The Bunbury and Districts Cricket Association selectors will be spoilt for choice ahead of tomorrow’s round two Country Cup pilot tournament fixture against the WA Invitational XI at Forrest Park East.

Despite recording a convincing five-wicket win over the Busselton-Margaret River Cricket Association last week, tournament-listed players including Murray and Jayden Goodwin did not play.

Given the dominant nature of the victory, selectors appear to have some difficult decisions throughout the tournament, should the team’s overall form remain strong.

WA Invitational XI also enter the clash in good form after defeating the Albany Cricket Association by six wickets.

Eyes will be on whether North Kalgoorlie Cricket Club-based Bevan Bennell can back up his impressive innings of 88 last week, while Geraldton-based paceman Ringo McKenna will be keen to cash in on his club form in Perth.

Across at Forrest Park North, Albany Cricket Association host Busselton-Margaret River, with both sides eager to open their account.
