TODAY South London’s most famous cricket team is sporting its new range of orange polo shirts as it hopes to complete an historic orangewash over bitter rivals the Battersea Badgers.

Having beaten the olde enemy twice this summer – both in a 40 over match in June and a Twenty20 in July – the two sides will clash again in the annual two-day Super Test this weekend.

Taking the field today are captain Mark Isham, Dan Sherman, Leon Watson, Sham de Silva, Matt Glover, James Couldrey Matt Small, Michael Rossi, Jack Caesar, Lomas Persad and Jon Malsingh.
