How’s That? The Premier’s Masters CricketOld Australia Vs Old Rest Of The World

At Château Tanunda, Barossa Valley, Thursday 24th November 2005 in support of the David Hookes Foundation

The Hon. Mike Rann, Premier of South Australia and Château Tanunda, will host the second Premier’s Master Cricket Day on Thursday 24th November 2005, featuring two celebrity teams in support of the David Hookes Foundation.

This day is a special Cricket Festival Fund Raiser – a day of networking and fun backed by a festival cricket match at historic Château Tanunda, Barossa food and wine and superb South Australian hospitality. For the second year, the Premier’s Invitation Australia XI, including the Premier, will pad up to play a Rest of the World Foundation XI invitation side, representing the David Hookes Foundation. Both teams include well-known international players (over 17 ex-international players joined us for the inaugural match last year), along with cricket-playing personalities and celebrities.

The Premier’s Masters is an invitation match. Profits derived from the day are donated to Organ Transplant Units in South Australia as directed by the David Hookes Foundation.

Guests are able to mingle with current and past Cricketing Legends and Heroes from 11am ‘til late, while enjoying food, wine and the hospitality of one of the Barossa’s most famous wineries, Château Tanunda.

The Rest of the World XI will be captained by New Zealander Martin Crowe. Other invited players include: DK Morrison, Dipak Patel, Barry Richards, Courtney Walsh, Jeff Crowe, Mark Nicholas, Carl Hooper and Kepler Wessels.

The Premier’s Australia XI invited players include: Greg Matthews, Shane Lee, Geoff Lawson, Michael Slater, Darren Lehmann, Dean Jones, Ian Healy, Kerry O’Keeffe, Wayne Phillips, Wayne Holdsworth and the Premier himself, The Hon Mike Rann.

Tim Gilbert, Channel Nine media and sports personality, will be the Master of Ceremonies for the day with Michael Holding making a special commentator appearance.

The venue is truly exceptional. The private cricket ground overlooks the rolling hills and vineyards of the world famous Barossa Valley, with the historic Château Tanunda winery (est. 1890) as an impressive backdrop.

Relive the era of the past that recalls the genteel ‘county cricket’ days with an event that showcases the best of South Australian and Australian cricket by combining:

- A major world cricket event - the Australia vs West Indies Test at Adelaide Oval

- Excellence in Cricket

- Australia’s premier wine region - The Barossa - with its exceptional food and wine culture

- An Australian icon & heritage winery - Château Tanunda - offering world class service and experiences

Jane Wilson, NZ Regional Manager, South Australian Tourism commission comments, “This is a great chance for cricket fans to combine a visit to one of the world’s most famous wine regions with some of the world’s most well-known cricket legends.”
