JUNG Tigers will face an uphill battle against the Bullants on day two of their round 12 B Grade Horsham Cricket Association fixture, while the Colts and Horsham Saints start afresh.

The Bullants piled on 363 runs at nearly five runs per over on the first day of play as the Tigers struggled to slow their momentum.

A quick look over Jung’s scorecards from this season makes it difficult to pinpoint where its runs would come from if it was to chase down the large target.

If the Bullants attack spearheaded by David Combe, Jordan McDonald and John Heard can break through for early wickets the side may take the chance to push for an outright victory.

While the ten-points on offer might make little difference to where the side finishes on the ladder, it could be crucial to the Bullants gaining confidence and momentum shortly before finals.

Elsewhere, it will be a one-day encounter between the Colts and the Horsham Saints after the first day of their two-day encounter was abandoned due to water damage on the pitch.

Colts won by 85 runs when the two sides faced off earlier this season.

With the sides a chance to face off against each other in finals, the Saints will want to put in a markedly better performance.

Both sides rely on too few players to score a bulk of their runs and it will likely be a game won by the side whose bowling attack performs best and exposes brittle lower orders.
