Except as varied hereunder the Laws of Cricket (2000 Code) shall apply.
1. Duration of Matches
The matches will consist of one innings per side and each innings will be limited to 50 six-ball overs. A minimum of 20 overs per team shall constitute a match.
2. Hours of Play and Intervals
2.1 Start and Cessation Times: 11:00 and 6:30 (19:30)
There will be two sessions of 3 1/2 hours each separated by a 30 minute break.
2.2 Interval Between Innings: The innings of the team batting second shall not commence before the scheduled time for commencement of the second session unless the team batting first has completed its innings at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled interval, in which case a ten minute break will occur and the team batting second will commence its innings and the interval will occur as scheduled. Where play is delayed or interrupted the Umpires will reduce the length of the interval as follows:-
Time Lost Interval
Up to 60 Minutes 20 Minutes
Between 60 and 120 Minutes 15 Minutes
More than 120 Minutes 10 Minutes
2.3 Intervals for Drinks:
Two drink breaks of 5 minutes maximum per session shall be permitted, each 1 hour 10 minutes apart. The provisions of Law (15.9) shall be strictly observed except that under conditions of extreme heat the Umpires may permit extra intervals for drinks. An individual player may be given a drink either on the boundary edge or at the fall of a wicket, on the field, provided that no playing time is wasted. No other drinks shall be taken onto the field without the permission of the Umpires. Any player taking drinks onto the field shall be dressed in proper cricket attire.
3. Length of Innings - Uninterrupted Matches
(a) Each team shall bat for 50 (six ball) overs unless all out earlier.
(b) A team shall not be permitted to declare its innings closed.
(c) If the team fielding first fails to bowl the required number of overs by the scheduled time for cessation of the first session (3 ? hrs after start time) play shall continue until the required number of overs has been bowled.
Unless otherwise determined by the referee/umpires, the innings of the team batting second shall be limited to the same number of overs bowled by such team, at the scheduled time for cessation of the first session. The over in progress at the scheduled cessation time shall count as a completed over.
The interval shall not be extended and the second session shall commence at the scheduled time.
The referee/umpires may increase the number of overs to be bowled by the team bowling second if, after consultation with the umpires he/they are of the opinion that events beyond the control of the bowling team prevented that team from bowling the required number of overs by the scheduled time for the cessation of the innings of the team batting first.
(d) If the team batting first is all out and the last wicket falls at or after the scheduled time for the interval, the innings of the team batting second shall be limited to the same number of overs bowled to the team batting first at the scheduled time for interval (the over in which the last wicket falls to count as a complete over).
(e) If the team batting first is dismissed in less than 50 overs, the team batting second shall be entitled to bat for 50 overs except as provided in (c) above.
(f) If the team fielding second fails to bowl 50 overs or the number of overs as provided in 3(b), (c) or (d) by the scheduled cessation time, the hours of play shall be extended until the required number of overs has been bowled or a result achieved.
4. Delayed Or Interrupted Matches
(a) The object shall always be to rearrange the number of overs so that both teams have the opportunity of batting for the same number of overs. A team shall not be permitted to declare its innings closed.
A minimum 20 overs have to be bowled to the side batting second to constitute a match subject to the provision s of Clause 3(b).
The calculation of the number of overs to be bowled shall be based on an average rate of 14.28 overs per hour in the total time available for play. If a reduction of the number of overs is required, any recalculation must not cause the match to be rescheduled to finish earlier than the original cessation time. This time may be extended to allow for one extra over for both teams to be added if required.
(b) If the team fielding second fails to bowl the required number of overs by the scheduled cessation time, the hours of play shall be extended until the overs have been bowled or a result achieved.
(c) The team batting second shall not bat for a greater number of overs than the first team unless the latter has been all out in less than the agreed number of overs.
(d) Fractions are to be ignored in all calculations with respect to the number of overs to be bowled.
II Delay or Interruption to the Innings of the Team Batting First
(a) If the number of overs of the team batting first is reduced, a fixed time will be specified for the completion of the first session, as calculated by applying the provisions of Clauses 2.2 and 4.1(a).
(b) If the team fielding first fails to bowl the required number of overs by the scheduled time for cessation of the first session, play shall continue until the required number of overs has been bowled, and 3 (b) shall apply.
(c) If the team batting first is all out and the last wicket falls at or after the scheduled time for interval, 3 (c) shall apply.
III Delay or Interruption to the Innings of the Team Batting Second.
If there is a suspension in play during the second innings, the overs shall be reduced at a rate of 14.28 overs per hour for time lost, except that, when the innings of the team batting first has been completed prior to the scheduled or rescheduled time for the interval between innings, the reduction of overs will not commence until an amount of time equivalent to that by which the second innings started early has elapsed.
