Strikers strike Strathalbyn

08 December 2017

The Adelaide Strikers’ BBL squad will play a practice match at Strathalbyn next Friday, 15 December.

Overseas recruits Colin Ingram and Rashid Khan will not arrive in time to appear but the rest of the Strikers including new captain Travis Head will play in the 20-over game against a team of West End Redbacks players.

Play will start at 2pm and be followed by an autograph session at the oval, from about 5pm, and then a Milo T20 Blast clinic.

Strikers coach Jason Gillespie said he was excited about seeing the new-look squad in action.

“We have several new players and quite a few coming from interstate so it’s important for us to get together and have a couple of decent hit-outs,” he said.

“Strathalbyn is a really nice part of the world and the cricket facilities are really good, too, so it will be a great day.”  

The match is one week before the Strikers play their first game of the KFC BBL season at Adelaide Oval, against Sydney Thunder, on Friday 22 December.
