Dubbo College will be gunning for a place in the prestigious NSW Combined High Schools Allan Davidson Shield when it plays host to Sydney Boys High on Thursday.

After winning through from the Western region, Dubbo College downed Riverina champions Wagga Wagga High last time out.

That set up a bumper semi with what is expected to be an extremely competitive Sydney Boys High outfit.

The Sydney East champions will look to stylish batsmen Arvin Niranjan, who scored 91 in his side’s last match, while opening bowler Hunar Verma claimed five wickets in that game as well.

The side plays in the elite GPS Sydney competition where they have been more than competitive against the best private schools in the state.

For Dubbo, Koda Sissian is coming off a half century last time out while the likes of Brock Larance, Thomas Nelson, Ben Wheeler and Will Grant have all enjoyed plenty of success in senior cricket this season.

Mitch Rosenbaum and Mitch Lincoln will also be key with the ball.

The 40-overs-a-side match starts at 9.30am at Lady Cutler 4 on Thursday with the winner going through to the state final at Bathurst on March 27.

The other semi features Warners Bay and Farrer High.