5. Restrictions on the Placement of Fieldsmen
5.1 Two semi circles shall be drawn on the field of play. The semi circles have as their centre the middle stump at either end of the pitch. The radius of each of the semi circle is 30 yards (27.5m). The ends of each semi circle are joined to the other by straight line drawn on the field on the same side of the pitch. The field restriction area should be marked by continuous painted white lines or ?dots? at five yard (4.5m) intervals, each ?dot? to be covered by a white plastic or rubber (but not metal) disc measuring seven inches (18cm) in diameter.
5.2 At the instant of delivery, there may not be more than five fieldsmen on the leg side.
5.3 For the first 15 overs only two fieldsmen are permitted to be outside the field
restriction marking at the instant of delivery.
5.4 For the remaining overs only five fieldsmen are permitted to be outside the field restriction marking at the instant of delivery.
5.5 Two inner circles shall be drawn on the field of play. The circles have as their
centres the centre point of the popping crease at either end of the pitch. The
radious of each of the circles is 15 yards (13.72 metres). The field restriction
area should be marked in ?dots. The segment of the circles reserved for the slip
position shall not be demarcated. (Refer to diagram). In the first 15 overs there
must be a minimum of two stationary fieldsman within the 15 yard restriction of
the striker at the instant of delivery. The two stationary fieldsman may be
permitted to stand deeper that 15 yards (in the undemarcated area) provided only
that they are standing in slip, leg slip and gully positions.
5.3 In circumstances where the number of overs for the team batting first is reduced,
the number of overs in regard to the restrictions in 5.3 and 5.5 above shall be
reduced proportionally in a ratio of 12:50 (30%) in accordance with the table
below. Fractions are to be ignored in all calculations re the number of overs.
5.4 Where the number of overs for the team batting second is reduced (including
under the provisions of clause 3(b) and/or (c) above), the restrictions is 5.3
and 5.5 above will apply for the same proportion of the second innings as applied
in the first innings (fractions to be ignored).
5.5 In the event of an infringement, the square leg umpire shall call and signal ?No
6. Number of Overs per Bowler
No bowler shall bowl more than 10 (six ball) overs in an innings. In a delayed or interrupted match where the overs are reduced for both teams or for the team bowling second, no bowler may bowl more than one-fifth of the total overs allowed. This restriction shall not apply to the team fielding second where the provisions of Clause 3(b) have been applied.
Where the total overs is not divisible by 5, one additional over shall be allowed to the maximum number per bowler necessary to make up the balance.
In the event of a bowler breaking down and being unable to complete an over, the remaining balls will be bowled by another bowler. Such part of an over will count as a full over only in so far as each bowler?s limit is concerned.
7 No Ball
7.1 A bowler shall be allowed to bowl one short pitched delivery per over (not being a wide).
A fast short pitched delivery is defined as a ball that passes or would have passed above the shoulder height of the striker standing upright at the crease, but not clearly above the batsman?s head. (refer Test Match clause 33)
In the event of the bowler bowling more that one fast short pitched delivery in an over, the umpire shall call and signal no ball. The penalty shall be one run for the no ball, plus any runs scored from the delivery.
The above regulation is not a substitute for Law 42.6 which umpires may apply at any time.
Note ? the provisions of one allowable fast short pitched delivery per over shall be superseded by the provisions of Clause 8 ? wide bowling.
7.2 Law 24.1 will apply except that the bowler may not deliver the ball underarm. If
a bowler bowls a ball underarm the umpire shall call and signal no ball, and the
ball is to be re-bowled overarm.
In addition, the umpire at the bowler?s end shall call and signal no ball if a ball which the umpire considers to have been delivered:
(i) bounces more than twice or
(ii) rolls along the ground or
(iii) comes to rest
before it reaches the striker or, if not otherwise played by the striker, before it reaches the popping crease. If the ball comes to rest in such circumstance, the umpire will call No Ball and Law 25.3 shall apply.
7.3 LAW 24.12 - The following shall apply:
A penalty of one run shall be scored for a no ball, plus any runs scored from the delivery. The above penalty shall also apply to (fast short pitched balls) and (fast high, full pitched balls).
8. Wide Bowling - Judging a Wide
Umpires are instructed to apply a very strict and consistent interpretation with regard to this Law in order to prevent negative bowling wide of the wicket.
Any offside or legside delivery which in the opinion of the Umpire does not give the batsman a reasonable opportunity to score shall be called a wide. As a guide, on the leg side a ball landing clearly outside the leg stump going further away shall be called wide.
