Adelaide University have acquired the batting prowess of SA Under 17 captain Kyle Brazell (formerly of Tea Tree Gully), however Brazell will be absent for round one while representing his State at the Under 17 National Championships in Queensland.
The side will take on last year’s West End One-Day Cup winner, Port Adelaide.
Woodville, undefeated in the minor rounds last year but later eliminated by Port Adelaide in the semi, will face Adelaide, who failed to win a one-day fixture last year.
Prospect will be bolstered by the addition of Sri Lankan fast-bowler Shaminda Eranga; the 32-year-old having represented his country 41 times on the international stage. The Pirates' season is set to begin with a clash against Kensington.
Reigning First Grade women’s premiers in both one-day and Twenty20 formats West Torrens will take on Kensington, whom they defeated in last year’s T20 final, while one-day runners-up Northern Districts will face Sturt.
Port Adelaide will play Southern District, with the Stingrays boasting new coach Hannah Perry, plus the inclusion of Statewide Super SA Scorpion Kelly Armstrong (formerly of Kensington).
This year, T20 fixtures will begin later, better aligning the schedule with the W/BBL period, to increase the profile of the competition during the time that domestic T20 cricket is particularly visible.
For the first time, T20 cricket will also be played across all grades, including juniors.
