The cricket competition will be conducted under the laws of cricket as presently adopted for
20/20 cricket, except where modified by the following:
The competition shall be played on a round robin basis. Teams will consist of eight players:
> each player may bat in an innings
> a minimum of five players may bowl a maximum of four overs in an innings
> a batsman must retire after scoring 25 runs but may resume after all other available batsmen have been dismissed.
Each match shall consist of one innings per team, consisting of a maximum of twenty (20) six (6) ball overs. Each side will have ninety minutes, to bowl their allotted 20 overs. Limit to a maximum nine ball over to cater for wides. There will be no innings break between each innings. Drinks may be taken at the end of the 10th over of each innings, but shall not exceed five minutes.
If the commencement of play is delayed, or play is interrupted, and if it is likely that the close of play will be after 3.30pm, the overs per team shall be reduced by one over, per five minutes lost. In the case of the team batting second, the run target will be recalculated. The target score shall be determined as the average run rate of the team batting first multiplied by the number of overs remaining to be faced by the second team. A minimum of fifteen overs must be faced by both sides to constitute a match (providing the batting team is not dismissed earlier, or the team batting second passes the score of the team batting first). If a game is washed out, points are allocated as per a draw. At the end of the days play – or as directed by the umpires in the case of a rain delay, both teams will assist in removing and covering the wickets.
The competition shall be played on a round robin basis with points being awarded as follows:
➢ win—3 points > draw—1 point > loss—0 points
➢ runs—0.01 points > wickets—0.2 points
The two teams with the highest number of points at the end of the round robin shall contest the final. In the event of two or more teams finishing with the same number of points, their positions will be determined by a ladder drawn up by the cricket coordinator during the preliminary matches. The ladder will take into account each team’s points, and work out a percentage for each team based on runs scored and wickets taken - both for and against.
Gold and silver medals will be presented after the final for the teams that made the final.
