          On behalf of the SCJC committee, the very best of luck to all SCCA affiliated
clubs for a successful and enjoyable season which will be full of many challenges both on
and off field, lots of high achievements and milestones and hopefully only tiny

         Last season changes were made to our competition age structure and proved to be
highly successful - substantial growth has once again been achieved. This season brings
further changes with the “southern” & “northern” division juniors playing within the one
competition structure – this has been done to give all juniors under the SCCA banner the
opportunity to play in an expanded competition, using the same rules and providing the
same exposure to selection processes; it will be an exciting time for all with many positives
to be drawn.

         The highly successful “U0 Friday Night under Lights” introduced last season in
the “northern” division will be conducted this season on a greater scale. The ‘carnival
atmosphere’ in generally cooler conditions particularly suits this non-competitive age

          I encourage all clubs to get behind the Zone Cricket Competition introduced last
season – the teething problems have been removed and you can look forward to some great
cricket at a level above Club cricket.

         Sunshine Coast will once again nominate teams in the QJC Age Championships
from U to U where the coveted State Title Shields will be fiercely contested. Whilst
the Primary School, U & Open Schoolboys titles do not come directly within the
structure of SCJC, the majority of players do come from within our ranks – we wish all
participants representing the Sunshine Coast at the various carnivals over the coming
summer every success – you always do us proud.

        To the hundreds and hundreds of volunteers right across our region, you simply
cannot be done without - fantastic effort! Please continue to support our juniors in a spirit
of cooperation and friendship. The value of your input is immeasurable.

         The support from our sponsors is highly valued and always greatly appreciated –
please acknowledge and thank:

Acceptance of the umpire’s decision is central to
Queensland Cricket Youth Policy.

Parents must remember that they are role models for their
children. Their reactions to the decisions of umpires are a model
for how their children should react themselves.

If you teach your child to accept an umpire’s decision with
humility, even when you disagree with it, you have created an
opportunity for your child to succeed at a higher level and to face
the challenge of disappointment with pride, determination and a
positive view to the future.

Understandibly all parents want the best for their children.

But, parents who resort to unqualified, petty comparisons of
other players and criticism of selectors, following their child’s
non selection in representative teams, not only place excessive
pressure on their child, but create a major source of embarrassment
for the child.

Encouraging young people to look elsewhere to lay blame
at a time of personal disappointment can often fester into an
unrealistic view of the world and can
severely retard a promising career.

•	     Play for fun and not just to please parents and coaches.
•	     Play by the rules: they are for the good of all.
•	     Never argue with an official. If you disagree have your captain or coach
       approach the official during a break or after the game.
•	     Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials or other players, deliberately
       provoking an opponent, or throwing equipment is not acceptable.
•	     Be a team player: work equally hard for yourself and your team. Your
       team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
•	     Be a good sport. Cheer (applaud) good play whether by your team or the
       other team.
•	     Encourage and praise your fellow team members and be enthusiatic.
•	     Treat all players as you would like to be treated. do not interfere with,
       bully or take unfair advantage of another player.
•	     Co-operate with your coach, team mates, officials and opponents. Without
       them there would be no game.
•	     Be willing to train and prepare for the game. Preparation helps prevent
       injury, helps your team’s performance and increases your level of
•	     Play only when you are fully fit. To play with an injury will handicap your
       team and may expose you to the risk of serious, life-long injury.


Familiarise yourself with the rules and a laws of cricket. In particular LBW rulings.
•	    Make a personal commitment to keep yourself informed of sound coaching
      principles and the principles of growth and development of children.
•	    Be reasonable in your demands on young players’ time, energy and enthusiasm.
      Always be aware that they have other interests and demands on their time.
•	    Teach your players that rules of the game are mutual agreements which no-one
      should evade or break, and are designed to maximise enjoyment and safety.
•	    Avoid over-playing the talented players; the ‘just average’ players need and deserve
      equal time.
•	    Remember that children play for fun and enjoyment and that winning is only part
      of their motivation. Encourage and praise your players at every opportunity and be

COACHES continued…

•	    Ensure that the equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate
     to the age and ability of the players.
•	   Make practice challenging and fun. Organise and prepare practice sessions taking
     into consideration the maturity and ability levels of your players.
•	   develop team respect for the ability of opponents as well as for the judgement of
     officials and opposing coaches. Lead by example. Teach and practise co-operation,
     self-discipline and proper attitudes in language, dress and behaviour.
•	   Recognise the importance of injury. Follow medical advice when determining if a
     player is ready to return to practice or play.

•	   If children are interested, encourage them to play. However do not force an
     unwilling child to participate.
•	   Encourage children to always play according to the rules.
•	   Encourage your child to work towards skill improvement and good sportsmanship
     by supporting their team both at practice sessions and games.
•	   Focus upon the child’s efforts and performance rather than the overall outcome
     of the game. This assists the child in setting realistic goals related to ability, by
     reducing the emphasis on winning.
•	   Never ridicule mistakes, failures or losses.
•	   Remember children are involved in cricket for their enjoyment, not yours.
•	   do not forget that children learn best by example; applaud good play by both
•	   Recognise the value and importance of volunteer coaches. They give their time and
     resources to provide recreational activities for the children and deserve your total
•	   demonstrate exemplary social behaviour at all times by not using foul
       language, or harassing players, coaches or officials.
•	   If you disagree with an official, raise the issue through the appropriate channels
     rather than questioning the official’s judgement and honesty in public. Remember
     most officials give their time and effort for your child’s involvement.

B.    uNDEr 11-17 coMPEtItIoN

a)    Format
      This arrangement combines both a one-day format in the first innings with the longer form
      in the second.

      Where both teams have completed their allotted overs in the First Innings or their nnings is
      completed through dismissal, the team with the most runs wins. If Time allows a second
      innings will commence,and in the applicable divisions and age groups bonus points will
      be allotted. All Games should be played until ALL allocatted time has elapsed.

