Mudgee colts must all dig in

Mudgee colts skipper Troy Kenny wants his team to repeat its major semi-final performance in tomorrow’s Mitchell Cricket Council colts grand final against Orange.

Mudgee scored 1-307, including a demoralising 192 from opener Cameron Cox. 

“If we can get one for 300 again, I will be very happy. Fingers crossed,” Kenny said.

Orange and Mudgee will go head-to-head in Sunday’s final at Victoria Park.

Kenny said he wasn’t looking at one player to have a big game, instead he wants all players to dig in.

“Ryan and Cameron, after that big game in the semi, they will want to get stuck in as well,” he said. “All our batters really [need to produce a big game].”

While Mudgee will be at full strength, Orange is missing regular skipper Hamish Finlayson and Western Zone all-rounder James Ryan.

But Kenny is cautious about the opposition especially with the likes of Charlie Litchfield, Jono Warren, John Warrington and Matt Corben still in Orange’s line-up.

Not having Ryan is a boost for Mudgee but Kenny said the difference between winning and losing ultimately comes down to his team.

“We need to take our chances and we have been doing so throughout the season. We haven’t had a bad game in the field,” Kenny said.

The match at Victoria Park starts at 10am on Sunday.
