EXCO Meeting on January 31 @ KCC
  • Confirmation of the preparation of a draft budget for HKCA
    • However – this budget (to be ratified at next EXCO) shows a worrying financial position
    • Savings being looked for with HKCA
    • Use of High Performance Monies / ICC / CC grants to be improved
  • Confirmation of the HK Cricket 6s being a financial success
    • Costs were dramatically reduced and a footprint for future viability found
    • Further revenue streams to be developed next year
    • The money the 6s delivers should be for “development” not “support of HKCA
  • Congratulations to the Women’s Team on their result at ACC tournament
  • Concerns over School development

mdc update
MDC Update
  • Connie Wong / Keenu Gill

    • On field issue

    • Decision upheld and as such penalty multiplied (4 game ban to include Sunday cricket)
  • Points penalties imposed for Player Registrations
  • Junior Cricket
    • Over age junior players and lack of adult supervision
2013 2014 season
2013 -2014 Season
  • New Player Registration Process
    • Teams register their own players
    • Remove 3 game rule
    • Entered into Results Vault and invoiced by HKCA “pay as you play”
    • Reduce cost
  • Balls
    • Trial of Dukes balls (orange) in Saturday and Sunday Cup competitions
    • Better quality than Platypus / cheaper than Kookaburra
2013 2014 season1
2013 -2014 Season
  • Ground Concerns
    • OUR SINGLE BIGGEST ISSUE
    • HKU to undergo significant up grade (all Astro facility as per PKVR)
    • Lost for majority of 2013/2014 season
  • Penny’s Hill, Lantau(Disney)
    • Hotel designated land
    • Joint proposal between HKCA and HK Polo Association
    • PernodRicard are backing the Polo Association (approx 70% of cost)
    • But only need the facility 1 month – October – per year
    • 6 year lease
    • Possibilility to commence work in May 2013 for October (and therefore next season – from November – for Cricket)
    • 2 FULL SIZED GROUNDS
2013 2014 season2
2013 -2014 Season
  • What if HKU goes AND / OR we don’t secure Penny’s Hill AND / OR cant further develop/ secure Police Training Ground?
  • WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO PLAN FOR THIS NOW
  • There are some huge imbalances with the league in its current structure. Some players get to play 30+ games whilst others get a mere handful. This clearly needs to change.
  • Potential for Change to League Structure
    • 5 team Premier League playing 2 rounds of 50-over matches (20 matches) + 2 rounds ofT20 matches (20) = 16 games
    • 10 team Division One playing one round of 40-over matches (45) and 1 round of T20 matches (45) = 18 games
    • 10 team Division Two playing one round of 35-over matches (45) and 1 round of T20 matches (45) = 18 games
    • 10 team Division Three playing one round of 35-over matches (45) and 1 round of T20 matches (45) = 18 games
    • Moving from 50 to 40 overs on a Sunday will allow a T20 game first on that ground (8 am)
further detail
Further detail : -
  • All Premier League 50-over and Division 1 40-over matches will be played on Sundays.
  • All Division 2 & 3 (35-over matches) will be played on Saturdays and Public Holidays.
  • T20 matches will be played on Saturdays and Sundays and Public Holidays.
  • Divisions 1, 2 and 3 will have promotion and relegation (except league 1 no promotion and league 3 no relegation).
  • No premier league players allowed to play whatsoever in division 2 and 3 cricket. No restrictions on premier league players in division one.
  • Players can move between their 35 and 40 over teams within their club subject to a maximum of 3 players in anyone team from 40 over (Sunday) cricket.
  • Young cricketers (21 years and under) will be able to move teams freely within their club (increased from U17s)
the benefits and the negatives
The Benefits and the Negatives: -
  • The benefits of this league are as follows:
  • Works within our ground structure and has longevity if we do not gain more facilities. Allows more people, more cricket.
  • T20 cricket become widely played in Hong Kong would be good for the national team and, love it or hate it, it has become the most popular format globally.
  • Makes each league more balanced ability wise. Stops professionals playing in lower leagues. Allow the ambitious, structured teams to work their way up the leagues.
  • It ensures the best players are playing each other week in, week out. This is clearly a huge benefit to the national game which is the overriding driver for cricket in HK.
  • The negatives are:
  • We need to have 3 less teams in the leagues
  • 2 Day cricket is lost
  • 50 over cricket is lost to 40 over cricket for Sunday but still played at Premier League level (whilst this is clearly a negative as we play 50 over nationally - England reached world number 1 playing 40 over cricket domestically)
  • However, if HKU does come back on line as we hope, we will look to reintroduce 2 Day Premier League.
so we have a choice going forward
So – we have a choice going forward

Option 1

  • If HKU does not come back suitable for cricket we will have to either cull games for everyone or lose 4 teams just to stand still

Option 2

  • If HKU does come back we can continue with the season as is

Option 3

  • We adopt this new proposal
