Fakenham and Great Witchingham are still awaiting the arrival of overseas players as the EAPL season enters its fourth round of games this weekend.

Fakenham are still negotiating a replacement for Sri Lankan Indika de Saram, who has been handed a contract with his national side for the forthcoming World Twenty20 tournament. Majid Amin, from Pakistan, has been signed to fill the gap temporarily and he made a good impression on his debut last week, hitting an unbeaten half-century in the draw against Saffron Walden.

He is set to play again tomorrow (Saturday) against Norwich at Ingham before taking up his contract with a Welsh club.

Witchingham's Dharshana Gamage has been held up by visa complications and is expected to arrive next week.

James Spelman's side have coped well without him, drawing their first two games and picking up their first win last weekend, at Horsford.

They will aim to build on that success tomorrow when they travel to Cambridge Granta, who have yet to record a victory this season.
