12.30pm start

WHAT'S THE IDEA?

12.30pm start for all Saturday games, all season.


DISCUSSION
Great idea for bad light problems late in the day and getting home before 7pm after the game.

Not so great for anyone transferring from junior cricket in the morning (groundskeepers, parents, junior players.)

For many years QSDCA has started at 12.30pm for the first 5 or 6 weeks of the season. That's approximately from Round 1 to 5. The changeover to 1pm start is at the end of October.

Some of these dates clash with junior cricket on a regular basis. How do junior cricket issues affect players in September and October?

In season 2016/17 we had a 12.30pm start for a one day game which coincided with the first day/night test match at the Gabba in December.

There is no corresponding early start in March.

Typically there is only 1 or 2 regular Saturdays matches in March.

Most QSDCA cricket played in March is finals played 10am to 5pm.
