At a meeting of the Management Board held on Monday 9th December 2019, members approved a recommendation from the Cricket & Registration Committee to introduce white balls, coloured clothing and black sight screens into the 50 over per side League matches in 2020. The recommendation came after 17 clubs (with 3 against) indicated that they were in favour of such a proposal at a meeting of Club Captains held on Monday 21st October 2019. A subsequent meeting of Club Chairs, seven days later, expressed reservations about the proposal and they were asked to meet with their players and return to a meeting to be held immediately after the A.G.M. with a definitive view on the matter. At that meeting, 15 clubs supported the immediate introduction of white balls, coloured clothing and black sight screens into the 50 over per side League matches, four clubs were against the proposal, four clubs were undecided and one club was not in attendance.
