Eight changes for Northumberland
A new-look Northumberland side return to Jesmond this weekend for the Minor Counties Championship game against Cumberland.
Northumberland captain Phil Nicholson is available again following work commitments, one of eight changes to the team that drew with Lincolnshire at Cleethorpes.
He said: “Selection has been affected by North East Premier League Twenty20 finals. Despite the changes it is a well-balanced and competitive side.”
Paul Muchall, Andrew Wood and Jon Wightman make their seasonal debuts in three-day cricket, while Marc Symington, Bradley Parker, and Wilkinson return after missing the last fixture. Andrew Smith also features after making his debut against Buckinghamshire last month.
Northumberland: Phil Nicholson (captain & wicketkeeper), Paul Muchall, Michael Turns, Marc Symington, Gary Scott, Bradley Parker, Andrew Smith, Matthew Wood, Jon Wightman, Rick Wilkinson, Jon Malkin.