      The PRESIDENTS CUP, SEMI FINALS, and FINALS will be played under the
      TWO DAY format rules, but over only one days duration., with U11s games played
      in Quarters. A second innings may be played if time allows and there is a realistic
      opportunity for a change in the result from the first innings.
      The Presidents Cup will be played between the top two teams in each division, as the
      ladder stands at Christmas. The finals series in all divisions will be played between the
      top four teams with 1 v 4 and 2 v 3.
      Playing in the semi finals. The grand final will be played in each division between the two
      winners of the semi finals. Where a washout occurs in the semi finals and no provision
      for an alternate day have been made, the highest placed teams move through to the grand

b)    Length of First Innings
      Under 11 - 45 overs
      Under 13 - 50 overs
      Under 15 - 60 overs
      Under 17 - 60 overs
      Length of Second Innings - No over restrictions apply. Game will end at cessation of

c)    Bowling Restriction
      In the first innings, no bowler shall be permitted to bowl more than 20% of the overs
      available. Subject to the limit on fast bowlers, (refer to Rules, paragraph 12) in the second
      innings no further restriction on bowling shall apply.

d)   Interruptions
     If weather prevents less than 20 overs play on the first day, a match shall
     recommence on the second day as a one-day fixture.
     Where weather has interrupted play and 20 or more overs were bowled but less
     than the full quota of overs were bowled the following formula will take effect.
     The time remaining (less 10 minutes for change of innings) should be divided by
     3.75 giving an overall number of overs available.
     The overs available should be added to the overs already bowled and then
     divided by two to give the overs available to each team.

     EXAMPLE: 28 of the allotted 45 overs were completed on day one when rain
     intervened. Three hours (180 minutes) less ten minutes (change of innings) were
     available on day two divided by 3.75 equals 45.33 overs. Add this to the overs
     already completed (28 + 45.33) giving a total of 73.33 overs. Divide this figure
     by two giving a total of 36.66 overs per side. Rounded off, the game becomes a
     37 overs per side game.

     Note: Where the team batting first has been dismissed inside 20 overs prior to
     any weather delay the above formula shall not apply and play shall continue as
     per normal on the second day.

     Interruptions to the side batting second – the same formula needs to be applied
     as is the case in the one day game (Clause 6 Average Run Rate Calculation ).
     In addition it needs to be noted that the team batting second needs to face a
     minimum of 20 overs to constitute a game under the two day format.

e)   Points (Two Day Game)
     Outright win after first innings win -    10 and 0 points respectively, plus bonus points if
     Outright win after first innings loss -   6 and 4 points, plus bonus points, if Applicable
     First innings win -                       7 and 1 points, plus bonus points        “
     Tie after both innings completed -        5 points each, plus bonus points         “
     Tie after first innings completed -       4 points each, plus bonus points         “

     Forfeit -          average points gained by winning teams playing the round
     Bye OR Wash Out - average points gained by all teams playing and completing their
     game in the round.

f)   Bonus Points
     In addition to points arising from the outcomes of games the following BONUS points shall
     be awarded in U15A, U17A grades only.
     0.01 points per run,
     0.2 per wicket.

     1. In U11s, U13b, 15b,and 17b. No bowler can bowl more than one-tenth of the
     overs to be bowled, 3 overs (assuming 11 players and 30overs play). If the total
     overs are reduced so to are the overs per player. In U13a, 15a, 17a. Bowlers are
     restricted to 20% of available overs.

     2. Overs per side shall be 30, with 20 per side constituting a game.
     3. Should weather prevent a game being completed then it shall be deemed to
     have been drawn.

     4. Should a team fail to bowl its allotment of overs in the time available, then its
     batting will be restricted to the same number of overs.

     5. Interruptions due to weather during the innings of the first team will result in a
     reduction of overs available to both teams. The calculation of the number of overs to
     be bowled shall be based on an average of 16 overs per hour (3.75 minutes / over)
     for the time remaining. For example:
     a team has completed 21 of 30 overs available to it
     it rains for 30 minutes
     the game recommences at 10am (2 hours remaining)
     there are 110 minutes left (2 hours – 10 minutes changeover) = 29 .
     overs [120-10 = 110¸3.75 = 29].
     the first team bats for a further 4 overs, the second team for 25


     6. Interruptions due to weather in the innings of the second team and which pre
     maturely end that innings will require the determination of a result according to
     the average run rate throughout both innings. The target score of the side batting
     second shall be calculated by multiplying the reduced number of overs available to
     it, by the average runs per over scored by the side batting first plus one run.
     The only exception to this formula will be in the case of a team that batted first and
     was dismissed prior to the completion of the overs available to it. In that case its
     score will be divided by the full number of overs.
     For example:
     the first team was all out for 89 after 29 overs with a run rate of 2.97 (89¸30 = 2.97)
     it rained for 30 minutes during the second innings thus reducing the overs by 8 overs
     (30¸3.75 = 8)
     team 2 therefore had to better team 1’s run rate, or put another way achieve a target
     score of 66 (2.97 x 22 = 65 +1 = 66)

This competition seeks to provide an opportunity for young players to be
introduced to the game in a non-competitive environment in which all team members are
given equal opportunities to compete. It is inconsistent with that objective for the scores of
teams involved in games to be compared to identify winners or losers. The broad outline
of fixtures is as follows:

♦	     The principal of Average Cricket is that each batsman faces a set number of         balls
       even if they are dismissed and also bowl a set number of overs.
♦	     To calculate a final total add 5 runs to the team total for every wicket
♦	     Coaches are allowed on the field to coach players if they are not umpiring,
       provided they do not disrupt the game.

1.     Length of innings
       Under 10 25 overs

2.     Length of pitch
	      Under 10 - 18m.
       If any bowler has difficulty in bowling to a full length, shorten the pitch for his or her

3.     Balls per over
       Overs to be restricted to 6 deliveries regardless of whether they are legal
       deliveries or not.

