Description

The Adelaide Strikers are an Australian men's professional Twenty20 cricket team that competes in Australia's domestic Twenty20 cricket competition, the Big Bash League. The Strikers are based in the state of South Australia and represent Adelaide in the Big Bash League. Their home ground is Adelaide Oval. The Strikers wear a cornflower blue uniform with a West End Draught logo on it, due to a sponsorship agreement with brewers, West End. The Strikers were formed in 2011 to play in the Big Bash League, succeeding the Southern Redbacks, who played in the now-defunct KFC Twenty20 Big Bash competition.

The Adelaide Strikers were formed in 2011, as a result of the formation of the Big Bash League. When the competition was first formed, each team had an opportunity to sign up players and build their lists. The contracting window opened on 30 June 2011 at 9am and closed on 22 July 2011. Each team was allowed to sign up to 18 players, including up to two from overseas. The team's inaugural captain was South Australia captain, Michael Klinger, and the inaugural coach was Darren Berry, the then coach of the Southern Redbacks.

Stadium or Home

Adelaide Oval is a stadium in Adelaide, South Australia, located in the parklands between the city centre and North Adelaide.

The stadium is mostly used for cricket and Australian rules football, but also plays host to rugby league, rugby union, soccer, and concerts. Its record crowd for cricket was 52,633 during the 2014–15 Big Bash League season semi final between the Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers, and its overall record attendance was 62,543 at the 1965 SANFL Grand Final between the Port Adelaide and Sturt.

The Oval has been headquarters to the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) since 1871 and South Australian National Football League (SANFL) since 2014. The stadium is managed by the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority (AOSMA). Redevelopments between 2008 and 2014, costing $575 million, increased the stadium's seating capacity from 34,000 to 53,583 (including standing room). The Adelaide and Port Adelaide Football Clubs also returned to the stadium, leaving Football Park.

In 2010, Austadiums.com called the Adelaide Oval "one of the most picturesque Test cricket grounds in Australia, if not the world". In December 2009 South Australian Premier Mike Rann announced a $450 million government commitment to redevelop Adelaide Oval to enable AFL Football to be played there. In May 2011 Treasurer Kevin Foley announced an increase in government funding to $535 million. After the redevelopment, sports journalist Gerard Whateley described it as "the most perfect piece of modern architecture because it's a thoroughly contemporary stadium with all the character that it's had in the past".
