CtC today confirmed that Oli Fairbank has been added to the CtC squad for the forthcoming tour to Rwanda.
Oli impressed on his debut tour both on and off the pitch, taking four wickets and winning best tourist.
CtC chairman George Dean commented "After much deliberation we've taken the decision to increase the squad to 17 to provide an additional bowling option given ongoing injury concerns in the bowling unit, with myself awaiting back surgery, Rory riddled by a Mexican parasite and Nat Gimson having hurt his shoulder dropping anchor (literally). I'm confident Oli will step up off the bench and can do a reasonable job taking the shine off the new ball for Gimson and could even provide some desperately needed support for Ed Cassels in the best rig stakes. Credit must go to Jack Dillon for his role in recruitment in the smoking room of the Royal Mumbai Yacht Club last December."
Oli commented "I'd toured with some of the CtCCCC stalwarts in the subcontinent but I think Brittorney was a really pivotal moment in seeing the standards laid down by the cannons I had heard so much about, but also experiencing first hand that not everyone was as wet as Rory. Legal proceedings permitting, I'm really looking forward to getting out there and unleashing my arsenal of full bungers and half-trackers on an entirely new continent. Buzzing."
The final squad is as follows:
Cambridge to Casablanca Cycling Cricket Club
