The School Sport Australia 15 & Under Boys National Championship will begin on the Sunshine Coast on Sunday.

 

Ten teams will compete for the title, with every state and territory represented – and both Victoria and New South Wales fielding two teams.

 

The tournament runs from February 10 to 18, with the first four rounds of matches on the Sunshine Coast, followed by the final round in Brisbane.

 

NSW Green, Western Australia, NSW Magenta, Tasmania and the ACT will feature in Pool A.

 

Queensland, Victoria Country, Victoria Metro, South Australia and Northern Territory will compete in Pool B.

 

Each team will play four 50-over matches, ahead of semi-finals and a final.

 

The final will be live-streamed on www.nationalchamps.com.au, with the winner of the tournament taking home the Ricky Ponting Cup.

 

In recent years, the tournament has been dominated by New South Wales – with NSW Green defeating NSW Metro in last year’s final

 

At the conclusion of the tournament, an Australia under-16s squad will be announced.

The School Sport Australia 15 & Under Boys National Championship is run by School Sport Australia in conjunction with Cricket Australia.
