South Australia cut five players after winless season


The state finished bottom of the Sheffield Shield and Marsh Cup and will look to revamp their squad this winter

Jason Gillespie has begun the process of revamping South Australia’s squad after their winless season by cutting five players ahead of what is expected to be recruitment from other states during the winter.

Tom Cooper, Will Bosisto, Brad Davis, Conor McInerney and Luke Robins have all been dropped from the Redbacks’ list which has also lost Callum Ferguson and Chadd Sayers after the pair previously announced their retirement.

Cooper, who has played international cricket for Netherlands, is the most senior figure to be let go: he has made 6533 first-class runs at 34.93 (5389 in the Sheffield Shield) and 5505 in one-day cricket.
