An Under 17 Northern Territory team was set travel to Western Australia in early January to play four One Day games against an under 17 West Australia team. Due to border restrictions between Western Australia and the Northern Territory, this tour has been cancelled.
Due to the cancellation and postponement of Underage National Championships over the past 18 months, this tour provides an opportunity for emerging players from the Northern Territory to test their skills against quality interstate opposition.
The four fixtures will be held from January 8 - 13 with games played at both Murdoch University and the hallowed ground of the WACA.
Adrian Gallagher will coach the side with Southern Districts Premier Grade Captain Matt Hammond to take on a coaching role with NT Cricket for the first time and travel as assistant coach.
The team will be well supported with Coen McKinnon named as Team Manager and Jess Menzies as the physio.
An initial squad of 15 has been selected, with the traveling 13 to be named prior to Christmas.
