NZC Expand Domestic Twenty20

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have expanded the domestic Twenty20 competition to two rounds ahead of the World Cup in South Africa next year.

NZC chief executive Martin Snedden said that with the inaugural domestic Twenty20 competition earlier this year bringing fans back to the domestic game, and with the World Cup being held next year, it was the prefect time to expand on the success of the first tournament.

Canterbury won the first domestic Twenty20 competition in Feburary this year beating Auckland by six wickets at the Eden Park Outer Oval.

The expanded competition will start on January 11th with the final being held on February 3rd. The State Shield will start on December 23rd with the final on February 10th, while the State Championship starts on November 15th with the final on March 22nd.
