16 February 2017  


WA ID Training Squad Players (L-R): Nick Rogerson, Boyd Duffield, Anthony Kalimeris, Jonathon Flower

A quartet of West Australians are in line to represent their country on an upcoming Tour of England, after being selected for the national training squad for cricketers with an intellectual disability.

Cricket Australia announced a squad of 22 players based on performances at the recent National Cricket Inclusion Championships held in Geelong, with WA's Jonathan Flowers (Dardanup CC), Boyd Duffield (Mt Lawley-Inglewood CC), Anthony Kalameris (Coolbinia-West Perth CC) and captain of the state's NCIC team Nick Rogerson (Murdoch Uni Melville CC) among the group.

The players will enter camp at the BUPA National Cricket Centre in Brisbane from 6-9 April, with the group to be whittled down to a touring party of 14.

The final squad will travel to the UK in July to take part in a tri-series against England and South Africa, with four One Day International and Twenty20 International matches, plus a final, to be played.

The tour will be fully funded by Cricket Australia as part of Commonwealth Bank’s sponsorship to support Australian Teams for cricketers with a disability.
