This year the festival runs for seven days and includes three one-day matches and one two-day match, along with a T20 competition. The T20 matches were played on Tuesday, with BGS winning one of its two matches. It was the seventh year of the 20-over format being included in the competition.

The touring players from Sydney and Melbourne have been billeted by BGS. Along with these generous families, special thanks must go to the grounds-staff, led by Don Myles, for providing first class playing facilities, along with the umpires for their work in hot conditions.
