THE Yarra Valley Cricket Association opens its senior season this Saturday with a few minor changes to the length of matches.
The YVCA senior competition will see some minor changes with more one-day games in the top grades, fitting in with the structure of eight teams per grade allowing for seven two-day and seven one-day games.
DJ Strachan Shield premier Coldstream travels to Healesville for its opening game of 2012-13, with last season's runners-up Seville going to meet Woori Yallock at Woori Yallock.
Wandin CC, one of the oldest clubs in the association, is also in a recovery mode.
Having slumped to only one side last season, they have built back to two teams, with a first XI playing in the C grade.
Its first match will be an away game, but played at the Wandin ground against last season's premiers in this grade, Seville.
