Bosisto wants to remain at Redbacks

Former Western Australian batsman Will Bosisto believes his future lies in South Australia rather than a move back home, after completing his first season with his adopted state in 2019/20.

The former Australian under 19's captain made the move at the end of the 2018/19 summer, having played 23 games in seven seasons for WA since his debut in 2013.

The 26 year old told Sports Drive he was confident of continuing with the Redbacks in 2020/21, despite the uncertain financial climate created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It's still a really uncertain time. This situation has disrupted the cricket contracting process a little bit, I'm still a little bit unclear as to where I stand on that front as yet," Bosisto said.

"I'm sure that's understandable with workplaces right around the world, it's a pretty tumultuous period."

The right hander played three matches this summer, including a win against his former state at the Adelaide Oval in February.

Bosisto ruled out a return to Western Australia in the short term, saying he was happy to be living in SA.

"I'm pretty content in Adelaide, Perth is always going to be home for me from a family perspective, it's the greatest place in the world to live. " he said.

"My cricketing endeavours are completely separate to that, I guess I'll have to weigh up where I feel my best opportunities lie to keep pursuing my passion.

Bosisto conceded that the vacant South Australian coaching position clouded things surrounding contracts, after former coach Jamie Siddons parted ways with the SACA earlier this month.

"It's certainly something I'd love to know sooner rather than later, as to who's going to be the new coach, it's obviously out of our control at the moment so as a playing group the best thing is to bunker down and stay safe,"

"When the time comes, we'll pick up the tools again and get back to work."
