Junior format changes

08.31.2017

The NZ Cricket District Forum , which involved all district and majors associations, was held in mid-June. 

The backdrop to this year’s forum was One CricketOne Cricket is a full national review of strategy and structure around cricket in New Zealand. It’s about positioning the game for the future.

The project outcome is To better position cricket in New Zealand so that it remains relevant and is able to thrive in a changing environment”.

There’s a plethora of things happening under One Cricket.

NZC engaged with Cricket Australia around junior formats and Cricket Australia sent its research team to the NZC Forum.

The changes Cricket Australia had brought into year 5-8 cricket impressed everyone at the forum.

They are about less wides, more hits off the bat, more runs, more boundaries and less dot balls.

In order to provide a consistent, coordinated, and aligned national approach to the development of players, NZ Cricket is making the adaptations to year 5-8 cricket compulsory next season.

The CMCA junior panel, staff, and board, has studied the changes and fully endorses them. In fact, many of the recommended changes to junior cricket have already been introduced by CMCA, some of them a decade ago.

Therefore, it has been agreed that we will make the changes to the competition formats for year 5/6 and year 7/8 cricket this season.

We believe that by increasing our kids involvement in the game we will keep them in cricket for longer.
