New domestic cricket season gets underway


The start of September means the start of cricket in Hong Kong with junior's, men's and women's leagues getting underway at Tin Kwong Road Recreation Ground and PKVR Park.

The senior leagues kick off with USRC/MCC taking on Diasqua Little Sai Wan and Craigengower Cricket Club facing off against Pakistan Association Cricket Club.

"CHK identified the need for a more diversified league structure and as such have reintroduced a premier T20 competition which will run in the lead up to the HK T20 Blitz giving our domestic players a great opportunity to prepare for that tournament," said Programmes Coordinator Matt Stiller.

"With the introduction of the new gin drinkers bay ground which is scheduled to open on the 14th oct juniors will now play nearly three times the number of matches than last year"

All senior matches will be live scored on CricHQ, not only allowing increased engagement with domestic leagues but also helping for better solutions in rain-affected matches.

"For the 2017-18 season CHK has implemented live scoring through CricHQ application which has meant Duckworth-Lewis can now be used to decided rain interrupted matches and done away with the old clunky net run rate system"    

"Kowloon CC are also chosing to implement a live stream of all their home matches, which is done through the CricHQ application, meaning a wider range of fans can follow the game from anywhere in the world."

A full list of fixtures across all leagues is available on CricHQ and you can always check in with the latest competition information via the hkcricket.org home page by clicking the green 'fixtures and results' tab.
