DORCHESTER captain James Dunham is aware of the “finer details” during his side’s Dorset Funeral Plan Premier League title run-in with Poole.

Dunham’s men visit Shroton tomorrow (1pm) off the back of a 75-run loss to Poole last week. The rivals are now separated by just one point with two games remaining.

Such a tense finish to the season has been a fitting one, with Dorchester and Poole the class of the division throughout the campaign.

Dunham knows every point will be crucial in the race for the championship.

He told Echosport: “It’s probably a better points system than football where we could both win two games of cricket and we could overtake them.

“It’s exciting for both teams in the league and it makes you aware and more concentrated on the finer details, which started last week with the way the game finished. It will be interesting and should be good fun.”

With Shroton playing both title contenders in their final two games, the north Dorset side will play a huge role in the outcome of the division.

Dunham said: “It’ll be a very competitive game, Shroton want to gain as many points as they can and they’re a good side.

“We’re going to have to work for our wickets and runs, it’s not just going to happen. We can learn a lot from last week at Poole and we’re looking to bounce back.”

Jim Ryall, Jamie Barrett and Simon Mitchem miss out with Josh Foot, David Proctor and Nick Roe coming in.

Dorchester: Owens, W Caldwell, Anderson, Belt, J Caldwell, Proctor, Roe, J Foot, Richardson, Dunham, Walklett
