Big week for cricket’s next generation

If history is any indication, a sweep of New Zealand’s future Domestic cricket stars will be on display in Lincoln over the next six days.

The NZC Men’s Under 17 National Tournament brings together the best fresh-faced talents from the six New Zealand Major Associations, with defending champions Auckland Under 17 out to add yet another trophy to Auckland Cricket’s cabinet this summer after convincing national championship titles for their Auckland Under-20 Women and Auckland Under-19 Men teams already in 2018/19.

Should they do so, Auckland Under 19 will rack up a rare three-peat at National Under 17 level after having lifted the national crown from Canterbury in 2016/17 and then backing up last season.
