WARRNAMBOOL and District Cricket Association will gather feedback from clubs before deciding if it postpones its season due to rising COVID-19 infections around the state.
It comes as key players missed the association's Twenty20 semi-finals on Saturday due to isolation requirements as either confirmed cases or close contacts.
A three-option survey has been put to clubs. They've been asked if it's their preference to continue playing unaffected, to postpone for one week in the hope outbreaks settle in the south-west or to cancel the season altogether.

He said the executive would meet virtually on Tuesday night to reach a verdict. "We'll see what the club say about it and if there are any particular issues, we'll discuss that with a particular club," McLeod said.

The association's Twenty20 final, meanwhile, will be played on a date to be confirmed. It was originally scheduled for Sunday but postponed.
