This time of the season is always an exciting one for cricketers because of Twenty20 cricket. The prospect of playing in front of large, noisy crowds is something they look forward to. Our preparations for this year’s tournament began in Jersey earlier this week, when we were able to devote three days to that form of the game. It’s the first time in a while that the fixture list has allowed us to do this and hopefully it will allow us to get off to a fast start.
This year we have two overseas players available to us and we expect both Adam Voges and Kyle Mills to make us a very competitive side. Unfortunately, we look set to be without Eoin Morgan for a tonight’s game as he has sustained an injury to his right hand whilst playing for England. James Harris is also recovering from a side injury and is expected to start bowling again next week. The absence of Eoin and James gives Josh Davey and Ravi Patel a chance to show what they’re capable of.
