State Player Contract List 2004-2005
Cricket Victoria Chief Executive Officer Ken Jacobs today announced seventeen State contracted players and three Rookie contracted players for 2004/2005 season.
The Bushrangers squad also includes Cricket Australia contracted players Matthew Elliott, Ian Harvey, Brad Hodge and Shane Warne.
Pre-season training for the squad will begin on Thursday, 1 July at the Victorian Cricket Centre at 2.00pm.
The full squad is:
Matthew Elliott (CA)
Ian Harvey (CA)
Brad Hodge (CA)
Shane Warne (CA)
A number of players who performed well in last season's Premier Cricket competition have been invited to train with the squad throughout the pre-season. The invited players list is:
Matthew Gale (Ringwood CC)
Brett Harrop (Melbourne University CC)
Ian Hewett (Richmond CC)
Glenn Lalor (St Kilda CC)
Grant Lindsay (Geelong CC)
Clinton McKay (Essendon CC)
Dirk Nannes (Hawthorn Monash University CC)
Sean Pietersz (Camberwell Magpies CC)
Damian Shanahan (Camberwell Magpies CC)
So with Crosthwaite only on a rookie contract and Pilon not even considered, you would imagine that Peter Roach is getting first dibs on the gloves.
Interesting Klinger is back, I dare say he wouldn't be if Hookesy was still around.
