Can the Bulldogs stop the Riding Mill Juggernaut?

The Wagga Wagga RSL Bulldogs are priming themselves for what promises to be another dice cricket blockbuster this Wednesday night 6:30pm UK time when they take on a Riding Mill outfit who are riding high after back to back wins to start their virtual tour of Australia.

When they last toured, it was a high scoring affair with Riding Mill coming away with a 6 wicket victory after peeling off 170 in 8.4 overs on the virtual Wagga Wagga Cricket Ground surface that was very batter friendly.

With a wet start to the summer in Australia, it will be interesting to see if the runs will be flowing in a similar manner early this Thursday morning Australian time. The Bulldogs will be again skippered by their first grade captain and leg spin bowling all rounder Sam Perry. Sam’s younger brother Ethan is expected to be a key man at the top of the order after registering a rapid 47 off 14 the last time the two teams met with Joel Marks the one to snare the key wicket.

Riding Mill have continued to adopt a rotation policy with Brian Watson and Scott Dickson making way for the return of Iain Longstaff and Tony Potts. Steve Kent has been moved to the top of the order and will be looking to take the opportunity with both hands.

As always you can follow the action via the official Cricket Library twitter feed with a full match report and scorecards to follow the day after the game is completed.

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.
