The 2017 Australian Masters Indoor Cricket Championships will begin today in Canberra.
Twenty-one teams will compete across four divisions - 35 & Over Men, 40 & Over Men, 45 & Over Men and 50 & Over Men - at Action Indoor Sports Kambah.
The tournament will run from Sunday 21 May until Saturday 27 May, with all four division finals to be played on the final day of competition.
Queensland dominated the 2016 edition of the Masters Indoor Cricket Championships, winning the 40 & Over, 45 & Over and 50 & Over Men’s divisions. New South Wales won the 35 & Over Men’s division.
Queensland teams also make up the majority of this year’s competition, with a side from Queensland and North Queensland participating in all four divisions. The ACT, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia also have multiple teams competing, while South Australia is represented in the 50 & Over Men’s division.
Twelve matches will be live-streamed via www.indoor.cricket.com.au and the Cricket Australia Indoor Facebook Page across 26 May and 27 May, including all division preliminary finals and finals.
At this year’s event, players will not only be competing for national championships, but also for individual honours.
Four Australian teams will be selected to compete at the 2017 Trans-Tasman Masters Series being played in Tauranga, New Zealand, in October.
