The tournament starts on Monday with Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, New South Wales, the ACT and East-Asia Pacific keen to deny Western Australia a second-straight title.

“We’re ready to go,’’ Bendigo District Cricket Association president Wayne Walsh said on Tuesday.

“The sight screens arrive tomorrow and the grounds are in great condition, so we’re very happy with how everything is coming together.

“Hopefully, the Bendigo community will support the event and get to the grounds to watch some fantastic cricket.”

The City of Greater Bendigo has put extra work into the six grounds that will be used for the tournament.

“We’ll have a trying week this week with high temperatures forecast, but we’ll be putting as much water as we can onto the grounds,” COGB sports fields team leader Roger Barbetti said.

“The staff will do some extra work on Sunday to make sure the grounds are in great shape for the start of the carnival on Monday.”

The carnival begins with two-day games, starting on Monday. In round one, WA tackles SA at the QEO, Victoria plays NSW at Huntly and Queensland takes on East-Asia Pacific at Canterbury Park.
