New format for BCL season
There will be a new format when the 2018 Barbados Cricket League (BCL) domestic season bowls off today at various grounds around the country from 1:30 p.m.
The BCL’s board of management has decided that due to a reduction of teams, only matches in the Super League and Premier League will be played over three days.
The other zones will be combined into one division and all the matches will be two-day encounters.
As a result, there will be a limited-overs feature and the first innings of each team will be restricted to 30 overs on the opening day.
On the second and final day, there will be normal cricket as teams hunt a victory.
Meanwhile, the C.O. Williams Construction Champion Of Champions Mitchie Hewitt final will be played at Lears tomorrow between Sunrise and Bathsheba.
The match, which starts at 12:30 p.m., will be a 30-overs-per-side encounter.
Sunrise reached the final by defeating Lodge Road while their match against Goodwill Cavaliers was rained out.
On the other hand, Bathsheba defeated both Indian Ground and Transporters North. (EZS)
