Kyabram is rueing a winnable game being called off last Saturday due to the heat, but skipper Tom Roberts remains confident his team is not far away from its first win in the Cricket Shepparton competition.
Kyabram was to host Shepparton and Youth Club United in a day-night game last Saturday on the resumption of the season after the Christmas break, but the game was called off on the Friday night due to the heat.
Under Cricket Shepparton rules if the temperature for the next day is predicted be 42 or over at 5
‘‘It was a bit disappointing because they (Shepparton and Youth Club United) are a bit like us and are struggling a bit,’’ said Roberts.
‘‘Kyle Mueller was also going to play for us, but it’s likely he’ll be back at Carlton this week.’’
Another of the club’s outstanding junior talents, Matt Ryan, recovering from knee surgery, has put his comeback on hold for the time being. He hasn’t played this season.
Kyabram meets Kialla Knights at Kyabram in a two-day game starting this Saturday and Roberts is confident if his team’s bowlers can step up his side has a genuine chance of winning its first game.
‘‘Our batting has improved a lot, but our bowlers have to do a bit more before we can get that first win,’’ Roberts said.
