The Imperial Hotel Tigers will have a near full-strength side as they look to rebound immediately from their first Twenty20 loss, says Tigers skipper Mitchell Swain.
After the McDonalds Charges edged them in a third-round clash last week, the Tigers tackle the Sign Print Stitch Stars in the second clash at Kitchener Park on Friday night.
Returning this week for the Tigers are Josh Smith, the competition’s leading run-scorer, batsman Damien Baldwin and quick Kurt Barton. All three missed the Chargers clash.
“We’re pretty well at full strength,” Swain said. “We were obviously disappointed we didn’t get it done last week – it’s was a very close game (the Chargers won by two runs) … so we’ll be looking to bounce back this week and put on a good show.”
In the first game at Kitchener Park on Friday, the Chargers take on the Tamba Industrial Bulls.
