The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are currently leading a high performance review of the Men’s Professional Game and there has been a considerable amount of speculation surrounding any implications for the county game and in particular the structure and schedule of domestic competitions. The Club wanted to confirm that Yorkshire CCC will be fully engaged in this process and that our members will be consulted as part of this.

Following the analysis phase where a wide range of insight, data and opinions have been gathered, the next stage of the high performance review, led by Sir Andrew Strauss, will see regional consultation meetings being held that will involve County Chairs, CEOs and Directors of Cricket. Yorkshire CCC will then consult with its membership and deliver its feedback to the ECB ahead of the governing body presenting options to be considered by the First Class Counties. Any final decisions will be expected to be reached by the end of September.

As a members’ club, Yorkshire CCC operates with the best interests of its members at all times. On behalf of its Members, the Club will continue to stress the importance of a thriving domestic game, especially the County Championship.

Once the Club has received the ECB’s proposals, this will be communicated to Members to understand their views and gather further feedback.
