Jesse Goodman and Joshua Waldhuter, who both made their debut for Australia this week in one-day games against England, join Luke Goodman in the squad for the Games starting on Sunday.

John Lonergan (national coach) and Jo Connolly (team manager) are also from SA.

Australia and England are playing three one-day games this week in Brisbane and then will compete in the cricket competition at the Games in a series of five Twenty20 matches at South Brisbane District Cricket Club and Allan Border Field from 13 to 19 October.

Cricket Australia’s Executive General Manager of Community Cricket, Belinda Clark, said: “Cricket’s inclusion in the 2019 Global Games is further recognition that cricket is a sport for all, including people with a disability.

“The Games are a true celebration of cultural diversity allowing cricketers to compete in a secure, fun and friendly environment whilst helping to change attitudes, challenge perceptions and strengthen communities locally and globally.

“Athletes with a disability are a source of inspiration to all Australians and I have no doubt these Games will provide a greater platform for people with a disability to get involved in cricket with the knowledge that there are representative pathways in place for cricketers, including the National Cricket Inclusion Championships as well as Cricket Australia’s national disability squads.

“I wish the team all the best for this important international event and I am sure their performances will inspire cricket fans across Australia.”
