From Cricket Victoria:
This guide has been established to support Clubs and Associations in planning for a return to training and playing cricket when Victorian Government restrictions and health advice allows.
This is a guide only and will be updated based on State Government advice when the current Stage 4 (Metropolitan Melbourne) and Stage 3 (Regional areas) are eased to a point allowing training and/or playing to recommence.
As of 2 August 2020, community cricket is not permitted in any form in Victoria. This includes all forms of training and matches.
This will be in place until 13 September.
Cricket Victoria and your Peak Bodies (the VCCL, VMCU, VSDCA) strongly encourage all members of cricket clubs in Victoria to adhere to the laws and directions of the Chief Health Officer.
While exercise is permitted (with certain restrictions), we strongly urge all community cricketers to stay home when practicing cricket specific skills i.e. catching.
While clearly this is very different preparation to what we have known previously, this COVID-19 period has highlighted the need for flexibility and creativity. Ideas for younger players can be found on the Cricket Blast YouTube Channel.
Our aim is to ensure training and playing resumes smoothly when safe to do so. For that to happen in a timely manner will require a team effort. So please, follow the State Government and health advice and look out for your teammates.
