Cricket authorities are working on contingency plans after Thursday's NSW government announcements regarding COVID restrictions.
The roadmap out of lockdown revealed community sport will not resume until the state hits 80 per cent double-vaccinated, likely in early November.
The uncertainty has made it more difficult for administrators to plan a start to the season.
Cricket Illawarra had intended on playing the full Twenty20 competition before transitioning to the one-day rounds.
That remains an option, however a final plan will not be determined until it becomes clearer when NSW will reach its vaccination targets. There is a possibility the Twenty20 tournament will be cancelled.
South Coast Cricket is ready to commence as soon as rules allow, however officials are eager for more direction regarding COVID-safe measures and whether vaccination will be required for all players.
