Next years Country Week Cricket in Melbourne has been cancelled due to the impacts of the pandemic.

The Victorian Country Cricket League said it looked at hosting the competition outside of Melbourne but felt it would only burden the selected area which would already be dealing with pandemic related challenges.
 
The BCA will now have to wait another year before trying to win the title, Bendigo defeated Ballarat to take the crown back in February.
 
The last time Country Week was called off was in 1982/83 due to drought conditions.
