Held in Hamilton and Dunkeld, players representing Vic Metro u19, Vic Country u19, CV Emerging Colts u18 and South Australia u19 competed in a series of 50 over and Twenty20 matches, as well as skills competitions.
Almost 50 Victorian cricketers were given the opportunity to test themselves in a representative environment in the absence of the under 19 National Championships.
A select group of under 18 players were also given the opportunity to impress national selectors ahead of next season’s National Championships.
Cricket Victoria would like to thank Monivae College (Hamilton), Head Groundsmen and match day coordinators Steve Field and Lachie Field, Grampians Cricket Club, College Cricket Club, Southern Grampians Shire, Cricket Australia, South Australian Cricket Association, as well as all players, staff, officials and families.
