Cricket Australia announces revised junior formats

25 August 2016

Fun, action and skill development at forefront of new changes

The way junior cricket is played in Australia is set to change with format revisions designed to increase fun, action and skill development for young players. 

Following Cricket in Australia being one of the most popular and highest participation sports with a record 1,311,184 participating around the nation last year, achieving a 16% growth in junior participation, Cricket Australia wants to ensure every child in Australia has an opportunity to access and enjoy the game.

Revised pitch lengths, boundary sizes and the option of playing Twenty20 are amongst the changes to allow juniors to better develop their skills and become more involved in each game.
