A wicketkeeper who was overlooked for state duties during the incumbency of Tim Nielsen, Mark Sorell has since then made his mark as a coach. After guiding the South Australia women's team he was handed the reins of the Australia women and during his time in charge the side won 17 of their 21 ODIs. Moving back to Adelaide in the 2007 off-season, Sorell signed a two-year deal to take over from Wayne Phillips as South Australia's coach. He intended to use a "back-to-basics" approach to lift the Redbacks out of the slump that saw them finish last on the Pura Cup table in 2006-07. During his playing days, Sorell represented the South Australia Second XI, spent time in league cricket in Lancashire, and enjoyed 12 seasons with the Salisbury District club in Adelaide.
