COMPETITION OVERVIEW

 

The SACA Premier Cricket competition has a rich and diverse history that has accommodated some of the world’s most prolific cricketers. Since its inception in the 1897 season, the competition has undergone a series of name changes. Originally referred to as ‘electorate cricket’ until 1905, the competition was then known as ‘District cricket’ between 1905 until 1993. The competition will be renamed the West End Premier Cricket Competition, effective as of season 2015/16.


The Premier Cricket 2017-18 season will commence on 14 October and will offer 14 various grades, including Two-Day, One-Day and Twenty20 formats of the game for men, women and juniors. Highlights of the upcoming season will include a Country Round for the Women’s 1st Grade and a FeBLUary round across all grades on 10 and 17 February 2018.
