Trialling white balls in premier league looks set to be the major change heading into Darrell Whyte's 10th year as TCL president.
Whyte, who believes excessive player payments is the biggest issue facing the TCL heading into the new decade, said the white ball will likely be rolled out across all divisions next season if successful.
TCL clubs have been given until September 1 to provide feedback on the change, which would bring the league into line with other 40-over competitions around the country.
This year's TCL competition will again see clubs share the spoils of grand final hosting rights, following a change of policy last year.

Whyte said the change had been made for fairness' sake.
"Money gets split between clubs who help out on the day," Whyte said.
"Instead of two or three clubs making $3000 or $4000 out of the finals, we had 12 or 13 clubs who helped out so it's split evenly among all those clubs because you've got some clubs in the league that'll never see a final because their grounds aren't up to scratch.
"We had a bit of resistance about that but hopefully they see the committee's point of view and we hope to do the same again this year.
"Some clubs have to realise that we've got 15 clubs to look after, not one or two - there's no club bigger than the TCL."
Hadspen ended Longford's three-year stranglehold on the TCL premier league last season, taking out the final in a six-wicket boilover.
The win was set up by a blistering 47-ball century from Sri Lankan under-21 representative Thanuka Dabare, who finished his maiden season as player of the year following 1219 runs and 24 wickets.
Whyte, who listed the premier league's introduction as one of his proudest achievements during 10 years of service, admitted the league was still looking at ways to facilitate a fair and even competition.
"The biggest headache at the moment is payment of players," he said.
"The rumoured payment of some players is going to end up like football is at the moment.
"You've got players playing in lower league or lower competitions because a club is willing to play them X amount of dollars.
"How we reign that in is a good question.

"Clubs have got to realise that it's alright to pay a player X amount this year, but is their club going to be sustainable down the track in two or three years' time?
"How much is it going to cost them for a premiership? We're only a concrete competition but clubs are chucking thousands at players.
"I suppose that's half of the reason that Cressy want to try their luck in the NTCA because they can't compete with some of these bigger clubs."
Re-elected at the league's annual general meeting late last month, Whyte was joined by treasurer Charmaine Whyman among the committee's returnees with John Wegman and Jason Savage appointed vice-presidents.
