Sheffield Shield returns to 91.3 Sport FM
Sheffield Shield cricket is back on the airwaves of 91.3 Sport FM this Thursday, with Western Australia hosting South Australia at the WACA Ground.
It's the first Shield match at the venue since early March 2020, with the 2020-21 season beginning in a hub in Adelaide, Western Australia winning their first match before drawing their next three.
Adam Voges' side will play three Shield games and three Marsh One Day Cup matches in the remainder of the domestic summer, which will extend in to mid-April.
All Perth matches will be broadcast live ball by ball on 91.3 Sport FM, the call team led by Jacob Landsmeer, Wayne Clark, Kim Hagdorn and Chris Mitsopoulos, commentary simulcast on the Cricket Australia website and Kayo Sports.
Chairman and WACA Life Member Colin Minson was delighted to have Sheffield Shield cricket back on 91.3 Sport FM.
"Cricket has been a big part of my life and a huge part of this station's identity," Minson said.
"Whenever WA has been playing cricket, people know they can turn on the radio and know they will hear Sheffield Shield or one day cricket. Even in a season hampered by COVID-19 I'm pleased we can still provide our audience with the same service."
Interstate matches will be covered via broadcasts from the venues in the Eastern states, with WA scheduled to play at the Gabba against Queensland (Sheffield Shield and Marsh One Day Cup) and New South Wales at North Sydney Oval in a 50 over contest in their only interstate fixtures.
WA will face South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria at the WACA in both Sheffield Shield and Marsh One Day Cup fixtures, the final for the four day format on the 15th-19th April with the One day decider on April 11th in the latest finish to a domestic summer in Australian first class history.
The first ball of the WA-SA match will be bowled at 10:30 AM, coverage commencing from 10:20 AM.
