Redbacks Name Two Potential Debutants
Emerging Redbacks Daniel Drew and Will Bosisto could make their first-class debuts for South Australia in their Marsh Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania at Blundstone Arena on Saturday.
Drew has notched scores of 118 and 50 in SA’s most recent Toyota Second XI clash with Queensland and has two half-centuries and nine wickets from six West End men’s Premier Cricket matches this season.
The 2016-17 Bradman Medallist and former Adelaide Strikers-listed batsman replaces Liam Scott in the squad.
Western Australian Bosisto has been included as a replacement for batsman Tom Cooper, who is ruled out after experiencing symptoms of delayed concussion from a head knock in the second innings against Western Australia at the WACA.
Bosisto, 26, is Premier Cricket’s leading run-scorer and wicket-taker with 481 runs at an average of 120.25, including three centuries, and 20 wickets from just six games this season with Adelaide University.
The right-hand batsman and off-spin bowler also has a century and a 50 representing South Australia in the Second XI competition since making the move from Perth, where he was formerly on contract with the Western Warriors.
Greg Blewett will continue as coach for the clash with fourth-ranked Tasmania.
The final match before the KFC Big Bash break begins at 10:30am local time (10am ACDT) on Saturday, 7 December.
Both teams will name their starting XI at the pre-match coin toss.