4.   Number of players
     Games are played with a maximum of 15 players, a minimum of
     7 players, with a maximum of 11 fielders at any time.

5.   Balls faced per batsman
a)   Number of balls faced per batsmen shall be calculated by dividing the number of
     balls available in a match by number of players.

b)   If all batsmen except the last batsman have faced their required number of balls that
     last batsman faces all remaining balls with the second last batsman acting as a runner
     from the bowlers end.

6.   Overs per bowler
a)   The number of overs per bowler is calculated by dividing the number of overs in
     a match by the number of players. Example: in a 25 over game with 12 players
     it would be 25 overs divided by 12 players = 2 overs for eleven bowlers with one
     bowler bowling 3 overs.
b)   It is not compulsory for a bowler to bowl their allocated overs if they are:
	    ♦	      Unable to bowl without throwing, or
	    ♦	      Unable to land the ball on the pitch.
c)   Coaches/umpires are free to control and direct their own players at any time,
     including brief coaching tips and explanations if time is not wasted.
d)   Bowling is to be from one end continuously in Under 10. Batsmen are to change
     ends either when a wicket falls or at the end of an over.

                      a guIDE to crIcKEt uMPIrINg
The following pages contain extracts of the laws only. The complete laws can be obtained
by reading, MCC: The Laws of Cricket (2000 code), and should be read in conjunction
with any local association by-laws.

It is an Umpire’s duty to ensure that the conduct of the game proceeds strictly in
accordance with the Laws. It is his duty to interpret and apply those Laws and therefore
he must constantly update-his knowledge by reading Laws and any domestic Rules and

An Umpire should always understand the intention of the Law and resort to established
precedents and commonsense. It is essential that an umpire be strictly impartial, a person
of integrity and of even temperament to remain
unmoved under all circumstances with a reasonable standard of fitness so as
to maintain concentration throughout the day’s play. These attributes will
assist in making good decisions.

The essential equipment an umpire needs to carry on the field are:
watch, counter, bowler’s markers and a notebook and pen.


tHE golDEN rulE oF crIcKEt uMPIrINg Is, ‘ IF IN DouBt Not out.’

It is much more acceptable to give a Batsman the benefit of the doubt than to give him out
if there is some doubt in your mind. However, it also occurs that some Umpires become too
negative regarding some decisions and feel more secure by taking the “easy” way out. An
Umpire will soon lose respect should he employ this procedure. A good Captain judges an
Umpire by his ability to give most of his decisions correctly, such as giving Leg Byes as Leg
Byes and not runs to the Batsman. Some Umpires feel that if you are not prepared to give
the Batsman out, don’t give him runs off the bat, in such circumstances.

Umpires who become too negative on L.B.W. and will only give them when the Striker is
almost standing on his stumps, lose the respect of Players in the long term.

Do not rush your decision. Take three seconds to say “out” or “not out”. In that time some
information may become available, such as a dropped ball, which may help in “getting it

There are three main guards taken by Batsmen:
♦	     CENTRE (sometimes called Middle, or Straight Through) which is directly in front
       of middle stump.
♦	     ONE LEG (also called Leg Stump) which is directly in front of Leg Stump
       (Batsman’s Leg Stump).
♦	     TWO LEGS (or Middle and Leg) which is a position midway between Centre and
       Leg stumps (Batsman’s Leg stump).

Guard should be given from a position directly behind, and looking over the Centre Stump
at the bowler’s end. It is usual to stand close to the stumps, upright and advise the Batsman
as to where his Bat is positioned in regard to the guard he has requested e.g. “You are
slightly too close to the off stump”. When he positions his Bat with the face to the imaginary
line, advise him “That’s Centre” or “That’s One Leg” etc.
The Batsman has the right to know the Bowler’s mode of delivery so advise him he is
bowling right arm over the Ticket etc.


Stand where comfortable, approx 4 feet to 6 feet back behind stumps. do not stand where
you may interfere with the Bowler’s run-up and delivery. This position with head in line
of middle stump will give a clear view of the Bowler’s feet and popping and return creases
with minimum head movement. If asked to stand too far back, explain discreetly that you
could miss a snick or viewing L.B.W.

Stand approx 20 metres out or length of wicket and observes bowler’s action, answers
appeals for hit wicket, stumped, run out, checks fieldsmen behind popping crease, watches
wicket keeper’s positioning, for short runs and for unfair play.

As a guide no play if bowler’s run ups do not provide a foothold or, if surface water lies
within 30 meters radius of wicket Square leg Umpire to have biggest say in light appeals,
ball pitching and not being able to picked up.
If light causes play to cease in morning session, play may be possible after lunch.
Umpires shall be final judges of the fitness of the ground, weather and light for play.
Batting side may appeal against the light after play starts. If denied, can only appeal again
if light has deteriorated.

5.       WET WEATHER

In wet weather, both fielding captain and batsmen representing their Captain are consulted.
If both agree, then the umpire shall decide to play if unsuitable but not if conditions are


Umpires should always familiarise themselves with the Boundary limits at all grounds to
which they are assigned. They should enquire as to local customs and reach agreement with
the Captains prior to the start of a match on what shall be the Boundaries.
The new boundary laws provide:
Fence: the boundary edge will be the base line of the fence.
Rope or line: the inside edge of the line.
Markers, flags, hats: the inside edge of the imaginary straight line between them. Such
markers are considered to be outside the boundary.
Sight Screen: Prefer not to be within field but if so boundary edge is imaginary straight line
joining the two nearest points of the structure.

The question of unauthorised persons entering the playing area and handling the ball or
obstructing a Fieldsman, is one on which the Australian Cricket Board has reached firm
guidelines. It has been agreed that it is for the Umpire to decide whether:
The ball would have reached the Boundary and four runs should be scored, or
The ball should be treated as still in play, or
The ball should be called “Dead’ if a Batsman be liable to be given “Out” as a result of an
unauthorised person returning the ball to the wicket area.


