Queensland Players Shine in National Inclusion Squads

Queensland Cricket's representative inclusion program continues to grow, with an impressive 16 players selected across the national squads for Blind and Low Vision Men, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Men, and Cricketers with an Intellectual Disability. This remarkable representation highlights the depth of talent, commitment and passion within the Queensland community. 

Five Queenslanders, Chris Gould, Jack McAllister, Matt McCarthy, Ollie Fanshawe, and Sean Kendrick have earned their spots in an extended squad of 22 players for the highly anticipated Blind Ashes Series in November. These players will showcase their skills and determination at a National Training Camp, where the final squad of 17 will be determined.

Queensland's Deaf and Hard of Hearing squad continues to demonstrate its prowess with six returning stars: Liam Prineas, Luke Trudgett, Michael Blight, Nicholas Mahoney, Nick Budden, and Sean Walsh. Joining these seasoned players is rising star, Kezzie Van Rij, making his debut in the 24-man squad.

The Cricketers with an Intellectual Disability squad features seasoned campaigners Haydn Brumm and Jamie Phillips, who will be joined by the standout performers from the National Cricket Inclusion Championships, Kyrna Crump and Tom Crump. Their selection in the 19-player training squad is a significant milestone, marking their first step towards national representation.

With national campaigns underway, Queensland Cricket is poised for an action-packed season focused on promoting community opportunities within the inclusion space. The upcoming season will also provide further development opportunities for identified players, ensuring a continuous pipeline of talent and support for athletes of all abilities.
