REDLANDS has four players in Queensland's under-17 male squad to compete at the national titles in October.

The 14-man squad includes Dylan Kritzinger as the captain, fellow batsman Stephan Muller, off-spinning allrounder Jackson Sinfield and pace bowler Josh Smith, an Australian under-16 representative last year.

Queensland will also have two representatives in the Cricket Australia under-16 team that will compete in the under-17 titles, with another Redlands player, Luke Davies, as well as Toombul's Tom Balkin included in that squad.

The championships will be hosted in Mackay and include matches under lights at Great Barrier Reef Arena at Harrup Park.

Queensland will again be coached by former English international Adam Hollioake and Queensland Cricket youth pathways coach John Davison.

Mackay Cricket Association, in co-operation with Harrup Park Country Club, is hosting the national championships, with the event being held in Mackay in its entirety for the first time after the city co-hosted last year.

Queensland and ACT/NSW Country shared last year's championship trophy, after rain forced a draw in the final at Allan Border Field in Brisbane.

Kritzinger and Sinfield played in the joint-championship team last year.