A sketch of the crease layout is shown on the next page. One is at each end of the pitch.
Arrows show measurements which are taken from the back edges of the bowling and
batting creases and the inside edges of the return creases. The stumps are centred on the
back edge at the bowling crease.


     At the start of each innings and of each day’s play, and on the
     resumption of play after any interval or interruption, the Umpire at the Bowler’s end
     shall call ‘play’.

     At no time on any day of the match shall there be any bowling or batting practice
     on or adjacent to the pitch.
     No practice may take place on the field if, in the opinion of the Umpires, it could
     result in a waste of time.

     No Bowler shall have a trial run-up after ‘play’ has been called in any session of
     play, except at the fall of a wicket when an Umpire may allow such a trial run-up if
     he is satisfied that it will not cause any waste of time.


     The Umpire at the Bowler’s end shall call ‘time’ on the cessation of play before any
     interval or interruption of play, at the end of each day’s play, and at the conclusion of
     the match. See Law 27: (Appeals).

        After the call of ‘time’, the Umpires shall remove the bails from both wickets.

        The last over before an interval or the close of play shall be started provided the
        Umpire, after walking at his normal pace, has arrived at his position behind the
        stumps at the Bowler’s end before time has been reached.

        The last over before an interval or the close of play shall be completed unless a
        Batsman is out, or retires during that over with three minutes of the interval, or the
        close of play, or unless the Players have occasion to leave the field.

        1. An over in progress at the close of play on the final day of a match      shall be
        completed at the request of either Captain, even if a wicket falls after time has been

        his hand for any reason.

        3. An unsuccessful appeal is made.

        5. The Umpire has called ‘no ball’ or “wide’.


	       Whether	 the	 ball	 is	 finally	 settled	 or	 not	 -	 see	 10(a)	 -	 must	 be	 a	 question	 for	 the	
        Umpires	alone	to	decide.

	      1.	 If	‘dead	ball’	is	called	prior	to	the	Striker	receiving	a	delivery,	the	Bowler	shall

11.     LAW 24 NO BALL

        The Umpire shall indicate to the Striker whether the Bowler intends to b o w l
        over or round the wicket, right or left-handed. Failure on the part of the Bowler to
        indicate in advance a change in his mode of delivery is unfair and the Umpire shall
        call and signal ‘no ball’.

        For a delivery to be fair the ball must be bowled, not thrown.
        If either Umpire is not entirely satisfied with the absolute fairness of a delivery
        in this respect he shall call and signal ‘no ball’ instantly upon delivery. Once the
        bowler’s arm has reached the level at the shoulder in delivery the elbow joint is not
        to be straightened partially or completely.

        The Umpire at the Bowler’s wicket shall call and signal ‘no ball’ if he is not satisfied
        that in the delivery stride:

     The Bowler’s back foot has landed within and not touching the return crease, or
     Some part of the front foot, whether grounded or raised, was behind the popping
     1. The Bowler’s back foot has landed within and not touching the return crease, (the
     foot may slide) or
     2. Some part of the front foot, whether grounded or raised, was behind the popping
     crease (the foot may slide).

     If the Bowler, before delivering the ball, throws it at the Striker’s wicket in an
     attempt to run him out, the Umpire shall call and signal ‘no ball’. See Law 42.126
     (Batsman Unfairly Stealing a Run) and Law 38. (Run Out).

     The Bowler, before he enters his delivery stride, may attempt to run out the non-
     striker. Such an attempt shall not count as a ball in the over. The umpire shall call
     and signal ‘dEAd BALL’ if the bowler fails to run out the non-striker.

     The Umpire shall call and signal ‘no ball’ in the event of the wicket- k e e p e r
     infringing law 40.1 (Position of Wicket Keeper) or a Fields man infringing Law
     41.5. (Limitation of 0n-side Fieldsmen) or Law 41.6. (Position of Fieldsmen).

     An Umpire shall revoke the call ‘no ball’ if the ball does not leave the bowler’s hand
     for any reason. See “W 23,3. (Either Umpire Shall Call and Signal ‘dead ball’).

     A penalty of one run per no ball shall be scored unless the call is revoked. It shall be
     in addition to any other runs scored.

     The striker may hit a No Ball and whatever runs result shall be added to his score.
     Runs made otherwise from a No Ball shall be scored No Ball.

     The Striker shall be out from a no ball if be breaks Law 34: (Hit the ball Twice)
     and either Batsman may be run out or shall be given out if either breaks Law 33.
     (Handled the Ball) of LAW 37. (Obstructing the field.)

       Should a Batsman be given out off a No Ball, the penalty for bowling shall stand.

The Umpire has only a split second to watch both feet of the Bowler in the delivery stride.
The landing of the back foot begins the delivery stride; at this stage the Umpire is concerned
only that the back foot lands within and not touching the return crease. The significant word
used in the Law is ‘landed’. The return crease is the inside edge of the return crease marking
and it is an unfair ball if the back foot lands on or outside the crease marking. As well, the
Umpire shall immediately call and signal No Ball if some part of the front foot is not behind
the batting crease, whether grounded with the heel raised.

