CORNWALL CRICKET LEAGUE adapts to new format

CornwallCricket portraitThe Cornwall Cricket League plans to introduce competitive games later this month as recreational step four adapted cricket has been given the Government green light to start next Saturday (July 11).

The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are set to publish playing guidance to allow “competitive cricket matches with adjustments to respect hygiene and social distancing” in England this week.

The Cornwall Cricket League are conducting a follow-up survey to confirm clubs intent on participation with a request for replies by July 13.

In the first survey only 54% of member clubs voted to play adapted cricket in a structured group format.

The league will formulate groups and produce fixtures, hopefully to be published by July 18.

The plan is for matches to start on July 25. 

That will allow eight Saturdays until September 12 for competitive Cornish club cricket.

Clubs are encouraged to use July 11 and 18 for warm-up matches.

The league were one of the last in the country to formally, reluctantly cancel their regular season programme, on Friday (July 3).
