BankSA Senior Country Cricket
BankSA Senior Country Cricket Carnival
The SACA and Bank SA are proud to host the 90th Bank SA Country Cricket Carnival to be held at various SACA Grade cricket locations around Adelaide, beginning on 2 February and concluding on 5 February, 2015.
This carnival presents all senior country cricketers the opportunity to test their skills against the finest talent from all parts of South Australia whilst engaging in social activities with other participants, ranging from new players through to the many previous acquaintances.
Each game is played on the pristine facilities maintained by the 13 SACA Grade cricket clubs within the Adelaide metropolitan area or the SACA itself, which gives all players the perfect opportunity to ‘demonstrate their flair’ on the same turf that many of our first-class players use on a Saturday.
Each match is scheduled to run for 50 overs (one day), with two pools of four teams playing a round-robin format with finals played on the fourth day. Each match is scheduled to start at 10:00am pending extreme weather and the condition of each ground.
Once again, the carnival has the support of our major sponsor BankSA who also provide wonderful support to our junior programs via the Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 Country Cups and the BankSA Under 17 Shield and Under 12 Statewide Cup.
The Premier team of the BankSA Senior Country Cup will again earn the right to play in the SAMCA Cup (formerly CUSA Cup) final and they will play the winner of the SAMCA Metropolitan Shield in this game. The Carnival Team of the Year will play against the Favell-Woon XI.
The BankSA Senior Country Carnival has over many years provided cricketers from all country areas with the opportunity to renew old acquaintances and develop new friendships through the great game.