Referring to the diagrams on the next page, examples are:

1.	A	fair	delivery
The Bowler’s front foot is behind the popping crease and the back foot is within, but not
touching, the return creases.
2. A	fair	delivery
Part of the front foot is behind the popping crease and the back foot is correctly placed.
3. A		no	ball
No part of the front foot, whether grounded or raised, is behind the popping crease.
4. A	fair	delivery
The front foot is outside the forward extension of the return crease but this does not
constitute a no ball.
5. A		no	ball
The front foot is clear beyond the popping crease.
6.	A	fair	delivery
The Bowler has landed on the ball of his foot beyond the popping crease and with the heel
raised. If some part of the raised heel is behind the popping crease the delivery is fair.
7. A		no	ball	
The back foot has not landed within the return crease or its forward extension.
8.	A	no	ball
The front foot is behind the popping crease but the back foot has landed on the return crease.
Umpire shall call and signal NO BALL and immediately call and signal dEAd BALL. The
striker is not entitled to score from a hit of a ball at rest.
9. A	fair	delivery
The Bowler’s heel is raised but clear of the return crease
10	.	Ball	coming	to	rest	in	front	of	the	striker
If a ball which the Umpire considers to have been delivered comes to rest in front of the line
of the Striker’s wicket without having touched the bat or person of the striker, the umpire
shall call and signal NO BALL and immediately call and signal dEAd BALL.The striker
is not entitled to score from a hit of a ball at rest.
12.   LAW 25: WIDE BALL

a)    JUdGING A WIdE
      The umpire shall adjudge a wide if the delivery passes so wide of the striker that
      he is unable to hit it with his bat with a normal cricket stroke. The Umpire shall not
      adjudge a ball as being a wide if:
      1. The striker, by moving from his guard position, causes the ball to pass out
      of his reach.

      2. The striker moves and thus brings the ball within his reach.
      3 It is a no-ball.

      Unless revoked, a penalty of one run for a wide shall be scored. It shall be in addition
      to any other runs scored.

      The Umpire shall revoke the call if the Striker hits a ball, which has been called

d)    BALL NOT dEAd
      The ball does not become dead on the call of ‘wide ball’.
      See Law 25.4: (The Ball is Not dead).

      All runs which are run or result from a wide ball, which is not a no ball, shall be
      scored wide balls, or if no runs are made, one shall be scored.

      The Striker shall be out from a wide ball if he breaks Law 35: (Hit Wicket); or Law
      39: (Stumped). Either Batsman may be Run Out and shall be out if he breaks Law
      33: (Handled the Ball), or Law 37: (Obstructing the Field).
      Should a Batsman he given out off a wide, the penalty for bowling it shall stand.
	     A	wide	ball	shall	not	be	reckoned	as	one	of	the	over.
      See Law 22.4: (No	Ball	or	Wide	Ball).

13.   LAW 27: APPEALS

      The Umpires shall not give a Batsman out unless appealed to by the other side,
      which shall be done prior to the Bowler beginning his runup or bowling action to
      deliver the next ball. Under Law 23.1: (x) (The Ball Becomes dead) the ball is dead
      on ‘over’ being called. This does not, however, invalidate an appeal made prior to
      the first ball of the following over provided ‘time’ has not been called. See Law 16.2:
      (Call of Time).

      An appeal ‘How’s That?’ shall cover all ways of being out.
      The Umpire at the Bowler’s wicket shall answer appeals before the other Umpire in
      all cases except those arising out of Law 35: (Hit Wicket) or Law 39: (Stumped) or
      Law 38: (Run Out) when this occurs at the Striker’s wicket.When either Umpire has
      given a Batsman not out, the other Umpire shall, within his jurisdiction, answer the
      appeal or a further appeal, provided it is made in time in accordance with a) above
      (Time of Appeals).

      An Umpire may consult with the other Umpire on whether the ball has been caught
      but not whether the ball has been hit. If the latter may have been in a better position
      to see if, after consultation, there is still doubt remaining the decision shall be in
      favour of the Batsman.

      The Umpires shall intervene if satisfied “that a Batsman, not having been given out,
      has left his wicket under a misapprehension that he has been dismissed.

      The Umpire’s decision is final. He may alter his decision, provided that such
      alteration is made promptly.

      In exceptional circumstances the Captain of the fielding side may seek permission of
      the Umpire to withdraw an appeal providing the outgoing Batsman has not left the
      playing area. If this is allowed, the Umpire shall cancel his decision.

14.   LAW 30: BOWLED

a)    OUT BOWLEd: The Striker shall be out bowled if:
      (a) His wicket is bowled down, even if the ball first touches his bat or person.
      (b) He breaks his wicket by hitting or kicking the ball on to it before the completion of a
      stroke, or as a result of attempting to guard his wicket.
      See Law 34.1: (Out Hit the Ball Twice).

b)    OUT BOWLEd - NOT L.B.W.
      Striker is Out Bowled if the ball is deflected on to his wicket even though a decision
      against him would be justified under Law 36:LBW.

15.   LAW 32: CAUGHT

      The Striker shall be Out Caught if the ball touches his bat or if it touches below the
      wrist of his hand or any part of a glove worn on the striker’s hand holding the bat,
      and is subsequently held by a Fieldsman before it touches the ground.
       1. A catch shall be considered to have been fairly made if:
       2. The fieldsman is within the field of play throughout the act of
       making the catch.
       3. The ball is not grounded beyond the boundary although the fielder may be within
       the boundary.
       4. The act of making the catch shall start from the time when a fielder first handles
       the ball and shall end when a fielder detains complete control both over the ball and
       over his own movement.
       5. The ball is hugged to the body of the catcher or accidentally lodges in his dress or,
       in the case of the Wicket Keeper, in his pads. However, a Striker may not be caught
       if a ball lodges in a protective helmet worn by a Fieldsman, in which case the Umpire
       shall call and signal ‘dead ball’. See Law 23: (dead Ball).
       6. The ball does not touch the ground even though a hand holding it does so in
       effecting the catch..
       7. A Fieldsman catches the ball, after it has been lawfully played a second time by
       the Striker, but only if the ball has not touched the ground since being first struck.
       8. A Fieldsman catches the ball after it has touched an Umpire, another Fieldsman
       or the other Batsman. However a Striker may not he caught if a ball has touched a
       protective helmet
       worn by a Fieldsman.
       9. A fielder catches the ball in the air over the boundary provided he is within and not
       touching the boundary and the ball has not been grounded beyond the boundary.
       10. The ball is caught off an obstruction within the boundary,
        provided it has not previously been agreed to regard the
       obstruction as a boundary.

