Cup Match challengers St George’s include two colts among six changes

Challengers St George’s remained consistent to form by ringing the changes in the hope of wresting the cup from Somerset in the Annual Classic next Thursday and Friday.

Among the six changes from the 2019 team that played to a draw at Wellington Oval are first-time chances for left-arm spinner Isaiah Greaves and Warwick batsman Jamar Stovel.
