Anticipation levels are at an all time high as we approach the culmination of what has been a dice cricket virtual tour to remember for Riding Mill Cricket Club.
The dice cricket specialists have had their share of highs and lows along the way with the final game of the tour not only a chance to level the series at four a piece, it is also an opportunity to have bragging rights over some well known cricketers and personalities when they take on the Cricket Library Podcast Invitational XI.
Riding Mill have opted to make some alterations to their batting order which will provide the likes of last ball hero Tony Potts to face the new dice being delivered by current Melbourne Renegades opening bowler Josh Lalor, Sydney Sixers WBBL star Emma Hughes and former Big Bash and Sheffield Shield winner Alister McDermott.
West Australian luthier and music identity Andrew Ellis will bring some variety to the Podcast XI attack. Throw in the mix Sheffield Shield commentator Jack Clifton, media personality Nina Stevens and Cricket Library Weekly co host Robbie Mackinlay there will be no shortage of banter out in the middle.
At the top of the order the Cricket Library Podcast XI have some popular inclusions with former Big Bash star Tim Ludeman returning having made a half century on his dice cricket debut against Riding Mill last year. Another popular in is rising star Maddie Penna who had a massive impact on the WBBL this season for the Adelaide Strikers.
Matt Fiction has been handed the captaincy and will have a crucial role to play tactically as well as holding down the all important number 7 place in the batting order. Additionally Samantha Devlin is set to make her dice cricket debut and will be looking to make an impact with both bat and ball.
Our mail out of Riding Mill is that spirits are high and the group are buoyant about their chances against their highly credentialed opposition.
