who was the key man against Dubbo CYMS claiming a hat trick in his figures of 4-5 after scoring 46 from 17 balls. It was not enough however, with Dubbo CYMS coming away with a nail biting win.

Dubbo CYMS new recruit Angus Norton has been handed the responsibility of captaining a side that has plenty of dice cricket experience with a couple of new faces looking to make an impression on the big stage.

It is understood it should be a good virtual surface for the clash that is certain to be followed closely by dice cricket lovers around the globe with coverage of the fixture on the official Cricket Library Twitter feed from 8am Sunday Morning in Australia and 9pm Saturday night UK time.
