The continued development of young Bay of Plenty cricket talent will take another step forward, at Owen Delaney Park in Taupo on Sunday (13 January 2019), when a Bay of Plenty Development XI will meet their Hawkes Bay counterparts.
While the game is considered a non-competition “friendly” encounter, the match at the half way point between the two provinces, is the opportunity to continue the development of a young group of Bay of Plenty players.
Bay of Plenty Cricket Pathways Manager Tai Bridgman-Raison said “Continuing to build depth is a key part of ensuring Bay of Plenty continues to be a leading district association. With that in mind, the fixture against Hawkes Bay, is an ideal opportunity to further expose our younger players to inter-district cricket”.
“Taupo is the ideal venue for the encounter being half way between the two provinces and also providing high quality wickets at Owen Delaney Park”.
The Bay of Plenty side is essentially an Under 19 team, with a number of players having continued their education at secondary school in the past twelve months.
