Cricket Tasmania is consulting with the Premier League Committee and club presidents to decide final standings on this season’s table, and will make an announcement on who the Premiers will be in coming days.
We know many people in the cricket community will be disappointed with this decision, but it has been made in our communities’ best interests in line with government and expert medical advice from Cricket Australia’s medical team.
CA and CT acknowledge that this is a more extreme step than communicated in previous weeks, but our advice now is that the risks of playing organised sport at any level are too high to safely continue.
Our number one priority is to the cricket communities that we lead and serve, as well as their families.
Thank you for your commitment to cricket in your community. All of our thoughts are with you and your families as you navigate these uncertain times.
