Kissing Point Next Challenge For Riding Mill

Riding Mill are licking their wounds after being mauled by the Bulldogs in Wagga Wagga on Wednesday night and they are hoping to bounce back when they head to virtual Auluba Oval in Sydney for their clash with Kissing Point Cricket Club.

Kissing Point have a real family flavour with it appearing this game may be an opportunity for family dice cricket bragging rights as well as a chance to further halt the momentum of Riding Mill who got their tour of Australia off to a flyer before falling short in Wagga.

Riding Mill have continued their rotation policy with Brian Watson’s blood pressure returning to stable levels after being left with the nerve wrecking task of hitting the winning runs against Dubbo CYMS. Scott Dickson also returns to the top of the order with Jonny Bennett and Ali Raza the two players being rested.

The last time the two teams met, Kissing Point piled on the runs and were just too strong for the visitors. Riding Mill will have gathered plenty of intel from that performance and will no doubt have plans in place to ensure they are better prepared this time around.

Game time will return to 9pm UK time on Saturday which will be an 8am start for the Kissing Point lads in Sydney on Sunday morning. It also will provide a perfect precursor to Day 5 of the Sydney Test Match.

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.
