2017/18 First Round Domestic Cricket Contracts Offered

10 Jul 2017



First-round domestic contracts offered

 New Zealand’s six Major Associations have announced the list of players offered first-round domestic contracts for the coming season.

The contracting process for domestic players involves two rounds, with each team contracting a total of 15 players overall. The Major Associations can offer between nine and 14 contracts at their discretion in the first round, ahead of completing the process with second round contracts – to be offered on July 26 and finalised by July 31.

The two-stage contracting process ensures increased competition for the final contracts offered at Major Association level, and helps ensure the best players are contracted throughout the country.
