News from Christchurch Metro Cricket:
We have had significant rain since last Friday night on top of our wettest winter since 1975.
This has meant areas of outfield flooding and very wet pitch blocks which has restricted pitch preparation for this Saturday.
Metro has inspected all the cricket grounds twice since Wednesday and have made the following decision.
All Metro Adult and Youth cricket is cancelled on Saturday 14 October except for the following grades; please note the ground changes:
STA v LP moves to Warren 1a
BWU v ES moves to Warren 2a
Syd v Mar Har moves to Warren 3a
OBC v Ricc moves to Warren 4a
OBC v STA moves to Elmwood 3a
Syd v LP moves to Hag 3a

Rubber-soled shoes must be worn when batting or bowling on the artificial pitches.
Each team must supply a set(that is, one unit) of spring-loaded stumps
No covers are required at Burnside Oval but hessian should be used to protect from any dew.
