The match is part of England’s month-long tour, which includes five one-day matches against the Australian over-60 team.

England won three matches in New South Wales last week and then defeated Australia by six wickets in the first over-60 one-day Test in Canberra on Sunday.

The English squad is made up largely of former County Cricket players. They are captained by John Foster, who played in the Minor Counties Championship for 15 years. The English batsmen have dominated so far on tour and they’ll enjoy the batsman-friendly Bell Oval.

Bridgewater’s Peter Scullie and Mandurang’s Max Scholes will play for Victoria Country on Tuesday.

Play starts at 10.30am and the game is a 45-overs per side match.
