Match Report 4 – 14th May 2023

The league has received three umpires reports relating to matches which exceeded the allocation to ball the overs within the required time.

Can we remind captains and players to respect the league constitution and work with umpires to ensure the match completes within the time allocation. The league constitution requires fielding side to ball their 45 overs within 3 hours which actually give captains 30 minutes extra as the rate of over is 3 minutes for every over. The penalty for exceeding the the allocated time is a fine of £5.00 for every over balled after the 3 hour allocation.

Tips who to ball your overs within the timescale:

  • Fielders jog between overs and be ready to ball the next over by the time umpires and batsman are in position to play the ball.
  • Captains to position fielders to their strength but limit the distance they have to travel between overs, avoid fielders going from one side of the field to the other eg. long on to long on, third man to third man etc
  • Captains to think about moving fielders between overs and only move fielders during the over when necessary.
  • Position bowlers near their bowling end to avoid the time it takes them to be ready to ball their over.
  • Drink fluids before you take the field of play to avoid have additional drink breaks other than those approved by the umpires or official drinks break at the half point interval or two breaks (every 15 overs) on a very very hot day.
