Player availability

 

This season has seen the worst availability of players for many seasons with players missing games for reasons which are often difficult to fathom and players dropping out on Fridays and Saturday mornings

The cricket season is one of the shortest sporting seasons lasting only four months for the league season yet players are missing many games making selection difficult.

I really feel that players should be available for 15 out of 18 league games as a commitment to the club. We have to field 44 players on a Saturday and 11 on a Sunday and we have already used 64 players so we should be able to field four sides comfortably.

 

The next time you are unavailable think about the Captains and Cricket Manager who are making dozens of calls each week. The next time you drop out on a Friday or Saturday think about how that effects your teams mates and also how if effects all teams.

 

Do not think that someone else will play because we have plenty of players this is not the case.
