Bushrangers name ING & Pura Cup teams

  shares

Victoria's selectors have named teams for the weekend's ING and Pura Cup matches against the Tasmanian Tigers at the MCG. In welcome news for the Bushrangers, Damien Fleming returns to the Pura Cup line-up after spending two matches with the Victorian second eleven, gaining match fitness after a hamstring injury.

Ian Harvey also returns to the side after finishing international duties, Cameron White returns after captaining the triumphant Australian U/19 team at the Youth World Cup, whilst 25 year old Dandenong paceman Will Carr has been included in a 13 man squad for Saturday's ING Cup match. If selected, the match will be Carr's debut for the Bushrangers after excellent Premier Cricket and ACB Cup form.

Ian Hewett has been left out of both sides with a lower back facet joint inflammation, the injury expected to sideline him for two weeks. Mathew Inness, who fractured his right big toe last week, will be tested at training on Thursday night.
