Hours of Play Friday evenings, 5:30pm to 8:00pm. The first innings must finish by 6:45 regardless of

whether 20 overs have been bowled. The team batting second shall have the same number

of overs available to them as the first team.

Late Starts If the minimum 6 players are not in place within 30 minutes of the scheduled start time, the

game is declared lost by default by that team.

Innings Length Games are restricted to 20 overs per team, 6 balls per over.

For games reduced by weather or other factors, divide playing time in half and calculate

overs based on a rate of 20 overs per hour.

If a team batting first is bowled out within the 20 overs, the team batting second shall have

the full 20 overs to reach the score.

If a team batting second overtakes the opponents score before the allocated number of

overs, play may continue to allow as many players as possible the opportunity to bat and

bowl (coaches to use discretion regarding time of game).

Bowling Restriction Maximum number of overs per bowler to be 4.

For games reduced by late starts, weather, or other factors, the maximum number of overs a

bowler may bowl shall be calculated by:

[Total Number of Overs/5 then round to nearest whole number]

(i.e. 13 over match = 13/5 = 2.6 = 3 overs per bowler).

Bowlers Run-up Maximum length of run-up to be restricted to 15 yards.
