ADELAIDE and Port Adelaide will join forces to raise funds for the SA bushfire appeal in a charity Twenty20 cricket game at Adelaide Oval on Sunday, February 2.
Star cricketers, including Australian Test batsman Travis Head, will also take to the field in the special encounter that has been dubbed the Bushfire T20 Showdown.
All net proceeds will raise funds for people directly affected by bushfires in Cuddle Creek and on Kangaroo Island.
Crows stars Rory Sloane and Taylor Walker, along with Port Adelaide captain Tom Jonas and former skipper Travis Boak, are confirmed starters for the game.
Crows chief executive Andrew Fagan said the thoughts of everyone in the Crows family were with those families impacted by the bushfire crisis.
"The bushfires have been devastating for families across South Australia, and we are thinking of those on Kangaroo Island right now, who continue to battle blazes which threaten their homes and livelihoods," Fagan said.
"We hope this event can provide an opportunity for footy and cricket fans to come together as a show of support for those affected as well as raise much-needed funds to support the recovery efforts."
Port Adelaide chief executive Keith Thomas said it had been a tough time for the state.
"It's with a heavy heart we're in this position," Thomas said.
"Our goal is to raise as much money as we possibly can for those people affected and to let them know we're with them."

Jonas said the Power had a few strong cricketers within their ranks.
"(Vice-captain) Hamish Hartlett rates himself, he reckons he used to keep in front of (Australian one-day international wicketkeeper) Alex Carey in juniors," Jonas said.
"Boaky's handy, so is Ryan Burton and we've got a couple of coaches that have played a bit of state juniors."
Head, a keen Power supporter, will bolster their side, while the Crows will also have the services of a handful of gun cricketers, who have yet to be announced.
Tickets will be $20 for adults, $5 for kids and $40 for families.
Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, January 14 at 9am through Ticketek.