When	a	Fielder	catches	the	ball	or	is	carrying	the	ball	before	he	completes	the	catch,	and	
he	is	touching	or	grounded	beyond	the	boundary,	six	runs	shall	be	scored.

If	a	Fielder	releases	the	ball	before	he	crosses	the	boundary,	the	ball	will	be
considered	to	be	still	in	play	and	it	may	be	caught	by	either	him	or	another	fielder	provided	
the	catch	is	made	within	the	field	of	play.


a)     OUT L.B.W.
       The Striker shall be out LBW in the circumstances set out below:
       1.     Striker Attempting to Play the Ball
       The Striker shall he out LBW if all of the following circumstances are met:
       The bowler delivers the ball not being a no ball.

        The ball is pitched in line between wicket and wicket or outside the striker’s off
        The ball hits the striker’s body or pads not having previously touched his bat
        The point of impact is in line between wicket and wicket.
        The ball would have gone on to hit the stumps.
        2.      Striker Making No Attempt to Play the Ball
        The above circumstances apply but can be given out LBW if the first           point of
        interception is outside the line of wicket to wicket on the off      side.
        3.      Striker hit on the full
        The above circumstances apply but the umpire should assume that the           path of
        the ball before interception would have continued after inter-       ception straight on
        along its established path.
Ball 1: The point of impact on the Striker’s person is not in a straight line between wicket
        and wicket: ‘Not out’. But, as the point of impact is outside the line of the off stump,
        the Striker would be Out if he made no genuine attempt to play the ball - provided
        that the ball would have hit the wicket.
Ball 2: The ball would have hit the wicket: ‘Out’. The Umpire must be satisfied that the ball
        is not rising sufficiently to pass over the top of the stumps.
Ball 3: The ball would have hit the wicket: ‘Out’.
Ball 4: The ball pitched between wicket and wicket and providing the Umpire is satisfied
        that the break will not cause the ball to pass outside the off stump: ‘Out’.
Ball 5: A ball pitching outside the line of the leg stump: ‘Not out’.

17.    LAW 38: RUN OUT
a)     OUT: RUN OUT
       Either Batsman shall be out Run Out if in running or at any time while the ball is in
       play except in the circumstances described in Law 39: (Stumped) - he is out of his
       ground and his wicket is put down by the opposite side. If, however, a Batsman in
       running makes good his ground he shall not be out Run Out if he subsequently leaves
       his ground, in order to avoid injury, and the wicket is put down.

b)       ‘NO BALL’ CALLEd
         If a ‘No Ball’ has been called, either batsman may be subject to being run out whether
         or not a run is being attempted. However, if he is not attempting a run he cannot be
         run out by the wicket keeper without the intervention of another fielder.
         If the Batsmen have crossed in running, he who runs for the wicket that is put down
         shall be out; if they have not crossed, he who has left the wicket which is put down
         shall be out. If a Batsman remains in his ground or returns to his ground and the other
         Batsman joins him there, the latter shall be out if his wicket is put down.
         If a Batsman is run out, only that run which is being attempted shall not be scored.
         If, however, an injured Striker himself is run out, no runs shall be scored. See Law
         2.8: (Transgression of the Laws by Injured Batsman or Runner).
(a)	BALL	PLAYED	ON	TO	OPPOSITE	WICKET:	If	the	ball	is	played	on	to	the	opposite	wicket	neither	
Batsman	is	liable	to	be	Run	Out	unless	the	ball	has	been	touched	by	a	Fieldsman	before	the	wicket	
is	broken.
(b)	ENTRY	IN	SCORE	BOOK:	The	correct	entry	in	the score	book	when	a	batsman	is	given	out	under	
this	Law	is	‘run	out’,	and	the	Bowler	does	not	get	credit	for	the	wicket.
Definitions:	 This	 is	 a	 complex	 Law	 covering	 all	 situations	 where	 either	 Batsman,	 being	 out	 of	 his	
ground	with	the	ball	in	play,	is	run	out	by	the	wicket being	put	down	correctly	by	the	fielding	side.

18.      LAW 39: STUMPED

a)       OUT: STUMPEd
         The Striker shall be out Stumped if, in receiving a ball, not being a no ball, he is out
         of his ground otherwise than in attempting a run and the wicket is put down by the
         Wicket Keeper without the intervention of another Fieldsman, subject to Law 40.3.
         The Wicket Keeper may take the ball in front of the wicket in an attempt to Stump
         the Striker only if the ball has touched the bat or person of the Striker.
The	Striker	may	be	out	Slumped	if	in	the	circumstances	stated	in	1,	above,	the	wicket	is	
broken	by	a	ball	rebounding	from	the	Wicket-	Keeper’s	person	or	equipment	or	is	kicked	or	
thrown	by	the	Wicket-Keeper	on	to	the	wicket.

19.        LAW 40: THE WICKET KEEPER
The wicket keeper is the only member of the fielding side permitted to wear gloves and
external leg guards. He must remain wholly behind the wicket until the ball touches the bat
or person of the Striker, the ball passes the wicket, or the Striker attempts a run.
The intention of the Law is to give the Striker a right to play the ball and guard his wicket
without being obstructed by the Wicket Keeper.
      The Fieldsman may stop the ball with any part of his person, but if he wilfully
      stops it otherwise, 5 runs shall he added to the run or runs already scored; if no run
      has been scored 5 penalty runs shall be awarded. The run in progress shall count
      provided that the Batsmen have crossed at the instant of the act. The penalty shall
      be added to the score of the batting side.
      The number of on side Fieldsmen behind the popping crease at the instant of the
      Bowler’s delivery shall not exceed two. In the event of infringement by the fielding
      side, the Umpire at the Striker’s end shall call and signal No Ball at the instant of
      delivery or as soon as possible thereafter.
      While the ball is in play and until the ball has made contact with the bat or the
      Striker’s person or has passed his bat, no Fieldsman, other than the Bowler, may
      stand on or have any part of his person extended over the pitch (measuring 22 yards/
      20.12m. x 10 feet/3.05m.). In the event of a Fieldsman contravening this Law, the
      Umpire at the Bowler’s end shall call and signal No Ball at the instant of delivery
      or as soon as possible thereafter. See Law 40. 1. (Position of Wicket Keeper).
      Fieldsmen may walk in with the bowler but not move sideways or attempt to distract
      the striker, in such a case the umpire will call and signal a dead ball and inform the
      fieldsman and his captain of the indiscretion.
      Protective helmets, when not in use by members of the fielding side, shall only be
      placed, if above the surface, on the ground behind the Wicket Keeper. In the event of
      the ball, when in play, striking a helmet whilst in this position, five penalty runs shall
      be awarded, as laid down in Law 4 1.3 and Note (a).