A penalty of one run for a wide shall be scored. This penalty shall stand in addition to any other runs which are scored or awarded. All runs which are run or result from a wide ball which is not a no ball shall be scored wide balls.
9. The Ball
Each fielding team shall have one new ball for its innings.
The umpires shall retain possession of the match ball(s) throughout the duration of the match when play is not actually taking place. During play umpires shall periodically and irregularly inspect the condition of the ball and shall retain possession of it at the fall of a wicket, a drinks interval, or any other disruption in play.
In the event of a ball during play being lost, wet and soggy or in the opinion of the umpires being unfit for play through normal use, the umpires shall allow it to be replaced by one that in their opinion has had a similar amount of wear.
If the ball is to be replaced, the umpire shall inform the batsmen. Either bowler or batsman may raise the matter with the umpires and the umpires? decision as to a replacement or otherwise will be final.
10. The Result
A result can be achieved only if both teams have had the opportunity of batting for at least 20 overs, subject to the provisions of Clauses 3 (b) and 4.2.2 (b) unless one team has been all out in less that 20 overs or unless the team batting second scores enough runs to win in less that 20 overs.
In matches in which both teams have had the opportunity of batting for the agreed number of overs, subject to the provisions of Clauses 4.1 (b) and 4.2.2 (b) the team scoring the higher number of runs shall be the winner, if the scores are equal, the result shall be a tie and no account shall be taken of the number of wickets which have fallen.
All matches in which both teams have not had an opportunity of batting for at least 20 overs, shall be declared no result.
For teams that don?t turn up the opposition will be awarded maximum points (2). Teams should turn up by a least 15 minutes after the scheduled start of play (umpires must verify in writing by 48 hrs to BCB). This may be waived under exceptional circumstance if umpires/players at the grounds have been advised of the delay before the scheduled start.
If the game is cancelled due to rain both teams will be awarded (1) point each.
In the event of the pitch not been prepared the umpire must verify in writing and the visiting team may, at the discretion of the BCB, be awarded maximum points (2).
In the event of a pitch being considered too dangerous for play to continue in the estimation of the match umpires, they shall stop play and immediately advise the captains.
If possible an alternative pitch (same venue) may be used to complete match with approval of both captains.
If both captains agree not to resume that match will then than be abandoned. Both teams will be awarded (1) point.
Games that do not take place at the scheduled time and place will not be replayed. The Board, however, under exceptional circumstances has the right to order games to be replayed. Such circumstances will include without limitation acts of God or any incident that prevents access to the ground.
11. Points and League Table
Rained out 1
Bonus Points None
In the event of the teams finishing on equal points the position in the League will be decided by the most wins or when teams have both equal wins and equal points, the team which was the winner of the match played between them will be placed in the higher position or, if still equal, the higher net run rate.
A team?s net run rate is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over scored by that team during all League matches, the average runs per over scored against that team throughout the competition.
In the event of a team being all out in less that its full quota of overs, the calculation of its net run rate shall be based on the full quota of overs to which it would have been entitled and not on the number of overs in which the team was dismissed.
Delayed or Interrupted Matches ? calculation of the Target Score
If, due to suspension of play after the start of the match, the number of overs in the innings of either team has to be revised to a lesser number that originally allotted (minimum 20 overs unless the provisions of 3 (b) or 4.2.2 (b) apply), then a revised target score (to win) should be set for the number of overs which the team batting second will have the opportunity of facing. This revised target is to be calculated using average run rate.
Law 2.5 Fielder absent or leaving the field
Law 2.5 shall apply as modified:
If a fielder fails to take the field with his side at the start of the match or at any later time, or leaves the field during a session of play, the umpire shall be informed of the reason for his absence, and he shall not thereafter come on to the field during a session of play without the consent of the umpire. (see Law 2.6). The umpire shall give such consent as soon as practicable. If the player is absent from the field for longer than 8 minutes:
(i) The player shall not be permitted to bowl in that innings after his return
until he has been on the field for at least that length of playing time for which he was absent.
(ii) The player shall not be permitted to bat unless or until, in the aggregate, he
has returned to the field and/or his sides inning has been in progress for least that length of playing time for which he has been absent or, if earlier, when his side has lost five wickets.
The restriction in (i) and (ii) above shall not apply if the player has suffered an external blow (as opposed to an internal injury such as a pulled muscle) whilst participating earlier in the match and consequently been forced to leave the field. Nor shall it apply if the player has been absent for very exceptional and wholly acceptable reasons (other than injury or illness).
In the event of a fieldsman already being off the field at the commencement of an interruption in play through ground, weather or light conditions, he shall be allowed to count any such stoppage time as playing time, provided that he personally informs the umpires when he is fit enough to take the field had play been in progress.
