    **Dev League Season 7**

    Good day men and women of the media and welcome to the seasonal pre-season Development League press conference. We are glad to have you all here as we release the much hyped new format, targeted starting date and squad assignments.

    The CWBCC, in our attempts to produce the best of players for the international front of the CW XI, has put in much thought on improvements to the Dev League ahead of Season 7. As you should all know, last season saw a change in format that allowed for 36 competitive games per team and proved extremely successful both in crowd draw and player performance. With that in mind, we hope to build onward and thus have altered the format once more, keeping the same basic principles of Season 6.

    The following is an outline of the changed format:

    - Subsidized to just 6 teams
    - 2 foreign teams will join four Cricket Web teams - Green, Red, Blue and Black
    - 15 players per basic squad, 17 players inclusive of internationals (CW XI players)
    - Teams play each other twice at each venue (home and away) which equates 4 meetings between the teams

    The teams which have been invited to compete in the next season of the Dev League are Australia 'A' and England 'A'. No firm response as yet from their respective Cricket Boards however.

    Depending on fan response (please let us know in this thread), there may be the institution a 25-over per side tournament for the entertainment of the general public. This will be held interspersed at points during the season.

    The Cricket Web squads for Season 7 are as follows:

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."[/SIZE][/CENTER]

    I volunteer to captain/vice captain the Blues. I'd also like to announce my displeasure that the pitches are not spin friendly. Spin is a fine art, we're not going to get any spinners like this.

    On a good note, the 25 over per side competition would be genius. It would add some much needed fun to the season.

    Looking forward to my debut with CW Black.

    25 Overs a side competition sounds good.

    You know there's something wrong with you when you're nervous about your first game of simulation cricket. *dies*

    Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

    Very happy to get the call up for CW Green....also hope to play a bit on the PDV Dome (CW oval aint that bad either...).

    The 25 over matches do sound fun, as other cricketers have already pointed out....

    For now just sit back and relax until Season 7 starts. More info to come soon. Stay tuned.

    Does anyone have a contact for Jason Toogood?

    having played for the blues all my career (and being very happy there) i am extremely disspointed at being traded into the black squad. i will do many things to get back in... please tell me it is possible!!!! i am a huge blues supporter, and there is no amount of money that could tempt me to join cw black. please selectors, i beg you to reinstate me into the blues squad. having my good mates muhaffy and halsey at blue is also part of my wanting to join the blues. please reconsider my selection.
