Haisman Shield | round 13 | Katandra v Karramomus preview

By Alex Mitchell

Katandra will be out to find some form when it takes on Karramomus in its final regular season Haisman Shield match.

While the Eagles will play finals, they have lost their past three Haisman matches — although they did win the one-day final in the midst of that run.

But the Bloods appear the perfect match-up in which the Eagles can regain some touch, having won just two games for the season in an underwhelming campaign.

But Katandra's main objective will be reminding itself how to perform in the two-day format, having won just two of its five two-dayers this season.

The Eagles fell to Northerners last weekend in a disappointing batting display, making just 89 after bowling the Jets out for 112 the week prior.

Jedd Wright (419 at 46.6) remains the side's most consistent player with the bat, while Ben Clurey (333 at 30.3) has also been giving the Eagles strong starts at the top of the order.

With the pill, Corey Hickford (19 wickets at 14.4) has been looking good, while Wright (23 at 15) has routinely made big impacts with his spin.

For Karramomus, it will be looking to close the campaign with a bang after posting just two wins.

It has lacked major contributors with the bat with Mitch McGrath (234 at 21.3) and Tim Kelly (153 at 21.9) coming up with some solid knocks.

With the ball, Jason Ibbotson has come up with a fantastic season, taking 20 wickets at 16.9 to be the Bloods’ most dangerous asset.
