After some in depth discussion between New Zealand Cricket (NZC) and Cricket Web Under-19 Board, both parties have decided to move the Under 19 Series between the two nations to CWLand. This has been done in an attempt to reduce the impact the series may have on the Development League Clubs of Cricket Web. The new schedule for the series follows as:
21st - Squads Announced
23rd - 1st YODI @ CW Oval
24th - 2nd YODI @ PDV Dome
25th - 3rd YODI @ CWBCC Stadium
27th - 1st 'Youth Test' @ Goffmouth Park
29th - 2nd 'Youth Test' @ Pickford Reserve
The significant changes to this series are:
• There will be two separate squads of 12 or 13 for either form, where the 12th and 13th man will be released to play domestic cricket. Meaning only 11 players will be unavailable from each squad on any particular day.
• The maximum number of matches that any player will miss with the new schedule is three games.
• Also Goffmouth and Pickford host their first ever ‘internationals’
For reference, here is the original first post / schedule...
