Cricket Australia Announced a full Domestic fixture for the 2020-21 summer as confidence grows for a bumper summer of cricket
There are five main competitions which make up the top tier of Australian domestic cricket: three men’s comps (the Sheffield Shield, one-day cup, and Big Bash League) and the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) and Women’s Big Bash League.
The Sheffield Shield is the premier first-class competition in the world. The 2019-20 season was cut short, with the final round of competition cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the finals quickly following suit.
The men’s domestic one-day cup runs from September 20 to November 26, broken into three instalments of fixtures in between Sheffield Shield games for the first time in recent memory. Each team plays seven games before the top two face each other in the final.
