With Test cricket on hold for Australia, Head Coach Jason Gillespie has a full list of available players, headlined by skipper Travis Head and gloveman Alex Carey, with each set to play both fixtures in the west.

Also named in the two squads is potential debutant Corey Kelly. One year ago, the 20-year-old was in South Africa for the Under-19 World Cup, and this week the allrounder is in the frame for a maiden first-class appearance. Kelly has averaged 43.18 with the bat in 19 games of Premier Cricket for Sturt this season, including a highest score of 103. The talented youngster has also taken 32 wickets at an average of 22.28, with best figures of 6/78. 

Pace bowler David Grant is also in the fold, named in both squads after missing selection in the opening Shield rounds at the backend of 2020. Retaining their spots in the four-day squad are quicks Wes Agar, Daniel Worrall and Chadd Sayers, allrounders Liam Scott and Will Bosisto and batsmen Henry Hunt, Jake Lehmann and Harry Nielsen.

The 12-man Marsh One-Day Cup squad has a slightly different look to it, with the devastating bat of Jake Weatherald set to take to the WACA on 2 March. Experienced duo Callum Ferguson and Tom Cooper have also booked a seat on the plane for the short-form fixture, alongside young gun Cam Valente.

Following a Big Bash campaign with Melbourne Renegades that saw him develop a cult following, Peter Hatzoglou has also been named in the 50-over squad. The leg-spinner is yet to feature for a State at professional level, and will be hopeful of continuing his breakout summer by appearing for South Australia.

A South Australian Second XI will also be in action from Monday. Captained by Jake Weatherald, the side will face a combined ACT and NSW Country team at Karen Rolton Oval from 22-25 February. Full of exciting talent, the squad contains the likes of Lloyd Pope, Daniel Drew, Spencer Johnson and many more from within the ranks of South Australian cricket.

Joe Mennie is not available to return from England after making the trip in pre-season last year for personal reasons. It is unlikely he will feature this season.

The West End Redbacks take on Western Australia in a Marsh Sheffield Shield match from 25-28 February at the WACA before backing up in a Marsh Cup at the same venue on 2 March.
