After some speculation, we are pleased to confirm that former Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades wicket keeper batsman Tim Ludeman will be lining up for the Cricket Library Podcast Invitational XI to take on the touring Riding Mill Cricket Club in the opening game of their dice cricket virtual tour of Australia.
Ludeman was a very popular guest on the Cricket Library Podcast with his interview trending at number one on the Apple Podcasts cricket podcast charts in India.
Tim will join Nina Stevens becoming the second big name to be selected in an eleven that will comprise predominately of Cricket Library Podcast listeners.
It is expected that Ludeman will be suited to the T10 Format with his power hitting to be a feature at the top of the order. His glove work is exemplary and Riding Mill batsmen will need to be wary of his smart work behind the stumps.
With the tour now less than one week away, Riding Mill will conclude their preparations on Thursday with a friendly fixture against their neighbours Mallards before boarding the virtual plane down under.
