T20 League Update

Having five T20 teams for the first time has presented us with some unique challenges and opportunities, especially in terms of scheduling. For Season 2017, we have decided to split in-season matches into two stages:

Stage One
Every team plays every other team once, fighting for points which will determine ranking.

Stage Two
Teams will play off, depending on their ranking from Stage One.

FINAL
At the conclusion of Stage Two, the top two sides will play a Final.

T20 matches are now listed in our BCC calendar.
Weekday training schedule will be released ASAP.

History of Cric7
Cric7 is a cricket tournament format that has been very popular in Sri Lanka for several years. The aim is to ensure that matches are quick, hence every team gets to play plenty of cricket during this all day event.

BCC first introduced a men’s Cric7 tournament in 2010. In 2016, BCC took the initiative to introduce the Cric7 to our women cricketers, which proved to be an overwhelming success.

Tournament Format
We play a round-robin format, so every team gets a good chance to show off (or improve) their skills.

Cric7 is played with hard tennis ball, rather than a leather cricket ball. It is considered very safe for beginners and players of all skill levels.

With 7 players on field (rather than the usual 11), it is always a challenge for the captain to place their fielders in the right areas. Matches are generally high scoring, and therefore more entertaining for spectators. Cric7 is also unique in that only 5 balls are bowled per over.

Practice / Training
Prior to the event, BCC will dedicate 1-2 hours of practice/training sessions for those that want a free crash course on what cricket is all about and also try some batting and bowling. Training session will also include some physical conditioning workouts to make it even more fun.

Matches will be broadcast live via Youtube and/or Facebook.
