The Redbacks’ rebuild finally bore fruit in 2022/23 as Jason Gillespie’s men overcame the odds to find themselves in the one-day cup final with Western Australia.

Despite WA dominating on the day, the fact that the Redbacks were able to come so close to a side held in such high regard within the Australian domestic cricket landscape is a sign that things are finally starting to click.

The rebuild itself however has been unconventional, with a significant portion of South Australia’s squad comprised of interstate recruits who were fringe players in their home states, with the likes of Nathan McSweeney, Nathan McAndrew, Wes Agar, Ben Manenti and Henry Hunt making the most of their opportunities with the Redbacks, with several now regular Australia A representatives.

As they look to capitalise on the momentum of last season and improve their performances in the Sheffield Shield, let’s take a deep dive into South Australia’s squad for the 2023/24 season.
