With players’ releases from various international contracts negotiated and the MES oval mown to perfection we can bring you our very own tournament preview to whet your appetite before Saturday’s main course. We hope to see you down at MES tomorrow.
The Tournament will consist of two groups of three teams. Each team will play the others in the group once and then the top team from each group after those matches will meet in a final. The matches will be 7 overs per innings with standard BUCS indoor cricket regulations. Maximum 2 overs per bowler and batsmen must retire at 2(5) but can come back in if the team loses the rest of their wickets. If the last pair are batting and one of them is out, the not out batsman can continue as a last man/woman standing.
The tournament groups and Fixtures are as follows:
