The Men’s High Performance Review (“HPR”) has now issued its final report, which contains 17 recommendations.
Two of these recommendations concern the structure and scheduling of the domestic competitions from 2024 and are therefore a decision for the First-Class Counties.
Surrey County Cricket Club will consult with our members and consider the recommendations and their input carefully at our Board and General Committee.
The HPR’s focus was on improving the performance of the England men’s teams across all formats, and therefore looked at the issues through that lens.
Whilst we will always seek to support the game as a whole, our focus has to be on both Surrey players and members, and on acting in the best interests of the club.
The HPR focuses on the volume of domestic cricket played, and we need to consider the impact of this on our players, but we will also seek to ensure that the integrity of our domestic competitions is not damaged, and that the scheduling works for members and players.
