Two teams for both the NSW Metropolitan and ACT/NSW Country regions have been selected with a squad from each area representing the Sydney Thunder and Sixers Big Bash League franchises at the tournament, which will act as a final selection trial for the under 19 national championships held in Adelaide during December.
Phillips will feature in the Country Sixers team, which will be coached by Alex Kemp.
Joining the Nowra High School student in the squad are fellow Greater Illawarra juniors Dominic O'Shannessy and Flynn Parker, as well as ACT/Southern Districts’ Ollie Anable and Jordie Misic.
Rounding out the 13-person squad are Central North duo William Fort and Jackson Gwynne, Central Coast pair Nathan Doyle © and Jade Hardy, North Coast’s Nicholas Carter, Riverina’s Joshua Staines, Western’s Hamish Starr and Newcastle’s Glenn Winsor.
Head coach of the Cricket NSW high performance transition squad, Anthony Clark, said the state challenge was a great opportunity for the up and coming under 19 players to test themselves against the best.
“I am looking forward to watching you all play after the hard work that has been put in through the off season and seeing the improvements that have been made,” Clark said.
