Selectors yesterday named a 12-man squad for the Twenty20 tournament in the Wimmera as Grassmere seeks to cap off its return with division two success.

Panmure batsman Chris Bant is captain. Bant enters the weekend averaging 93.50 in four A grade matches, with two half-centuries.

He is one of four Bulldogs in the squad. Pacemen Nathan Shand, Daniel Meade and spinner Paddy Mahony have also committed to representative duty. Hawkesdale supplies Murray Habel, Ben Julius and Lachlan Glare, with Habel to act as vice-captain.

Killarney’s Anthony Martin and Brendan Chatfield, Purnim’s Luke Ryan and Sam McKinnon and Grassmere’s Isaac Malone round out the squad.

The Festival of Cricket is at Warracknabeal, Brim and Donald. Grassmere will play South West, Wimmera-Mallee 2 and top-grade side Warrnambool and District.

“We’re looking forward to it. There is a bit of youth in the side, with a bit of experience with Chris Bant and Murray Habel,” selector Norm Gibson said.

“They’ve got a bit of Country Week experience, both Bendigo and Melbourne.

“There are a couple of others who have gone to Bendigo previously, Luke Ryan and Ben Julius, and a couple of debutants in Anthony Martin and Brendan Chatfield.

“Isaac Malone has come on board as well. If anything we’re a bowler short but there are some all-rounders in the side.

“When you look at it, they only bowl four overs each. It’s more of an all-rounder’s game than an express pace bowler’s game.”

Gibson said Grassmere would “go up with a positive attitude and see what happens”.

He was well aware Warrnambool and District would be a strong opponent but had little insight into the South West and Wimmera-Mallee 2 sides.

“Sometimes when you’re playing stronger opponents it brings the best out of your players,” he said.

Gibson said Grassmere needed to fire with the bat if it had any chance of winning division two.

“Our strength is probably our batting with the side we’ve got, compared to our bowling,” he said.

“But we’ve got a bit of youth in the field. That can help, especially when it’s supposed to be 30 degrees up there.

“The boys last night at training were pretty keen.”
