Brotherly love will be set aside for the first time at tomorrow night’s ‘‘Farewell KDCA’’ cricket match at Kyabram Recreation Reserve.
The district’s best known and best performed cricketing brothers David and Paul Newman will be on opposing sides.
David is in the Country Week side selected from Melbourne Country Week winning teams of 2001 and 2002, while Paul has opted to play in the invitational team.
Paul was in the 2001 side that took the division two crown in Melbourne and David played in the division two and history-making provincial winning sides.
The brothers are regular teammates for former KDCA powerhouse and now Goulburn Murray Cricket outfit Fire Brigade.
Elder brother David, a former Premier Cricket premiership player with Dandenong and Victorian Second XI representative, said it would be a strange occurrence.
‘‘We have never played against each other and so it’s going to be very interesting,’’ David said.
‘‘He doesn’t seem to have too many weaknesses, but I hope I can find one.’’
David is likely to take the new ball for the Country Week squad, while Paul is likely to open the batting for the invitational team.
Paul said he was looking forward to the challenge of batting against his brother.
‘‘It would be nice to land him out of the ground a few times wouldn’t it?’’ Paul said.
The ‘‘Farewell KDCA’’ game is an event to honour the 107-year history of the now-amalgamated competition.
