Profile

The best cricket move Michael Klinger ever made was switching from Victoria to South Australia for the 2008-09 season. He 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 he was appointed captain for two seasons and often mentioned for higher honours but was never given a chance at the highest level.
