In what has been the most disrupted cricket season perhaps since the World Wars, the Kangaroo Island Cricket Association has made the difficult decision to abandon the championship.

Senior competition was officially called off due to COVID-19 after the semi-final saw Hog Bay secure a spot against MacGillivray.

Kangaroo Island Cricket Association president Rodney Lade said their Constitution specified that a grand final must be played in order for a championship to be given out.

"In the constitution it says if the semi finals get washed out or whatever the team finishing top goes to the next level, but it says grand finals have to be played out," Lade said.

While he admitted that clubs were disappointed by not being able to play, he said the Constitution and the committee agreed that grand finals needed to be won and would not be awarded by default.

"This is a bit of a different circumstance really - because we had the fires on top of it we lost a round," Lade said.

"There was a debate then around whether we would play for points, and we had a couple of games and everyone was happy to go on as per normal.

"In a way it's sort of justice that no one wins because we had such an interrupted season.

Other competitions around South Australia have grappled with the shortened season and, in some cases, decided to award premierships.

The Great Southern Cricket Association (GSCA) called off its season two weeks early and later awarded the 2019-20 premierships to the teams which won the qualifying finals.

Lade said that the premiership shield would be amended to show that the season was abandoned by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as the fires.

"Apart from the world wars I don't think there has ever been any recess," Lade said.

"I think that needs to be put in history so it doesn't get forgotten."
