Strong partnership has Alora ready for State
From back page “The WDCA needs to go down the T20 path and it really is here to stay.
“It’s not for everyone but the majority of players these days want to play it.
“The way the draw is structured, every side plays three games at least with the top two playing off in the final.
“Do we want to play five or six going forward, I’m not too sure, but at the moment I think three or four is the right number.
“It gives the fixture a good balance between two-day cricket, one-day cricket and then the shortest form.”
The new structure of the senior competition has also seen clubs compete in only one-day cricket for the first four weeks with another three limited overs clashes still to come before two-day games begin.
Triffitt said he was delighted with how the season had begun, both from a senior and junior perspective, and added the coloured clothing had been a hit with clubs.
“I think the competition has tightened right up, especially in the A grade,” he said.
“The introduction of the coloured clothing for one-day games has been well received and it’s been a strong start with the white-ball cricket.
“The structure of the new draw has been well received I think – we are playing a lot of one-day cricket to start but it gives players the chance to have seven bats and seven bowls in a couple of months.
“It takes the pressure off selection at club level – there is no need for interchange and clubs can get around players being unavailable a bit easier.”
