Each group will play two T20 matches and two 40 over matches in Malvern East during the week.
"This carnival aligns to the newly-created Cricket Australia ‘Cricket Regions’ with Cricket Southern Bayside and Cricket Tasmania piloting a new competition format," says Drew Ginn, GM of Cricket Tasmania's High Performance.
"The introduction of Junior Formats at the State U13 level and a combination of turf and synthetic wickets will provide boys and girls with a great opportunity to test and develop their skills."
