State Representative Teams

South Australia proudly fields State representative teams across a number of categories and competitions. From indoor, to cricket for people with disabilities, SACA gives cricketers from all walks of life the opportunity to shine.

Southern Spiders (indoor)
The Southern Spiders are the South Australian representative sides in indoor cricket. These top-level indoor cricketers participate in the Indoor Cricket National Championships annually in a different location, where they battle it out against other States, to become national champions. The Southern Spiders consist of Masters teams, junior teams and open teams (including Lord's Taverners), with each Championship taking place over a different week in winter. The country's best players are selected to represent Australia in an international series to follow, based on their performance during the ICNC.
