The latest news, sport, entertainment, jobs, motors and property from the Maidenhead Advertiser, covering East Berkshire and South Bucks.

Whilst no date has yet been set for the resumption of club cricket, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has given approval for the professional men’s county cricket season to begin on August 1.

The format for the return of the delayed men’s county season are due to be agreed by the 18 first class counties early this month, with a new fixture schedule to follow.

The ECB has also made a commitment to play the women’s domestic cricket season and said further news on that situation was ‘forthcoming’.

Preparation and planning for the start of the new season remains subject to ongoing health advice from government, with the safety of players, staff and officials the number one priority.

ECB Chief Executive Officer, Tom Harrison, said: “It is a significant step for our game that we are able to approve the start of the men’s domestic season for 1 August and one which will be welcomed by everyone connected with County Cricket.

»It follows extensive consultation between the 18 First-Class Counties, the Professionals Cricketers’ Association and ECB and has only been achievable thanks to the significant hard work that continues to occur as we prepare for a domestic season unlike any the game has faced before.

“It must be stressed that the safety of our players, staff and officials has been the first priority through all discussions and Government guidance will continue to shape our planning and preparation.

“Planning for the return of the women’s domestic game remains ongoing, but our commitment to women’s domestic cricket is unwavering and we look forward to sharing further news shortly. »
