North Albury captain Ash Borella will front the tribunal on Wednesday night.
Borella was reported during the East Albury game on February 9.
It’s alleged he made contact with bowler Will McIntosh.
It certainly didn’t affect the dashing left-hander’s batting as he smashed an unbeaten 104 from just 73 deliveries.
Borella was allowed to play last Saturday, smashing a quickfire 33 in the loss to Wodonga.
Albury’s Kade Brown is a straight shooter and didn’t hold back when quizzed on his 6-26 against New City.
“Actually, I bowled terribly,” he admitted.
“Steve McLennan and Ben Dower bowled 20 overs and went for 39, they must have beat the outside edge 20 times.
“Then I’ve come in and bowled half-trackers, they were just skying them.
“It’s a funny game cricket.”
Albury sits just three points behind sixth-placed Tallangatta and a win above East Albury in the battle for the last finals spot.
Lavington’s Ryan Brown is having his best season.
Brown has taken 35 wickets, passing the 34 he snared in 2013-14 and 2016-17.
The right-arm speedster joined fellow opener David Tassell with 31 scalps at 50-over level after taking 4-15 in the win over East Albury.
He’s also taken four wickets at T20 level.
Brown, who debuted as a 16-year-old a decade ago, also boasts the remarkable feat of two hat-tricks, against Wodonga Raiders and Tallangatta.
The Panthers face Raiders on Saturday.
Jack Craig’s maiden provincial ton was in his 100th first grade game for his beloved Wodonga.
The all-rounder debuted in 2010-11, becoming a permanent member two years later.
The premiership captain’s neat 100 finally ended a drought after posting 14 half-centuries, including three scores in the 90s.
It’s been a big year for milestones with coach Robbie Jackson passing 150 games, while BJ Garvey also passed the ton.
Jackson has 5929 runs at 51.
MATE V MATE
Belvoir’s Drew Cameron is behind CAW’s State of Origin.
It’s a fundraiser for the Stars of the Border Dance for Cancer on April 5.
NSW boasts Lavington’s Ryan and Nathan Brown, while Victoria has Wodonga’s Robbie Jackson and Jack Craig.
Tickets are $5 or $15 for families for the Battle of the Border at Lavington Sportsground on March 1, from 6.30pm.
“We’re hoping it becomes a regular event to raise money for the the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre,” Cameron said.
OPEN AND SHUT CASE
Belvoir’s Mick Russell is making a strong statement with his batting when he opens.
The enormously popular Russell hit 51 against St Patrick’s on Saturday after he posted his only other half-century against Albury in round 10.
In between, he had three single-figure scores at number six.
“He puts the club first all the time and just goes wherever we need him,” captain Zac Simmonds said.
Russell dropped himself while captain for the preliminary final three years ago.
