CRICKET Albury-Wodonga will avoid cross-border travel for at least the opening three rounds of the provincial season.
Victorian sides Wodonga, Wodonga Raiders, Belvoir and Tallangatta will play each other while Lavington, East Albury, North Albury, St Patrick's, New City, Albury and Corowa have been grouped for matches in NSW.
The competition is scheduled to start on October 10.
A Twenty20 round could be played earlier depending on whether the AFL grand final is played outside Victoria.
"We have clubs lined up in bubbles," Erdeljac said.
"Unless something changes in the next six weeks, Victorian clubs will play Victorian clubs and NSW clubs will play NSW clubs.
"Depending on what happens and we need to extend further with the restrictions, rounds 12, 13 and 14 might become rounds four, five and six to avoid travelling across the river.
"It's complicated but we see this as the best way forward."
With the closure of the Victorian border, cricketers will only be allowed to play for a side in the state where they are living.
The club with the biggest challenges is Howlong.
With it being the only NSW-based club in the district competition, it may be faced with the prospect of spending 12 months in CAW Hume.
Other options are aligning with a NSW-based provincial club or going it alone in lower grades.
"We will be working with Howlong to accommodate them the best way we can," Erdeljac said.
"It's a bit of an issue at the moment but that will be decided over the next 10 or 12 weeks.
"I'm sure we will work something out."
CAW District and CAW Hume will start on October 10 or 17.
Strict protocols will be put in place for the season with clubs being instructed to follow council coronavirus plans for each ground.
"Information will be on the website where clubs will follow the ground rules," he said.
"That will happen everywhere.
"There will be plans for different grounds as some have gates and others don't."
In other developments from Wednesday night's annual general meeting, Jock Campbell was elevated to patron with Yerong Creek's Steve Bennett replacing him on the board.
"Jock has given outstanding service to cricket over the years," Erdeljac said.
"He been involved for 40 or 50 years and patron is a deserving honour.
"Steve lives at Yerong Creek and will be invaluable with forging stronger ties with our Hume component of the CAW."
Erdeljac said all clubs were on the same page during the annual general meeting in a bid to find the "best fit" for the 2020-21 season.
"It's very challenging because we could put everything together and it could be wrong a day later," he said.
"It's evolving all the time.
"All we can do is put options on the table."
Last season's provincial grand final was abandoned.
