Proud Sponsors of Albury Cricket Club

In what has been a memorable virtual time down under for Riding Mill Cricket Club with their tour taking them to places such as Burrabadine, Dubbo, Wagga Wagga, Sydney, Pomberneit and now to the beautiful city of Albury on the majestic Murray River.

Albury Cricket Club will play host to Riding Mill this Saturday night 9pm UK time and 8am Sunday in Albury for what promises to be an interesting match up with Albury boasting some wonderful credentials as a cricket club yet making their debut in the dice cricket format.

Riding Mill have mad two changes to the team that lost by 7 wickets to Pomberneit during the week with skipper Liam James & top order batter Steve Kent making way for Aly Hall who will take on the captaincy duties and Brian Watson who is again expected to take the new dice.

Ross Dixon will captain Albury with coach Jerim Hayes excited about the prospects of the side adapting their skills to the dice format and has high hopes of being very competitive on the weekend despite the fact most of the XI will be backing up from playing on Saturday afternoon.

Of course you will be able to follow all of the action via our official twitter feed with full scorecards and match reports to follow after the game.

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.
