Under 12 inter-area tournament, 2017

Tim Hart writes, “Five area cricket development groups have entered the 2017 Under 12 inter-area development tournament.  The tournament continues to be about trying to provide additional opportunities for players to develop through playing matches.  As with last year, the 2017 tournament will have an eight-a-side format – however, teams may agree to make their matches eleven-a-side.  The length of the matches has changed too, with all official tournament matches now being T20s.  It is also hoped that it might be possible for two of the planned fixture dates to run in a ‘Super Day’ format, where three teams would each play two matches.  Full details are available online here.”
