Before having the bye last weekend, the bowling attack of Marc Tucker and Duane Ashcroft ripped through Coro to bowl them out for just 33 while the week before against Diggers, Tom Spry starred with the ball taking four wickets to have the Diggers side bowled out for just 27.

Tucker has found form this season, currently sitting at the top of the pack with 24 wickets so far this season which includes seven in their last two games.

It is no surprise that with bowlers in a rich vein of form to see Exies sitting up the top of the table having already booked their place in the one-day final and will await the result of the Coro verses Leagues game to see who they will face on March 4.

Hanwood is heading into the game hoping they are able to cause an upset having picked up points in two of their last three games but they will be up against it.

Exies have only lost one game this season, and since the first round they have been undefeated and have picked up two convincing wins over the Hanwood side so far this season.

In their one-day meeting, they were able to pick up a bonus point win thanks to four wickets from Andrew Arnold and Tucker while Joel Mulder (24) and Alistair Burge (21*) lead the side to a seven-wicket victory.

The timed game was an outright win of Exies thanks to a half-century from Tom Spry who also picked up two wickets with the ball.
