The Bunbury and Districts Cricket Association is poised for a gripping round of matches, with plenty of incentives on offer for all sides.

Leading the pack at this early stage are plucky finals aspirants Leschenault, who lead reigning premiers Colts by four points.

And fittingly, both sides will get a true indication of their progression when they lock horns at Leschenault Recreation Reserve on Saturday.

Although they sit second on the table, the Green Caps players will enjoy looking at the bowling statistics, with Jacob Templeton (7-42 at an average of six runs per wicket) and Matthew Bowles (7-47 at an average of 6.7) in scintillating form.

Colts, who were patchy at times during their T20 matches, have quickly returned to winning ways in the longer form of the game.

Despite missing a host of names last week against the Redbacks, the league leaders were able to reign supreme convincingly.

For the Green Caps, the danger man will be Vikramjit Singh.

Singh, who represented the Netherlands at under 19 level, has slotted in seamlessly to Colts’ batting order and has the potential to treat rival bowling attacks with contempt.

A fair degree of intrigue will also be swirling around Hay Park on Saturday when the Redbacks entertain in-form Marist.

The Redbacks’ venom has regressed so far this season, but with club president Steve Florance and skipper Jono Whitney leading from the front, they could spring a surprise.

The hosts will have to up-end a strong Blues batting line up, who are fresh from a bye. One to watch for the Blues this weekend will be Brayden Clarke, who shone for the BDCA in its Country Cup victory on Sunday.
