George Harding and Jesse Marciano will face up first with the Swallows on 2/44, 89 runs behind Settlers’ opening day total of 133 and looking to help their side back up a strong bowling performance.
Richie Wyld and Riley Burns have the wickets for Setts and will need to be on their game to help defend the modest total their batsman have left them.
At the Old Aerodrome Ovals Mildura West’s batsmen put 210 on the board last week, the best batting performance of the round.
Several West batsmen got starts with English import Taylor Bradley’s watchful 44 off 95 balls the best batting performance, well supported by captain Brandon Dixon, who pushed things along in the lower order, scoring 41 off of 42 deliveries.
Nichols Point will try to chase down that total today in an attempt to secure two consecutive First Division wins for the first time in club history.
Dale Chappell and Brady Moore put on 33 for the opening wicket in the Pointers’ win over East last round and another good start will be the key today.
Coach Kaushik Aphale has had a week to adjust to Australian conditions after not troubling the scorers last week, just days after touching down in the country.
