Changes to the structure of the Murray Valley Cricket Association have the Rhinos excited for the new season.July 25, 2014 3:55am
After a hugely successful 2013/14 season in the Murray Valley Cricket Association, the Deniliquin Rhinos are back and ready for more.
In their debut season, the Rhinos claimed the one-day premiership and played in the T20 and two-day grand finals.
It was a grand entrance to a strong competition, and the side’s first outing of 2014/15 will be a one-day match against powerhouse Strathmerton on October 11.
The upcoming MVCA season, however, will feature a different structure to previous years.
‘‘Rather than play all the one-day games before Christmas and then the two-day games after Christmas, there’ll be a mix of both throughout the season,’’ Rhinos captain Brad Todd said.
‘‘There will also be no T20 games played.’’
The new format was decided upon at the association’s recent annual general meeting.
In another bold move, the competition will no longer split in two after Christmas.
The structure of finals games has also changed and will feature the top six teams rather than the top four.
‘‘So far the draw has only been released for the first two rounds - we take on Jerilderie in round two,’’ Todd said.
‘‘That means Strathmerton and Jerilderie are the only teams we play twice during the season.’’
The Rhinos’ first training session is being held at the RSL nets from 11.30am on Sunday, August 3. It will be the first of a number of trial sessions.
‘‘A selection process will take place to join the Rhinos squad for the 2014/15 season,’’ Todd said.
‘‘We want all initial Rhinos team members and any new players interested in trying out to attend these sessions.
‘‘A barbecue lunch will be available after training.’’
The Deniliquin Rhinos offer various sponsorship packages and are looking for new sponsors for the upcoming season.
