Cornwall County Cricket Club will not be playing any competitive cricket in 2020.
The ECB Cricket Committee has approved the cancellation of all National Counties competitions for 2020 in line with the other national competitions.
Any matches that may take place will be locally arranged ‘friendlies’ ideally between neighbouring counties.
Following the cancellation of three-day championship cricket earlier in the summer, the NCCA surveyed counties to see if they wished to play one-day cricket,
once COVID-19 restrictions allowed.
NCCA formulated proposals for a revised T20 tournament to be played in four regional groups on Sundays 9 Aug – 6 Sept leading to a finals day on 13 September with all the current restrictions in place – no catering, no changing facilities, independent travel, hygiene measures etc.
Cornwall were in favour of the proposals despite facing the two longest trips in the competition.
Their visits to Herefordshire and Wiltshire were the only two of the 40 proposed group fixtures above 200 miles each way.
Cornwall was due to host Dorset and Devon.
The proposals were put to a Zoom meeting of all 20 counties on Monday 20th July and defeated by 11 votes to 9 votes.
National Counties have been informed that if they plan to play any friendly fixtures the Host County advises their opposition and NCCA that the Host club has conducted a Risk Assessment in-line with Government and ECB Guidance.
