East Albury coach Dylan Weeding is banking on his bowlers having the ‘smarts’ to adapt to North Albury’s Bunton Park wicket.
“It is now (a low and slow wicket), it used to be hard and fast, there’s not much life in it now, it’s good for batting,” Weeding said.
“I’d back our bowlers to adapt, they’re pretty good bowlers, pretty smart and they’ll change their areas.
“It’s different bowling at Alexandra Park or a Scots School.”

The Crows have a cracking pace attack in Ryan de Vries, who leads the wicket-takers with 10 at 11.30, Cameron White’s been one of the best paceman for five years, while Michael Brown snared 25 scalps last season.
North Albury captain Ash Borella will look to hit top form after posting only 70 runs in his three innings in the 50-over format.
It hasn’t slowed the grand finalists who, along with Wodonga, are the only unbeaten teams.
The Crows claimed their first win last week, passing New City’s competitive total of 188.
