The Cricketweb XI will be starting a domestic league to help with selection of tour sqauds. Keep in mind this is not an international league.
It will be called the development league and it will comprise of minnow teams, 'A' teams and Youth teams playing against the CWXI Development Team. The team will allow players not contracted to go on a tour to keep their cricketing skills sharp by continuing to play in domestic cricket.
In addition, we will be introducing an injury system. This way, if a player gets injured or is out of form, he or she may be dropped and an 'in-form' player called up to replace him/her. The league is essentially Cricketweb XI's County Cricket. It will be called the Development League.
The League should begin after the current tour of South Africa and will be accompanied by the contracted squad being cut from 18 players to 15 for the next tour - to the West Indies. As such, the Developemnt League will be run in the WI at the time to save money (yes, we're cheap :P) in travel fees. Once again this is not an international league.
We encourage any new players to sign up to play for the Development Team.
I hope everyone understands the concept of this league and that people will sign up.
