Earlier they had the seating map to select your ticket preference and it just showed the whole ground as GA.
I saw that map first, then it changed to western stand and hill only. When I checked later in the day, it just came up as 'GA'.

A sign this is going to be bigger than first thought perhaps?

Just got an email from the club that tickets are selling fast, so make sure you get yours now before you miss out. They might be doing that to up ticket sales, but I don't think so.

Oh I’ve already got mine.

I guess for anyone else thinking about buying a ticket, do it now

Happy they’ve put up our star players.

Being a CFS volunteer myself, and after a busy summer being deployed into the hills and on Kangaroo Island, I’m really looking forward to this day just to relax and unwind.

After seeing first-hand the damage that has been done, it would be great to see as many there as possible to help raise the much needed funds that will help rebuild these communities.

Our squad

Tom Lynch (captain)
Matt Crouch
Brad Crouch
Darcy Fogarty
Paul Seedsman
Rory Sloane
Brodie Smith
Taylor Walker

Plus 4 SA cricketers, a female cricketer and a CFS volunteer
I think we will probably get 2 of the SA cricketers plus the female? Didnt they announce it was one of our players who used to play State Cricket?

The CFS volunteer and the other 2 cricketers to Port...

Would give 11 each.

4. Brodie Smith
5. Darcy Fogarty
6. Paul Seedsman
7. Tom Lynch (c)
8. Taylor Walker
9. ???

11. Rory Sloane

Looks like we have a decent enough top order, with the Crouch brothers featuring. Smith at 4 as a batsman, then Fogarty and Seedsman in the middle order as aggressive power hitters. Lynch our main all-rounder at 7, Seedsman also capable with the ball, Walker our main strike bowler. Sloane specialist fielder.

We need a #3 bat, hopefully a Strikers player like Carey. Then another pace bowler and a spin bowler.

Alex Carey and Megan Schutt looking very likely, so you may get your wish if we get someone like Rashid Khan or Liam O'Connor as the other cricketer.

SMA have told my work that they are expecting a sell out. But they gave her a total expected of 45000. I said to my colleague well thats not a sell out unless they are cutting off part of the stadium. You would think since its for charity you would open up to get as many people in as you can.

They mentioned there will be a draft for the extra players so not sure how its going to work.

With the Strikers playing the night before, I can't see the likes of Carey, Rashid etc being available for this match.

We'll probably end up with the leftovers like Stanlake, Lehmann etc.

Now that could be a fun side-fundraiser - a Stanlake pie throwing contest :D

Draft happening today apparently

Can't see the big guns being available considering the BBL finals schedule, but fingers crossed we get some good players
