The final squads for the Male Under 17 State Challenge, starting this Friday, have been announced.
Four teams will compete over the three days in Coffs Harbour, two each from Metropolitan and Country NSW/ACT, in what will be the final selection trials for the Under 17 National Championships in October.
The NSW Metro and ACT/NSW Country squads will be named soon after the State Challenge.
The Sydney Sixers and Thunder clubs will be represented by a team from each of the Metropolitan and Country regions. The carnival will be held at Coffs Harbour International Stadium No. 2 and 3 between August 16-18.
Each of the four teams will play three matches during the carnival.
Three of the players selected, batsman Ryley Smith (Metro Thunder), ambidextrous allrounder Niv Radhakrishnan (Metro Sixers), and off-spinner Connor Cook (Country Thunder) represented the Australian Under 16s against the Pakistan Under 16s in Dubai during January.
Cricket NSW thanks Coffs Harbour Council, Coffs Harbour District Cricket Association, and Chair of the North Coastal Zone, Ken Robinson, for their organisation of the carnival.