      The Captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that play is conducted within
      the spirit of the game as well as within the laws.
      The Umpires are the sole judges of fair and unfair play.
      The umpires under Laws 2000 are required to intervene and take action if either
      Caution, Final Warning or Report in the following circumstances:
      Player returning to the field without permission
      Illegal fielding of a ball
      Changing the condition of the ball
      Wasting time

     damaging the pitch, especially the protected area
     deliberate short runs
     dangerous or unfair bowling
     Any instance of unfair play where without appeal an umpire will call and signal
     ‘dead Ball’.
     An Umpire is justified in intervening and shall call and signal ‘Dead Ball’ if, in his
     opinion, any Player of the fielding side incommodes the Striker by any noise or
     action while he is receiving the ball.

     It shall be considered unfair if any Fieldsman wilfully obstructs a Batsman in
     running. In these circumstances the Umpire shall call and signal ‘dead Ball’ and
     allow any completed runs and the run in progress or, alternatively, any boundary

     1. It is unfair for either batsman to attempt to steal a run during the bowler’s run
     2. If the bowler throws the ball towards the striker’s end before entering his delivery
     stride, the umpire shall call and signal ‘No Ball’ with no further penalty on the
     bowler. If the striker is not dismissed the umpire shall call and signal ‘dead Ball’
     as soon as the batsmen have crossed, and return the batsmen to their original ends.
     3. Should the bowler, before entering his delivery stride, throw the         ball at the
     non-striker’s end and if the batsman is not dismissed, the umpire shall call and
     signal ‘dead Ball’ and return the batsmen to their original ends. The ball shall not
     count in the over.
     4. Should the bowler make no play, the umpire shall call and signal ‘dead Ball’ as
     soon as the batsmen cross in any such attempt.

     In the event of a Player failing to comply with the instructions of an Umpire,
     criticising his decisions by word or action, showing dissent, generally behaving
     in a manner which might bring the game into disrepute e.g. indulging in cheating,
     repeated appeals knowing that the batsman is not out, repeated advancing towards
     an umpire in an aggressive manner when appealing the Umpire concerned shall
     report the matter to the other Umpire and to the Player’s Captain requesting the
     latter to take action. If this proves ineffective, the Umpire shall report the incident as
     soon as possible to the Executive of the Player’s team and to any Governing Body
     responsible for the match, who shall take any further action which is considered
     appropriate against the Player or Players concerned.
                                a guide to scoring
The scorer’s job is one that requires considerable concentration and it is essential for
scorers to sit side-by-side. This way, they can compare scores, change of bowlers, incoming
batsmen, names of fieldsmen who took catches etc., at the end of every over.

Obtain a list of your team from the captain and keep it handy for you both to see.
Every ball must be recorded. If no runs or sundries occur then record a dot against the
batsman and also in the bowler’s column.
When runs occur, they have to recorded against the batsman, added to the total score and
recorded in the bowler’s column and compare runs with fellow scorer.
When sundries occur, they have to be recorded in the appropriate sundries column, added to
the total score and shown in the bowler’s column (see below) and don’t forget to compare
with your fellow scorer.
Try to work from the top of the page, down.
At the end of each over, total runs in bowler’s column (see below) still comparing with
fellow scorer.
Time in and time out for batsmen is handy to keep if you have time.

1.     WIDES
a)     A wide is shown as W in the bowling column (meaning one run is added to the
       bowler’s figures, one run is recorded in the Sundries column against Wides and one
       run is added to the total).
b)     For more than one Wide (example Umpire signals byes) it is to be recorded as either
       W2, W3, or W4 depending on the number of runs batsmen take.
c)     don’t forget that if the batsmen run two then three runs are recorded (two byes plus
       penalty one run for the wide) in sundries column as wides, 3 added to total score and
       W3 (3 runs) credited against bowler.
d)     An over, which contains a wide, cannot be a maiden over.

2.     NO BALLS
a)     When a No Ball is bowled and no other runs are scored, enter an N in the bowling
       column, enter 1 in the No Ball column under sundries and add 1 run to the progressive
       run total. (Don’t forget at the end of the over that the N represents one run against
       the bowler and has to be added to his progressive score).
b)     When runs are scored from a No Ball, enter the runs against that batsman with a
       circle around them, enter the runs in the bowler’s column with a circle around them
       and add total runs to the progressive score. e.g. if four runs have been struck, show
       q) against the batsman, 1 in the No Ball column, add 5 to the total score (4 runs plus
       penalty 1) and 9) against the bowler (noting that the circle meaning that 5 runs are
       added to the bowler’s tally). The reason to show only 4 in a circle is so if there is a
       dispute in the total runs scored, it is easier to find all the 1’s, 2’s, 3’s, 4’s and 6’s on a
       score sheet than trying to remember that a 5 in the bowlers column is really a 4 plus
       1 penalty run.

