ANTHONY HERAGHTY v MATT FEARNLEY

Orana opening batsman Heraghty is capable of tearing any attack apart and so often sets his side up. With the Wranglers missing their marquee bowlers the load will rest with Bathurst quick Adam Fearnley. If he can handle that task there is the hope of and upset but if not, Heraghty could shine.

BEN PATTERSON v JOSH TOOLE

Toole is arguably the most destructive batsmen in the Wranglers lineup and Patterson is no doubt the fastest bowler set to play on Sunday. The middle order batsman and first change bowler are likely to clash and the winner of that duel will do wonders for their respective side’s confidence.

MICHAEL CURTALE v RICHIE VENNER

Outlaw Curtale can destroy a bowler’s confidence and momentum in the space of a few balls, such is the manner in which he strikes the ball. He’s unlikely to bat in the top four, meaning he is every chance of facing veteran Venner’s finger spin.
