One of country Victoria’s best batsmen, Luke Carter, will join Moama in its second Goulburn Murray Cricket Twenty20 match against Bunnaloo at home tomorrow night.
The Strathmerton cricketer will be joined by Leitchville-Gunbower’s Tyler Jones as another guest player as Moama looks to build on its 22-run win against Echuca South a fortnight ago.
In other matches, Fire Brigade will meet Tongala without its Melbourne-based players Daniel, Andrew and Michael Kent and Andrew Elborough, but Flames captain David Newman said that gave other players an opportunity.
‘‘We will also have three players from (Shepparton team) Old Students in Gino Saracino, Ryan Boswell and Nick Breslin,’’ he said.

Adam Ward was also in fantastic form and felt ready for the challenge, Cleary said.
Echuca will host Echuca South after easing past Bunnaloo by nine wickets in round one, which included a 70-run partnership between Brendan Prendergast and Taylor Beard.
The final game is between Rushworth and Stanhope, with Stanhope coming off a bye and the home side hoping to redeem itself after a 74-run loss to Cooma.
