Easts have been flying in their recent one day matches and hope their success can carry over to the longer format of the game when they play Guyra this weekend.
Guyra didn’t win a game in the opening nine rounds of one day matches but Easts captain Sam Uphill still believes they have the ability to upset a few teams.
“They got better. It is only their first time in first grade for a few years so as I have always said, they are a side that is going to come out and surprise someone one day. If they get it right they will hurt a side so it is very good to see,” he said.
For a host of Guyra players, it is the first time they have taken on the longer format and Guyra senior cricket convener Adrian Cameron said they are eager for the challenge.
“I know it is going to be a long few days for them but a lot of those kids now have been playing their Saturday cricket and on Sundays their rep cricket,” he said.
“For nearly all our players apart from Brandon Landsborough and Ben Jackson two days is new to all of them.
They are pretty keen for the challenge and I just hope they can settle down with the bat and concentrate a little bit.
