With three games, against St Peters (2 games) and a Darren Lehmann Academy XI, the tour promised to provide some tough cricket for the team, in preparation for the one-day part of the CAS season. It also allowed us to view the sights of Adelaide and meet many hospitable members of the St Peters community. We visited Glenelg Beach, Port Elliott, Victor Harbour and watched SA vs Qld in the KFC Big Bash at the most picturesque Adelaide Oval.
