• The only National Cricket Weeks that will go ahead in December are the following:
– Boys and Girls Under 19 Cricket Weeks.

• All National Weeks will be of 5-day duration and the format of each week will vary according to the logistics at the seat of the cricket week.
• The SA Schools and SA Schools Colts/Fillies team will be announced and capped, however, the Representative Match will not be played.
