Cricket Tasmania releases the following squad of 12 for the Tigers' must-win JLT Sheffield Shield clash with Western Australia beginning tomorrow, Tuesday 12 March at Blundstone Arena.
Australian Test captain, Tim Paine, returns as does right-arm quick, Alex Pyecroft.
Rookie allrounder, Jarrod Freeman, and left-arm swing bowler, Sam Rainbird, make way.
The Tigers' hopes of advancing to a second-successive Shield Final win rest on beating the Warriors and New South Wales not winning its home game with ladder leaders Victoria. This would then setup a 'win and you're in' type scenario with the Blues at Blundstone Arena in the final round next week.
The squad is as follows:
Matthew Wade (C)
Head Coach: Adam Griffith
Senior Assistant Coach: Jeff Vaughan
Assistant Coach: Ben Rohrer
The match begins from 10:30am daily at Blundstone Arena with free entry. A free livestream of the match will be on www.cricket.com.au.
