    BARCLAY SHIELD 2022/23

    Well funny you mention the "health check" as I was wondering this week, the average age of the competition say from E grade up. I wonder if the DVCA have even thought about this, as if the average age is above 35, I'd say the comp could be in trouble in say, 10 years. I'm also interested in my...

    BARCLAY SHIELD 2022/23

    I don't know why you'd want to restrict it to under 25s, that just seems unnecessary. From what I've seen, most clubs do have the BBQ on and the beers cold, at least they were at Mont on Tuesday. I don't think I've been to a DVCA club in the T20 comp that hasn't been well attended. I've been at...

    DVCA Off-Season 2022

    I think we will play, looks like Friday will be fine then the rain will come in Saturday evening and keeps going through to Wednesday, so the T20 might cop it again.

    I don't take it off, never know who might be trying to read your brainwaves.

    Just wait for the media to beat up this new wave of chinaflu, we could be back to masks and no drinks soon enough, especially after the election.

    No I wouldn't bother counting them, just start fresh.

    DVCA Off-Season 2022

    A few of us were talking tonight and this idea came up. Last year we started Nov 13th and played all 1 dayers, as suggested by one of us; just scrap the next 2 weeks, get the racing out of your system and kick off fresh on Nov 12th for a 1 day season. That way you're also giving the grounds some...

    2022 ICC T20 World Cup - October/November 2022

    Two massive wides and a big full toss no ball in the last over...nothing $u$pect about that......

    4-6 weeks more of rain so they say. At least the kids should get a start on Wednesday night.

    I wouldn't think we are much of a chance. The rain will probably stop overnight, but it won't be enough time for the grounds to dry sufficiently.

    DVCA Off-Season 2022

    If you start cutting back other sports will jump on the opportunity and those lost times will never come back. I remember when Saturday morning juniors was abandoned, there were other sports just waiting to fill the void. Ok, so two clubs have gone, is this because of declining player numbers...

    I don't think we should knee jerk and just outright take cricket away from October. Playing less cricket isn't the answer, it won't always be this wet.

    Will be lucky to get games in next week as well. 70mm forecast to drop between Wednesday and Friday. Grounds need a good week to dry out but don't look like getting it this month.

    So have we pulled the pin yet? Either that or bring your flippers tomorrow

    DVCA Off-Season 2022

    I prefer the game without having to bring arvo tea. If you want something to eat, just bring your own food. The same goes for drinks, was more than handy just wandering off for 10 at a drinks break, gives a chance to sit down for 5 and apply some more sunscreen. I do agree though we shouldn't be...

    Might be some dreaded Sunday games on the horizon. I can't see our ground being ready next week either. Our 1s have been moved to Telfer.

    DVCA Off-Season 2022

    I don't think there is any coincidence that those 3 teams have 5+ senior sides, which makes it hard on their ground allocation. One or two changes to the 1s fixture will multiply down the grades, drawing in more teams as they juggle grounds. Unfortunately this will be the way with the relegation...

    You know it took 5 meetings and a 200 reply long email chain to come to the decision to have white pants and coloured shirts too. I mean I just assume they wasted all their time talking about that in the off season since no one can be stuffed updating the website for the last 2 years. Hopeless.....

    Most people wouldn't play for Greensborough even if you paid them.
