Students came from as far as Mt Gambier and Whyalla to participate on the day, with 10 of the 30 schools entering both a boys and a girls team.

Black Forest Primary School won the boys competition.

Games were a simple, modified format of 45 minutes each, with limited batting time for each pair and every student having the opportunity to bat, bowl and field.

Teams were ranked on winning percentage, with a play-off taking place at the end of the day for the ultimate prize between the two highest-ranked teams in each division.

Cleve Area School won the girls competition.

SACA Market Development Coordinator Ellie Robinson was thrilled to see more than 370 kids take part in the event.

“It was fantastic to see so many kids here, having the opportunity to play on Adelaide Oval where the Ashes Test match will take place in just a couple of weeks’ time,” Robinson said.

“The School Cup is always a really fun day that allows kids to engage in fun and friendly competition, while further developing their cricket skills.”
