An update from CEO Tim Bostock following yesterday’s announcement

Durham Cricket are delighted with yesterday’s news following the announcement that the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has given its approval for the professional men’s county cricket season to begin on 1 August.

In yesterday’s release the ECB stated that the formats to be played this summer are still to be confirmed and the club are hoping for clarity on this around the 7 July. Once this is clear and has been agreed, we will update all through the club’s website, social media channels and Durham Digest.

Once a decision has been confirmed as to what formats will be played through August and September, a full fixture list will be made available on the Durham Cricket website.

We are hoping once the format and fixture list is confirmed, we will be able to provide members with an update on how they can watch the games.

Tim Bostock, Chief Executive of Durham Cricket said: “As you can imagine, myself and all staff at the club are delighted by yesterday’s news that cricket will soon be returning to Emirates Riverside.

“There is still a lot to be finalised in regard to the scheduling for the remainder of the summer, but I can assure you all once this is ratified, we will provide you with a further update.

“James, Marcus and all of the playing squad are now excited at what the summer has to offer, and I know the players will make the most of what we have left this season, to play competitive cricket.

“From yesterday’s announcement, we are now set to begin on 1 August, and we will continue to be led by advice as to whether or not members will be allowed into the ground.

“If in the initial stages of the return to play, spectators aren’t able to watch live cricket at Emirates Riverside, I can promise you there will be opportunities for all to watch Durham through our online live match coverage.”
