Cricket Australia announced the playing schedule for the 2011 Emerging Players Tournament that will see a format change from the traditional competition structure.
The 2011 event in August will move away from the shorter formats, with a round robin of three-day matches, including matches for the first time in Townsville.
The format changes have the tick of approval from the competing nations with India, South Africa and New Zealand all back for another crack at the title.
