A host of KFC BBL stars, some of the country's most promising young talent and even a former Australia ODI batsman will this week compete in a two-day showcase of the best club cricket teams in the country.
The Fox Cricket National Premier T20 Championships will be held in Adelaide for a second year with inaugural champions Carlton back to defend their crown as one of 10 teams taking part from around the country.
The winners from each state and territory's Premier T20 tournament, as well as the runners-up from Victoria and NSW, will face-off at Adelaide University and Karen Rolton Ovals on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
Last year's tournament went down to the wire, with former Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes allrounder Evan Gulbis sending down a clutch final over to see Carlton take home the silverware.
The Blues this year boast four players who have played in the Big Bash; captain Gulbis, along with Australia Under-19 captain Mackenzie Harvey, wicketkeeper Brayden Stepien and paceman Cameron Stevenson, all three of whom have all played for the Melbourne Renegades.
The state's other qualifier, Monash Tigers, feature Victoria young gun Jake Fraser-McGurk and contracted rookie Mitchell Perry, as well as Netherlands wicketkeeper Scott Edwards.
Teenage leg-spinner Wil Parker, who made his Marsh Sheffield Shield debut for Victoria last month, will not play due to school commitments.
The two teams representing New South Wales also possess a wealth of experience, with Peter Forrest, who played 15 ODIs for Australia in 2012 and hit a century against Sri Lanka, to lead Hawkesbury.
Ex-Blues keeper Daniel Smith, who smashed a match-winning 89 from 47 balls in the NSW Premier Cricket T20 final against Hawkesbury, will captain Sydney Cricket Club, who have also included Sydney Sixers off-spinner Ben Manenti.
Queensland's Valley CC welcome back Lachlan Pfeffer from Sheffield Shield duties, joining fellow Bulls representatives Luke Feldman, Nick Stevens and Andrew Gode.
Adelaide Uni, who will have the advantage of playing at their home venue, will also be able to call on South Australia swing bowler Nick Winter.
Lindisfarne have included Tasmania and Hobart Hurricanes off-spinner Jarrod Freeman in their squad after emerging as state champions.
Fremantle (WA), Western District (ACT) and Desert Blaze (NT) will also take part in the tournament.
All 16 games will be live streamed HERE, including the semi-finals and finals to be played on March 4.
"Premier Cricket is a vital part of the Australian Cricket Pathway," said Cricket Australia national talent manager Graham Manou.
"The Fox Cricket National Premier Twenty20 Championships provides a platform to highlight the best of Premier Cricket from across the nation and for players to display their skills on a national stage.
"Importantly, it is also a way to acknowledge the people who contribute so much to their premier cricket clubs off the field."
