The 2011-12 national cricket season will start in October to end in May 2012. Around 10 teams are expected to take part in the championship, which will begin with test matches.
Games will be played at the Mauritius Gymkhana Club, Vacoas while waiting for the opening of the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam (SSR) National Cricket Grounds, Belle Vue Harel, which is scheduled to be ready by the end of this year.
“We are waiting for teams to register before starting the new season. Cricket grounds will be closed during winters and the game will be played only during summertime. However, cricket is expected to be played year-round when the Belle Vue stadium opens,” said Federation of Cricket Clubs president Ali Parkar.
The Belle Vue stadium playing grounds are nearly complete and the cricket league is only waiting for the turf to be installed on the pitch. The new stadium, which has been built at a cost of Rs 30 million, will host competitions and will offer training facilities for the youth.
