Three debutantes named for ING clash

Cameron White, Rob Bartlett and Shane Harwood have all been named for their ING Cup debuts, in the Bushrangers one-day clash with Tasmania this Sunday. Making way for the three from the Bushrangers last ING Cup match are the injured Damien Fleming, Shane Warne who is being rested, with Shawn Craig omitted.

Victorian Chairman of Selectors, Shaun Graf said the absence of Warne and Fleming provided selectors with an opportunity to look at new players. "Obviously we would love to have Warney and Flem available, but on the positive side Cam, Rob and Shane have earned their spots and we expect all three to give a good account of themselves".

18 year-old leg-spinner White, has played three Pura Cup matches for the Bushrangers and will be used as a bowling option, providing extra batting depth. Melbourne fast-bowler Harwood hails from Ballarat and is a former Victorian and Australian Country XI member, whilst Fitzroy-Doncaster opening batsman Bartlett, leads all run scorers in Victorian Premier Cricket this season.
