SA Cricket Legends To Play Against Barossa Kids

The Barossa Council is the proud supporter of the Australian Cricketers’ Association Masters Tour, which will bring big name players like Mark Cosgrove, Dan Cullen and Wayne Phillips to the Barossa.

Wayne ‘Flipper’ Phillips played 27 test cricket matches from 1983 to 1986 and was Australia’s wicket keeper for a short period during the transition period from World Series Cricket to Australia’s golden age from the 1990 onwards.

The former Australian cricket greats, who will be joined by other big name players, will take on a Barossa and Light Cricket Association representative team in a twilight Twenty20 game on Friday 10 February, at Angas Recreation Park, Angaston.

The representative team, which will take on the Master’s team, will also include three of the Barossa and Light’s best juniors (15-18 year olds).

Mayor Bob Sloane acknowledged this is a great opportunity for the region with the program expected to help raise funds for local cricket clubs participating in the Tour, as well as identify local talent.
