We’ve got amazing fans, an incredible home ground at Adelaide Oval and I know the guys are really hungry to have success. There’s good continuity in the team with a few players who have stuck with us for several years plus a few big recruits like Colin Ingram, Rashid Khan, and Peter Siddle. We can’t wait to get started,” Head, who already cemented his place in Australia’s limited overs side was heard saying.
