Tigers forced to make late changes to team

The Tasmanian Cricket Association would like to advise that prior to the commencement of the Pura Cup match at Bellerive against the Southern Redbacks, two late changes were forced upon the team.

Adam Griffith and Xavier Doherty were both withdrawn from the playing eleven.

Griffith has a calf strain and was ruled out following a fitness test on the morning of the match. Cascade Tasmanian Tigers Coach, Brian McFadyen said, "Adam has been experiencing calf soreness in the lead up to this match and unfortunately had to withdraw when he was still experiencing considerable discomfort in his calf."

Doherty was ruled out after lacerating his left knee joint on the medial side, requiring 12 sutures, in an accident during a regulation warm-up exercise on the morning of the match.

Scott Kremerskothen has been recalled after being omitted earlier in the week.
