    Dvca - Competition Restructure

    I don't know of many sides who don't already use 5 bowlers, especially in the lower grades. And fielding restrictions is tough enough to officiate when a lot of the umpires outside shield grades are absolutely hopeless. In the lower grades implementing fielding restrictions would be even tougher...

    Barclay Shield 18/19

    What I have heard from talking to some umpires is that the umpires as a group are furious that Johnson got off. He was reported by the umpires on the day as a moderate report. This means even with an early plea it would have been reduced to 1 match, meaning he would have missed the GF. Once the...

    Dvca - Competition Restructure

    Sides over a 3 year period differ so much though that I'm not sure playing all 30 clubs over 3 years would tell you much.

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    In the grades below the shield cricket there is quite a few umpires who are just far too old. Virtually no hearing and poor eye sight. But they keep rocking up week in week out because that extra cash goes nicely with their pensions. The DVCA really needs to tap a few on the shoulder and say...

    Money Shield 18/19

    On that, is football played there? If its not, why wasn't the upgrade planned for winter?

    Barclay Shield 18/19

    Returning to local cricket is not an indicator of whether they made it at a higher level or not, I'm sure there's plenty of reasons people return to local level other than performance

    I hope you don’t consider Huss Hanif a ‘great’ pick up

    Or keep the Tuesday night regional T20 comp and if there’s enough demand have a seperate DVCA mid-week T20 comp

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    I don’t mind opening up 20/20 cricket to more but players. But I’m not sure that the regular season is the way to do it. I agree with what was mentioned earlier that it’s not necessarily in the best interested in regards to young player development. Also finals cricket is 2 day cricket so teams...

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    I know what you are saying, plus you have guys away with footy trips etc, etc. And this year I believe the lower grades started at the same time as the juniors. But I remember last year the juniors went back before the lower senior grades which isn't a good look

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    Those costs have to be covered though, usually through subs, which for a lot of blokes in lower grades already struggle with. But you aren't putting more overs in the same time frame, you want to extend playing conditions an extra hour and half for lower grades (lower grades start at 1 and...

    I dunno about OPs, but I would have thought most clubs would be looking around at this time of year as to whats out there unless they already have someone signed?

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    When have all 22 blokes in a grade below D all arrived before quarter to 1 anyway? Rarely happens. My understanding is four piece balls aren't used in lower grades purely to keep costs down. Agree with starting the lower grades at the same date as the higher grades. In previous years the...

    Barclay Shield 2017/18

    Macleod was doing well until Tim Wise's run out, until that point it looked as if they could post a score that would have given their bowlers something to bowl at.

    Money Shield 2017/18

    I agree also. Only have to look at Lower Plenty. 5 or 6 years ago didn't have a junior side, had to get special permission to stay affiliated with the DVCA. Currently struggling, no doubt in part to lack of juniors emerging through the ranks. But at the time, they paid someone to be their junior...

    True if that's the case. Would speak volumes though on the club that plays either of those blokes this weekend
