Other than Stubbs and Nero, who have been part of the national squad for a few years, the list includes NSW players Matt Cameron, Stephen Palmer, Shaun Fitzpatrick and Lincoln Muddle. The players were part of the NSW team that won a fifth consecutive title at the National Inclusion Cricket Championship in January this year, with Stubbs and Cameron’s 250 run not-out partnership bringing home the trophy.    

This is Muddle’s first stint in the Australian squad, the promising new player started his cricketing journey about a year ago and has made great strides already.  

CA also announced the national deaf & hard of hearing and intellectual disability squads.  Five NSW players, including mainstays Andrew Park and Rodney Baker form part of the deaf & hard of hearing national squad. The other players are Harry Bell, Lewis Beard and Austin Philip, all of whom played in the runners-up NSW team at the NICC this year, going down to Victoria despite a stellar five-wicket haul by Baker in the final.  

Dan McEwen is the lone NSW player nominated for the national intellectual disability squad. The players of these squads will attend the national training camp in Queensland in November 2024.
