Harwood plan to continue spin dominance under lights

NIGHT CRICKET: Harwood will be hoping young leg spinner Jacob McMahon can continue his superb night cricket form into tonight's top-of-the-table clash with Tucabia-Copmanhurst.

McMahon has spun his way through opposition line-ups to claim a competition high 10 wickets from four matches, including a five-wicket-haul against GDSC Easts.

"I think there is a little more pressure on the bowler in night comp games," McMahon said. "There is not as much room for error, and the batsman like to go after you a bit more.

"But I like bowling under the lights. It makes it a bit more challenging especially when you throw the ball up above the batsman's eyeline and bring the lights into play."

With Tucabia naming a strong side for the match-up, including Chris Adamson, Brad Chard and Brayden Pardoe - who scored 73 not out the last time his side played night cricket - McMahon said there was a chance Tucabia could get away from Harwood early on.

"You know with a side like that they will go after us," he said. "If we don't bowl well to begin with they will make us pay.

"I am confident heading into the match. I have a job to do and I will do it out on the field."

Harwood will carry momentum into the match after their stunning batting display against Tucabia on Sunday. Harwood scored 8-378 on the first day of their final round of Premier League match-up.
