    Less than less than 2 weeks (Monday 5 October).

    There is a 7th team added to the competition this year, The Cricket Australia XI.

    "The introduction of a new team, called the CA XI, is a two-year trial, with the squad comprised of players from around the country who narrowly missed out on selection by their respective states."

    With each state only naming 14 in their squad to start with (seems small to be, maybe 16 might be a better number), the CA XI should be a pretty decent side

    I guess that's the point. With a 16 man squad the CA XI would probably be irredeemably bad (as it is, you'd imagine they'd struggle to win a game).

    Why didn't they start this in the school holidays? Especially considering a lot of the games are at local grounds.

    It's good in theory but it'll be interesting to see if it works. They used to do it England, there was a side called the Unicorns XI and who were exactly what the CA XI is. They were scrapped after only a handful of wins over a number of seasons and several very one sided matches.

    I wouldn't be surprised if CA XI surprise a few. They're going to end up with a good squad.
