CRICKET: The highly anticipated start to the senior cricket season was postponed today after wet weather forced games today and tomorrow to be called off.

Warwick Cricket Association president Michael Bourke said it was disappointing for players and officials.

"The rain occurred before covers were able to be put on the pitches,” Bourke said.

"Unfortunately they couldn't dry in time.

"Luckily the juniors who play on the smaller ovals were able to play their second round of trial games.

"We're still looking for an increase in numbers for the juniors, however we've changed the format and it has worked quite well.

"Senior cricketers will be more than keen to get out there next week, as we put the start of the competition back a week due to the NRL grand final.”

A decision on yet to be made as to whether the games will be played at a later date, with round two games planned for next week.
