Cumbria will be guaranteed a home tie in the quarter finals of the NCA Trophy if they win their final group game on Sunday.michael slack 3.png

They have already beaten Cheshire, Staffordshire and Northumberland and complete their fixtures at Netherfield against Shropshire.

But they will have to go into action without their captain Gary Pratt who is not available on Sunday. Carlisle’s Michael Slack will skipper the side.

Another Carlisle batsman, Ben Davidson who was 12th man at Northumberland will take Pratt’s place in the line-up and Marcus Stables, the former Cockermouth batsman joins the squad.

Otherwise Cumbria will be unchanged from the side which thrashed Northumberland by nine wickets last Sunday.

The line-up: Michael Slack (captain, Carlisle), Sam Dutton (Blackpool), Nathan Waterston (Furness), Ben Davidson (Carlisle), Matthew Sempill (Cockermouth), Paul Hindmarch (Cockermouth), Tom Benn (Carlisle), Nico Watt (Wigton), Sam Sharp (Cockermouth), James McGown (Keswick), Matthew Siddall (Blackpool). 12th man: Marcus Stables (Astley and Tyldesley).

The match at the Netherfield ground gets underway at 11am.
