Cricket Wales Statement Wednesday 23rd September


Cricket Wales notes the First Minister of Wales’ announcement of Tuesday 22nd September, regarding the extra steps to be introduced in our country to limit the spread of Coronavirus. 

Details of Mr Drakeford’s statement can be found here


As it stands, having taken advice from the Welsh Sports Association (WSA) today, we are currently satisfied that, in Wales, we are fortunate that none of the announced measures should have a significant, direct impact on our ability or permission to undertake organised sport or physical activity - as long as any such activity adheres to the current laws and regulations, and is undertaken in compliance with National Governing Body-issued guidelines.  

We would, however, remind participants of the local lockdowns that remain in force in Caerphilly, RCT, Bridgend, Blaenau Gwent, Merthyr Tydfil & Newport Borough Council Areas, which must be observed.  

We would also request that consideration should be given to travel that participants undertake in order to participate in cricket, and to ensure that this is reasonable and proportionate.  

Cricket Wales will continue to monitor this situation and liaise with colleagues at WSA, Sport Wales and the England & Wales Cricket Board. 

Please follow our primary social media channels, @CricketWales on Twitter &, and consult our website for the latest available information, or contact your Area teams with specific queries, if you have concerns.
