The 2011/12 Broken Hill cricket season opens today promising plenty of highlights, competitive matches and thrilling finishes.

The competition will consist of one-day (45 overs) and 20/20 games and with all clubs being active in the recruiting department we are expecting to see some exciting new talent.

Administrators and curators have also been busy putting a lot of time and effort into improving the structure of the competition and facilities.

An interesting rule change will be the introduction of a free hit if a bowler over-steps with a front foot no-ball. Any indiscretion in this area will provide the batsman with a free swing at the next ball - knowing they cannot get out.
