    ***Official*** New Zealand Domestic Season 2015/16

    Cricket Wellington hope bumper Basin summer can make up shortfall | Stuff.co.nz

    The Basin Reserve will host all the Firebirds' home matches this season, with Karori Park not up to first-class standard and Westpac Stadium clearly not suited to domestic cricket on evidence of last year's dire crowds.

    That means four T20 Super Smash matches in November-December, with two Wednesday afternoon and two Sunday afternoon slots. There's also four 50-over matches and four Plunket Shield four-dayers, with CW agreeing to play one "home" shield match away due to not having a second viable first-class venue. With four Black Caps international matches in the city - two against Pakistan and two against Australia - CW hoped to capitalise and continue the cricket buzz from the World Cup.

    There was widespread agreement that last year's big T20 weekends at one venue didn't work, and CW was focused on drawing families to their upcoming Firebirds matches.

    Clinton also confirmed they would look to fill their two T20 import slots as they defend their title, albeit without the Champions League carrot.

    The domestic season makes its earliest start on record on October 15, when the Firebirds play Northern Districts at Hamilton's Seddon Park. It's not an ideal opener, with Northern's bevy of Black Caps including new ball pair Tim Southee and Trent Boult likely to be playing as a tune-up for the Australian tour.

    New Plymouth's Yarrow Stadium hosts the T20 finals weekend from December 11-13, due to Hamilton and Dunedin both hosting Sri Lanka tests during that period.

    The Karori park washouts were so annoying.

    Central Districts to win something. ND to be ok for 8 games, get their Black Caps for two and be overpowered during those games. Enginebury to win the Shield again. Auckland to disappoint in the red ball stuff as usual. Wellington to be less entertaining and make progress instead. Otago to win something and finish top three in the Shield on the back of smart buys.

    This is not going to be a good year for Wellington.

    I find myself hoping it is, if only to stop the Dom Post and Siddons from thinking that winning cricket lives and dies by his involvement (you know, ignoring the previous however many years).

    I could care less if Auckland win anything but very eager to see runs out of the likes of O'Donnell, Phillips etc.

    I think we may actually start to rebuild and grow stronger but I honestly think this season will be a hard one.

    Edgar is gifted. Somehow Wellington will finish mid table even though they may not have the team for it.

    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    Careful, I'll have to post the Papps wheelbarrow again.

    So glad to see the back of Siddons, though the **** imports are yet to hit the old dusty trail. Shame the change has come too late to save the careers of Boam, Brodie et. al.

    I think I will write a letter to the dom post praising him if Alekz day is given a plane ticket back to the Wollongong A league or whatever NSW feeder comp he was dominating.

    Good to see the T20s back at the Basin. CW meet up at a Wellington T20 home game?

    Happy to do so with sufficient notice as my Sunday's are quite busy (and I recall the games were on a Sunday?)
