A SQUAD has been an­nounced to rep­re­sent the North­ern Ter­ri­tory in the Cricket Aus­tralia Un­der-19 (male) National Cham­pi­onships next month.

Tas­ma­nia will play host to the most tal­ented un­der age crick­eters from eight States and Ter­ri­to­ries, with day-night matches be­ing in­tro­duced for the first time.

NT Cricket se­nior man­ager of path­ways, Mark Sorell, sees the team as a strong con­tender in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion.

“We have a well-bal­anced side with a real ver­sa­til­ity in the play­ers se­lected,” he said.

“We have in­cluded dy­namic NT play­ers from both Dar­win and Alice Springs and have a good mix of bowl­ing op­tions in­clud­ing spin and pace vari­a­tions.

“Our bat­ting side is a pos­i­tive mix and some of our play­ers have ex­pe­ri­ence from pre­vi­ous Cham­pi­onships.”
