League Playing Conditions 2015

The Laws of Cricket 2000 Code 5th Edition (2013) shall apply with the following exceptions:-

UNDER 11
1. The Pitch shall be 20 yards in length, the ball shall weigh 4.75 ounces and the stumps shall be 27 inches above the ground and 8 inches wide.)
2.  Each team shall consist of 8 players (or any number between 6 and 10 by prior agreement). Each game shall consist of one innings per side of 16 overs’ duration (or between 12 and 20 dependent on the number of players).
3. The batting side shall be divided into pairs and each pair shall bat for 4 overs (or more by mutual agreement with an overall maximum of 20 overs per innings).
4. Batters shall have unlimited ‘lives’ but each time a batter is out 5 runs will be deducted from the total score. No batter who is out for any reason shall face the next ball. Batters shall change ends at the fall of each wicket, except on the last ball of the over.
5. Each player on the fielding side must bowl, with the exception of the wicketkeeper. No player shall bowl more than 3 overs in a 16-over game, 2 overs in a 12-over game or 4 overs in a 20-over game.
6.  In all matches, no fielder except the wicketkeeper may field nearer than 11 yards measured from the middle stump of the batting end, except behind the wicket on the off-side.
7. In all divisions, excluding the Premier, a maximum of two extra balls per over will be allowed for wides and no-balls. Thereafter, any such balls will score 2 (plus any runs made off the bat or as byes) and no extra balls will be bowled.
8. Each team shall commence its innings with a score of 200 runs.
9. The winning team shall be the one scoring the highest number of runs after deductions for the loss of wickets. If these scores are equal then the game will be declared a tie.
10. In all matches, no fielder except the wicketkeeper may field nearer than 11 yards measured from the middle stump of the batting end, except behind the wicket on the off-side.
11. In the event of the umpires being satisfied that a player has become incapacitated during a game, that player may be substituted by a reserve who must be eligible (see League Rules 8 and 9), who may bat and/or bowl. If no reserve is available, any over(s) due to be played by the injured player shall be bowled by another player without exceeding that player’s quota. The manager of the fielding side shall choose one of the players in the first three pairs to bat a second time in the last pair. If a team only fields 5, 7 or 9 players then the game may be played in the same way.
12. Each team must provide an adult umpire who is, preferably, a qualified coach and not a relative of any of the players, as well as an adult scorer who fully understands these conditions and the principles of scoring. Both these individuals must have had a criminal record check, which has been verified by the club’s welfare officer, or completed a self-declaration form which the officer holds. (Adult means 18 or over.)

UNDER 13
As for all the U11 Conditions except:-
1. The Pitch shall be 21 yards in length.
2. In the 20-over Division(s),  each team shall consist of between eight and eleven players, by prior agreement between the two team managers and the U15 Playing Conditions 4, 5 and 6 (i) will apply (instead of U11 Conditions 3-11) with the exception that a batter must retire on reaching or passing a personal total of 30 runs and will not be allowed to return.

UNDER 15
1.  A team shall consist of 11 players, up to three of whom may reach the age of 16 no later than 31st August of the current year save that none of these three players shall have played for a County Board or Regional squad (eg Wales, Gloucester, Gwent etc) during the preceding and/or current season.  Each innings shall be of 20 overs duration (or 16 by agreement between both managers).
2. The delivery following a no ball or wide shall be a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it. The normal penalty run will be recorded and any additional runs legitimately made will also be scored.  If the delivery for the free hit is also an illegal delivery (any kind of no ball or a wide ball) then the next delivery will also become a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it and so on.  Once a legitimate delivery has been bowled, there will be no more ‘free hits’ for the rest of the over.  For any free hit, the striker can be dismissed only under the circumstances that apply for a no ball, even if the delivery for the free hit is called wide ball. Field changes are not permitted for free hit deliveries unless there is a change of striker. The umpires will signal a free hit by (after the normal no ball/wide signal) extending one arm straight upwards and moving it in a circular motion.
3. The winner shall be the team scoring the highest number of runs; if the scores are level, then the result is a tie irrespective of the number of wickets taken.
4. No bowler shall bowl more than 4 overs in a match (or 3 overs in a 16-over match with one allowed to bowl 4).   A batter must retire on reaching or passing a personal total of 50 runs and will not be allowed to return. Batters can continue their innings beyond this figure if their ‘retirement’ would end the innings before the agreed number of overs has been bowled.
5. (i) In all matches, no fielder, except the wicketkeeper, shall be allowed to field nearer than 8 yards (11 if the fielder is under 13 years of age) from the middle stump of the batting end, except behind the wicket on the offside.  (ii) Throughout the innings only five fielders are allowed outside a field restriction marking area (bounded by two semi-circles centred on each middle stump, each with a radius of 30 yards, and joined by a parallel line on each side of the pitch at the instant of delivery).  This part of this Condition referring to the field restriction marking area is recommended but optional.
