Kingborough will be looking to add to their first two-day win when they come head to head this weekend against North Hobart at the Twin Ovals with both sides will welcome back their Tigers players in what should be a tough contest.
Knights captain Trent Keep will be looking to continue his long format form from his mammoth unbeaten 160 last week against the Raiders. Opening quick Gurinder Sandhu will be wanting to add some more victims to his list following on from his 4 for 22 last week. North Hobart will be playing their first two-day fixture of the season after having the bye last round.
The Raiders, wanting to bounce back from their heavy defeat last round to Kingborough face the tough ask of ladder leaders Lindisfarne in Launceston.
They will have one of the leading batters in the competition Mac Wright (290 runs @ 58) and the CTPL leading wicket taker Nathan Ellis (18 wickets @ 10.11) to contend with.
Lindisfarne were comprehensive victors over South Hobart Sandy Bay last round and will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the ladder.
Glenorchy host Clarence at KGV Oval in Round 5 with both teams looking for their first two day victory of the season.
Glenorchy’s match with New Town last weekend was abandoned due to the weather so they will be chomping at the bit to take on Clarence.
Qalanders spinner Farzan Raja will be looking for a bag of wickets when he takes on the in-form Roos batters Michael Jones and Daniel Salpietro who both posted half centuries in their Round 4 draw with University.
Clarence welcome back Tigerrs quicks Sam Rainbird and Lawrence Neil-Smith to aid Alex Treanor who grabbed 5 wickets last round.
In the final match of the round University take on New Town at University Oval.
After a fighting draw with Clarence last round, the lions will be looking to go one better and secure their first 2-day victory of the season.
New Town have shown plenty of promise for such a young side in the earlier rounds, with youngster Mitch Owen being the dominant figure with the bat (337 runs @ 84.25) to have him second on the competitions run scorers.
Both sides will be looking for their first two-day victories to really kickstart their season’s and gather some momentum.
South Hobart Sandy Bay have the bye.
