Murray Valley Cricket Association action returns to the two-day format with Deniliquin Rhinos hosting Cobram in the game of the round.

The Tigers will be looking to return to winning ways against the Rhinos after suffering their first loss of the season against cross-town rivals Barooga.

Second-placed Cobram head to Memorial Park to face a Rhinos side desperate to close the gap in fourth position.

Meanwhile, Katamatite hosts table-toppers Barooga, who enter tomorrow’s match off the back of a controversial win last week.

The Hawks had already passed Katunga’s score of 131 when umpire Alan Haddrell stepped in after the 40th over.

Haddrell declared Katunga was bowling its overs too slow and the game under lights was brought to an end, awarding the Hawks an additional 50 runs.

With the opportunity to bat all day this week, Barooga will be heading into this match confident of remaining on top of the premier division.

Third-placed Nathalia will be looking to make it back-to-back wins against Finley this season.

Finley remains winless and embarrassed against Nathalia last time, rolled for just 47 runs off 24 overs.

Finley captain Chris Shaw will be hoping his side can do better this time round, with only one batsman reaching double figures during the last clash.

The search for that ever elusive first win will not be made any easier as the Cats face two of the competition’s most in-form batsman.

Nathalia duo Ash Quinn and Luke Carter have had exceptional seasons to date, averaging 117 and 91, respectively.

The round also has a battle of the cellar dwellers as Cobram-Yarroweyah United hosts Katunga.

With both clubs guaranteed to miss out on finals, there is still a mathematical chance either side could finish with the wooden spoon.

Waaia has the bye.
