Joining the previously named squad will be Brett Dorey, Jodie Fields, Michelle Goszko and Jason Krejza.

Standing at 2.03m, Brett Dorey has always been a fast bowling force to be reckoned with. After a long stint away from the game, 38 wickets at 25.00 during the 2005/06 Pura Cup earned the Western Australian a call-up for the following ODI series, where he played four matches against South Africa and Bangladesh.

Former Southern Stars and Queensland Fire captain Jodie Fields represented Australia 108 times, amassing 1,742 runs, while causing constant damage with the gloves. She recently joined the Brisbane Heat in the inaugural WBBL.

It was Michelle Goszko that made women’s cricket history when she posted 204 on Test debut against England at Shenley Park – equalling the world record for the highest individual Test score. A Sydney grade competition player of the year, Goszko played for her state until 2011, when she called quits on a fantastic career.

Jason Krejza made waves when he debuted with figures of 8/215 on a spinning Nagpur wicket. Her went on to claim 12 wickets for the match and play eight Tests in his Baggy Green. Playing for both his home state of New South Wales and Tasmania, the off-spinner ended his career with over 200 wickets.

The Goulburn T20 match will commence at 4.00pm and Girffith match at 6:30pm, with both just a gold coin donation for entry.
