All Star Cast For Dice Cricket Finale

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.

Coverage will be from 9pm UK time on Saturday night and 8am Sunday morning with millions of virtual fans expected to tune in from around the globe. Make sure you are following our official twitter feed to make sure you don’t miss a minute of what promises to be a dice cricket battle for the ages.

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.
