Western Australia Warriors - Armed for battle

The Western Warriors is an Australian first class cricket team based in Perth, Western Australia. Its home ground is the WACA Ground.

The Western Warriors finished runners up to Victorian bushrangers in KFC bigbash, but they were on a winning streak of four matches before losing to Victorian bushrangers in the final. If there ever was an poll to select the deserving winner of that KFC final it would have been them but Sport doesn't care about if's and but's only results matters. They have an wonderful opportunity come December 3rd to redeem themselves in champions league cricket.

Marcus North captains the side, He is the recipient of Walter Lawrence Trophy, the award for scoring for fastest century during the 2007 English season . So the fans can expect some big hits from Marcus North.Adam Voges is North's vice-captain.

This western Australian is packed with players who have proven their skills at the Indian Premier League, their experience playing in Indian conditions and in a format similar to champions League will definitely come handy.

Some of the notable members of the squad who played in Indian Premier League Adam Gilchrist ( Deccan Chargers), Luke Ronchi (Mumbai Indians), and Shaun Marsh ( Punjab Kings XI). Players who have played in India before Brad Hogg, and Chris Rogers.

This is side looks the better of all the team in competition on paper but unfortunately Champions league is not played on paper,they have to find a way to use all the experience they have in playing the conditions to win matches. This side has the stars and the experience to win this tournament. I rate them as favourites for the title along with chennai super kings.

If they play to their potential this side is next to unbeatable.Look out they are armed and ready.

Western Australian Warriors Squad:

Marcus North (C), Adam Voges, David Bandy, Nathan Coulter Nile, Arron Crawford, Liam Davis, Paul Davis, Brett Dorey, Theo Doropoulos, Ben Edmonson, Aaron Heal, Clint Heron, Michael Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Matthew Johnston, Trent Kelly, Steve Magoffin, Shaun Marsh, Luke Pomersbach, Wesley Robinson, Luke Ronchi, Craig Simmons
