Matt Klemke had no problems finding a side for Friday's Batting for Change National Backyard Cricket Day at Yerong Creek.
It was more who to leave out.
The Henty farmer has six children - Jordan, Micah, Azariah, Samson, Hayley and Caitlin - and there was always going to be a hard luck story with only four cricketers required per side.
While the skipper of another side cheekily suggested Klemke should forgo his place in the side given his questionable batting ability, the captain insisted his team needed leadership.
"I've been working on a wrong'un which nobody would have seen up at Henty and Yerong Creek," Klemke laughed.
"I think a few of the opposition sides are in for a bit of a shock.
"I've also seen the pitch and know exactly where the short boundaries are.
"I've worded up the kids and they are ready to go."
Batting for Change is calling on Riverina families and cricket fans to play a game of backyard cricket to raise funds to support education projects in Australia and overseas cricket-playing nations.
While the Klemkes will battle it out in a showcase game against four other sides on Friday, National Backyard Cricket Day will be held on Sunday, January 31, with international stars Justin Langer, Alex Blackwell, Alyssa Healy and Michael Holding among the official ambassadors for the inaugural event.
"I'm a huge supporter of Batting for Change," Langer said.
"We've all got amazing memories of playing backyard cricket, so this is a great opportunity to get all your family and friends together and raise some important funds for some unbelievable initiatives."
