Saturday will see the commencement of the two day matches and with a new points structure in place all teams will be eagerly chasing positive results to move into finals contention.

All eyes however will be on the one-day which will pit some of the best cricketers on the Coast against each other.

Lisarow Ourimbah have been the standout team this team having won all of their ten games this year and also only failing to pick up a bonus point on one occasion.

They have a very strong and well balanced team headlined by opener Ben Cohen who is capable of destroying any attack on the Central Coast. If he and fellow opener Chris Sheppeard get going it will spell trouble for Warnervale. Should they fail the Magpies still have the likes of representative players Blair Lindsay, Matt Jones, Ryan Fenning, Ben Sunshine and Blake Crutcher to follow whilst 15 year old Tyler Searle is getting better each time he takes to the crease. With the ball Lisarow Ourimbah have a well balanced attack led by NSW Country quick Scott Burkinshaw and Matt Sunshine, who has had a great start to the season. Jones, Ben Sunshine, Mitch McBeath will provide medium pace support whilst Lindsay and Searle will provide the spin options.

Warnervale themselves have plenty of stars and they don’t come any bigger than Simon Keen who is arguably the number one short form player in the competition, whether it be with bat or ball. The former Sixes and Thunder BBL star started the season off slowly however had been in supreme form of late and if he gets going Warnervale will be right in this match. Keen will have valuable support from former Australian Country representative Kaine Harmsworth, who despite playing limited matches in recent time roared back to form with the ball last week with a five wicket haul to propel the Wildcats into the final. David Mitchell is another player who has recently joined Warnervale and his inclusion has strengthened a batting lineup which includes Central Coast representative Tony Cornwell, Brett Russell, Chris Harper and Jake Crelley. Warnervale lineup also includes Mitch McNeilly who is capable of turning a match in a heartbeat with is hard hitting as has been shown a couple of time this year already as well as in last years T20 final which he claimed Man of the Match honours in the Wildcats victory. Harmsworth and Keen will be keys with ball for Warnervale with support coming from the reliable Daniel Hill, McNeilly, Crelley and spinner Joey Liddle whilst the experience of Scott Atkinson behind the stumps is invaluable. Warnervale also have their own youngster in  16 year old Hunter Jackson-Sullivan who is slowly making his way at this level.

Form this season points to a Lisarow Ourimbah win however they have been tested in their last two outings against Kincumber Avoca and Narara Wyoming. Warnervale on the other hand have mixed their form this year, having not won any of their T20 matches at the beginning of the year before winning four of their six one day matches. Keen in their barometer as when he fires Warnervale normally win when he doesn’t they normally get beat.

Should be a fascinating encounter.

The match commences at 12pm at Erina Oval.
