The challenge of T20 cricket has sharpened clubs' focus ahead of an explosive start to the season.
Teams will launch their campaigns with double-headers in the shorter format before reverting to 50-over matches.
"The variety in the season is great," East Albury captain Brett Davies said.
"From having no T20s last year and playing 50-over cricket, the strategy in T20 is going to be completely different.
"Whether it be the batting order, field settings or bowling restrictions, it's a new ball game altogether.

"We've got to hit reset and now we know what the fixture's going to look like, we can start being more deliberate in our T20 planning.
"The T20 format naturally brings everyone closer together.
"It's going to be exciting and playing everyone once in a T20 and one-day format is the fairest way to plan the year.
"That way, when it comes to the end of the year, the best team will win the premiership."
