According to the WPCA's second draft of fixtures, which will undergo minor changes before eventual confirmation, Cape Town Cricket Club's opening match of the 2018/19 premier league will be against Bellville Cricket Club on November 3.

A home fixture against Brackenfell Cricket Club will follow on November 4.

Late July saw the WPCA confirm premier league and first division A cricket has changed from two- to one-day competition for the 2018/19 season.

A proposal, largely based on feedback solicited from premier league and first division clubs and the recommendations of a task team, suggested the format swap.

The decision will stand for the 2018/19 season and, later, be re-evaluated for a potential return to two-day cricket in 2019/20.
