Profile

The best cricket move Michael Klinger ever made was switching from Victoria to South Australia for the 2008-09 season. Klinger was struggling with the Bushrangers but immediately sparked with the Redbacks and quickly became a batsman as consistent as Darren Lehmann or Greg Blewett, two former local favourites. The performances were so strong that after two summers in Adelaide he was appointed captain and was often mentioned for higher honours.
