Boge wary of Norths in the wet
TWO-day premiers Brothers have taken a beating from the weather gods recently, with their scheduled games against division one teams Waves and Wests washed out.
They will again face a division two side in Norths 2 this weekend, and captain David Boge is approaching the clash with caution.
“We haven’t played Country Wests since mid-December, so hopefully that lack of exposure doesn’t come back to haunt us,” he said.
He too was wary of the recent rain affecting the playing surface.
“Batsmen are used to coming in on a flat pitch and swinging from ball one,” he said.
“I think a bit of caution needs to be had now, and I’ll be looking for our guys to be watchful and build an innings.”
The skipper predicted lower totals of around 160 would be defendable in these conditions, but no doubt he will be asking for more from his boys against the lower-tier Norths this weekend.
