Australian representatives join Matador Cup squad

The West End Redbacks require a bonus-point victory against Tasmania and other results to fall in their favour in order to qualify for the next stage of the competition.

Travis Head returns to lead the side after interim captain Callum Ferguson excelled in the role, guiding his team to their two victories with match-winning performances.

The quartet return from a tough ODI series against South Africa, but will no doubt capitalise on their experience on the slower Sydney wickets.

They replace List A debutants Nick Benton, Alex Gregory and Michael Cormack, as well as batsman Sam Raphael who will resume training in preparation for the start of the Sheffield Shield season.

“The debutants did a fantastic job and took the pressure at the next level in their stride,” said General Manager, High Performance Tim Nielsen.

“We are extremely pleased with their development and excited about the quality of competition we have for spots in our squad.

“We will assess our current (Matador Cup) side who have performed very well and will select the squad that will give us the best chance of defeating Tasmania tomorrow.”

Alex Ross has since returned to Adelaide after sustaining a fracture to his left hand in the tie against Western Australia in round one, and will not feature in the rest of the West End Redbacks’ Matador Cup campaign.
