Redbacks name 13 man squad for Tigers clash


March 11, 2016

The West End Redbacks have named two additions to their squad that will face the Tasmanian Tigers at Gliderol Stadium next week starting from Tuesday, 15 March. 


Nick Benton comes out of the team after his courageous heroics earlier in the week where he scored the winning runs against the Western Warriors with a dislocated shoulder in the Redbacks’ nail biting one-wicket win.

 

He is replaced by Cameron Valente, the young pace-bowler back in the side after featuring against New South Wales at Coffs Harbour two weeks ago.

 

Valente is joined by left-arm orthodox bowler Tom Andrews who also returns to the 13-man squad. 

 

Currently in fourth position on the Sheffield Shield table, the Redbacks will need a win against Tasmania and are forced to rely on other results to go their way if they are to qualify for this year’s Shield Final.

 

Play starts at 10.30am each day with the match available via live stream on www.cricket.com.au.
