Live-streamed Beastwear National Indoor Cricket League action will return to Victoria for the first time in 2018 as Croydon Indoor Sports play host this Sunday night.
In the first match of the evening both Victoria East women’s undefeated teams from Round 1 will clash when Monash Tigers take on Cranbourne.
The Tigers were impressive in their opening match of the season claiming a 23-run win over the Northcote Pirates.
They again will be led by their leading run-scorer from 2017, Jaide Anthony, as well as wicket-taker Erin Caroll and all-rounder Annecy Homberg.
Cranbourne have had a considerable turnover in players from the 2017 season and will be hoping for strong performances from Georgina Heenan, who took 5 wickets in Round 1, and Keely Pace, their leading run-scorer in 2017, if they are to go 2-0 this season.
In the men’s match to follow, Croydon Raiders will look to go 3-0 when they take on Bobo’s Diner Sharks.
The Sharks have lost Hurricanes BBL listed player Clive Rose from last year’s side but still maintain plenty of depth with Rodney Bird, Jurgen Anderson and Cameron Dinger all returning to the side who reached the 2017 Beastwear NICL Finals Series.
The Croydon Raiders are looking to go one better in 2018 after narrowly missing the Victoria East NICL Grand Final.
They again will look to Australian World Cup representatives Justin Perkins and Travis Baker to lead the way along with off-season recruit Geoff Latham who impressed in his Croydon debut in Round 2.
Sunday 6th May (6.00pm AEST) - Monash Tigers v Cranbourne
Sunday 6th May (8.00pm AEST) - Croydon Raiders v Bobo’s Diner Sharks