c)   When a no ball is called by the umpire who then proceeds to call leg-bye (to indicate
     to the scorer that the batsman did not touch the ball) all runs go to no balls. For
     example, if the batsmen run 2, then 3 runs are put in the no ball column. It would
     be shown in the bowler’s column as (2L) and 3 runs are added to the bowler’s
     progressive score, remembering again that the circle denotes 1 run penalty as per
d)   The byes and leg byes are only signaled to show that they were not to go the
     batsman (Law 24.9).
	    To	 help	 clarify	 this	 point,	 the	 first call	 the	 umpire	 makes	 is	 the	 one	 shown	 in	 the	
     scorebook.	If	a	wide	and	no	ball	are	called	for	the	one	ball,	then	it	is	recorded	as	
     no	ball	because	in	most	instances	(regardless	of	the	order	the	umpire	calls	the	wide	
     and	no	ball),	it		is	the	no	ball	error	that	would		have	occurred		first.	An over, which
     contains a no ball, cannot be a maiden over.
e)   WIdES (W) & NO BALLS (N) Counted as runs to batsman NO – counted as legal
     balls faced by batsman NO (U11 and U13B YES) - Counted on total score YES -
     Counted as runs against the bowler YES - Counted as legal ball bowled NO.

3.   BYES are recorded as B. This is shown as 1 in the Bye column in sundries, one
     to the total score and shown as Bl in the bowler’s column but NOT added to the
     bowler’s figures. (See example below). Two, three and four byes are shown as B2,
     B3 and B4 respectively.
4.   LEG BYES are shown as L. This is shown as 1 in the Leg Bye column in sundries,
     one to the total score and shown as Ll in the bowler’s column but NOT added to
     the bowler’s figures. (See example below). Two, three and four leg byes are shown
                                                             WIdES (W)           NO BALLS (N)
     Counted as runs to batsman - No Ball - NO                        NO                 NO
     Counted as legal ball faced by batsman                           NO                 NO
     U11 & U13B                                                     YES                  YES
     Counted on total score                                         YES                  YES
     Counted as runs against the bowler                             YES                  YES

      as L2, L3 and L4 respectively. The reason byes and leg byes are shown as either 0
      or L is so that they can be traced in case the book does not total at the end of the

5.    FALL OF WICKETS are shown as X in the bowler’s analysis. When a wicket
      fails, complete time batsman was out, how batsman was out, name of bowler and
      how many runs batsman made, score at fall of wicket, name of batsman out, name of
      batsman not out plus his score in brackets.

a)    Catches should always be shown with the name of the person who took the catch.
      This is most important for trophies at the end of the season.
b)    If the name of the catcher is unknown, scorers should always check with the captain
      of that team at the first break.
c)    If the catch has been taken by a substitute fielder, then his name should be recorded
      as Ct. J. Bloggs (sub).
d)    When a wicketkeeper takes a catch, by putting a small w-k above his name denotes
      him as the wicketkeeper. This is important for trophies at the end of the season.
      Law 32: If a batsman is caught, no run is scored under any circumstances

      When the umpire calls a dead ball and the batsmen have run, no runs are to be
      recorded and the batsmen will return to their respective ends. The ball is recorded as
      being faced by the batsman. If, however, the bowler dropped the ball before delivery
      and the umpire signals dead ball, nothing is recorded.

8.    RUN OUTS
a)    When a player is run out going for his first run, no runs are recorded and he is
      shown as out RUN OUT. The wicket is not credited to the bowler.
b)    When a player is run out going for his second or third run, only the completed
      run/s are credited to the batsman, added to the total score and shown against the
      bowler. Therefore if a player is run out going for his third run, only the runs he has
      completed (in this case 2 runs have been completed) are shown against him, 2 runs
      added to the total score and 2 runs recorded against the bowler.

      When a bowler is taken off, a thick vertical line beside the over he last completed
      will indicate the end of his spell.

      When a maiden over is bowled, show a large M for that over. This makes it easier to
      add up number of maidens bowled.
         No Ball: N If the batsmen run, then the runs are circled and credited to the batsman’s
         runs. The penalty one run for no ball is added to total score and also against the
         Wide:             W If more than one wide is run, add runs plus one penalty run
                                to total score and credit total runs against the bowler.
         Bye:              B    One bye is shown as Bl, two byes are shown as B2 etc. Runs
                                are recorded in sundries column, added to total score and
                                shown as Bl or B2 etc. in bowlers but not included in
                                bowler’s figures.
         Leg Bye:          L    One leg bye is shown as Ll, two leg byes are shown
                                as L2 etc. Runs are recorded in sundries column, added
                                to total score and shown as Ll or L2 etc. in bowlers but not
                                included in bowler’s figures.
         Fall of Wicket: X      Shown in bowler’s analysis (but not if bowler is not credited
                                with the wicket such as Run Out).
         Run Out:          R    Can only be recorded as R when runs have not been made.
         Maiden Over: M Shown where no runs are recorded in bowler’s analysis.
Over 1          5 runs                                                      =    0/5
Over 2          Wide + penalty 1 run, one run                               =    0/8
Over 3          Maiden Over (byes are not recorded against bowler)          =    M
Over 4          1 leg bye, wicket, one run                                  =    1/9
Over 5          No ball (1 penalty run), 7 runs                             =    1/17
Over 6           Run out, 6 runs off no ball (include 1 penalty run)        =    1/24
Over 7          12 runs, wicket                                             =     2/36
Over 8          Wicket maiden                                               =     3/36
a.      When an innings is declared closed and the entire team has not batted, still fill in the
       names of all the batsmen to who would have batted. The reason for this is that at the
       end of the season, the selectors will want to know who has played during the year
       and it is difficult to remember who was selected some months previous.
b.     Total your book by adding batsmen’s runs to total sundries.
c.     Extend the bowling analysis for each bowler (total overs,
       maidens, wickets, runs). Add total bowling runs to leg byes and byes to arrive at the
       total score.
Whenever play is interrupted due to rain or bad light, make a note of time lost for recalculation
of overs
