The 15 player squad is subject to fitness and availability for selection due to state border restrictions.

The Top End Series will see the CA XI play a NT Strike team in three 50 over matches on the 1st, 4th, and 8th of August.

The CA XI features some of the most promising emerging players in the country, with a number of young players in the Under 19/20 age bracket.

The CA XI will be coached by Cricket Australia High Performance Coach, Troy Cooley.

Cricket Australia’s National Talent and Pathways Manager, Graham Manou, said:

“We’re delighted to name such an exciting squad for the inaugural Top End Series.”

“We have a nice mix of experience and youth in the squad. The Top End series gives our young players a fantastic opportunity to learn from some of their more established teammates and, just as importantly, test themselves against quality opposition.

“We are mindful that border restrictions may cause challenges for players who are yet to arrive in the NT. However, we had assumed this in our planning and have a number of quality players on standby should any of those players be unable to travel.

“Cricket 365 has already provided emerging and experienced players alike with a chance to gain some valuable match time during the winter months."
