Raiders roll toward finals



RAIDERS is in the box seat to get back into final four calculations when the penultimate round of TDCA cricket wraps up on Saturday.

Gormandale v Glengarry

Glengarry’s total of 264 would normally be a winning score, but the Tigers are fresh off a record breaking chase of 354 and will approach the pursuit with confidence.

The Magpies’ bowling has been outstanding and boasts a varied attack in form.

Steve Wright and Ryan Delaney are key, as are Gormandale openers Al Jenkin and Grantley Switzer fresh from tons.

Glengarry needs to break a 20-year hoodoo to win.

Raiders v Rovers

Raiders have a season high 394 on the board and should crush Rovers.

Brad Knowles will lead the attack in a bid to set up an intriguing last round battle for fourth spot.

Simon Duff, Matt Whitechurch and Nilla Thillekarathna have nothing to lose and will be out for big scores in a fruitless chase.

Ex Students v Traralgon West

Ex Students need five more wickets to set up an easy outright in this clash.

With the 10 points on offer the Sharks are certain to go for second innings points.

Toongabbie v Imperials

Toongabbie and Imperials will play a one day game to finish 2014 on a high.

In a close game Toongabbie look likely winners at home.

Centrals v CATS

CATS enter day two at 1/65 needing 116 to win.

They need the top order bats to fire against a good Centrals attack.

Corey Pollard, Jarrod Allan and Marc Fenech will be a handful with the ball but CATS could sneak home with a good start.
