Wagga Sloggers have made four changes as they look to add some firepower to their batting line up.
After a loss to ACT Aces in their first Regional Bash clash, the Sloggers need to win both legs of their doubleheader at Lavington Sportsground on Sunday.
While captain Josh Thompson was pleased with their bowling efforts on Sunday, he believes their start needs to be addressed after slipping to 5-33 in the 29-run loss.
The Sloggers have brought in Wagga City opener Ben Turner, Kooringal Colts all-rounder Hamish Starr, South Wagga young gun Jake Scott and Wagga RSL all-rounder Charlie Cull while the unavailable Blake Walker comes out of the side as does Rikki Bovey, Nathan Corby and Tim Kross.
Thompson hopes the changes can spark the runs.
"We needed more firepower at the top of the order with our batting," Thompson said.
"We stuffed up last week with our top four batsmen not getting a start but that is cricket and hopefully there is a bit more stability with Jake Scott, Ritchie (Turner) and Hamish Starr coming into the line up.
"Without losing many up top we've just added three quality batsmen to the middle of our side.
"I think our bowling was really good against Canberra - it was some classy batting that pulled the game away from us - but I think it was definitely our batting that needed a bit of a tune up."
Thompson is also expected to tinker with the top of the order.
Imports Ash Borella and Ethan Bartlett opened last week but Turner and Thompson kick things off for Wagga City each week.
"Ash Borella will stay as an opener but we haven't worked out if myself or Ritchie will open yet," he said.
"One of us will definitely open and the other one will bat four. I haven't really decided what we will do yet but I want to see what we are up against."
