U11 PLAYING CONDITIONS 2018

The Laws of Cricket 2017 shall apply with the following amendments:-

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.   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.

3.   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 20 overs’ duration (or 18 if six players).

4.   The batting side shall be divided into pairs and each pair shall bat for between 4 and 6 overs with an overall maximum of 20 overs per innings.

5.   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 shall face the next ball. Batters shall change ends at the fall of each wicket, except on the last ball of the over.

6.   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.

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 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 5 and 6), 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 two pairs to bat again in the last pair. (This also applies if a team has an odd number of players).

11. If a team only fields 5, 7 or 9 players then the game may be played as per Condition 10.

12. By mutual agreement of both team managers a match may be played in accordance with U13 Playing Condition 2 below.

U13 PLAYING CONDITIONS 2018

As for U11 except:-

1.   The Pitch shall be 21 yards in length.

2.   In the 20-over Divisions, a team shall consist of 11 players (or at least 6 by prior agreement), and the U15 Playing Conditions 2, 5 and 6 will apply (instead of U11 Conditions 3-12) 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. Batters can continue their innings beyond this figure if their ‘retirement’ would end the innings before the agreed number of overs has been bowled.

U15 PLAYING CONDITIONS 2018

The Laws of Cricket 2017shall apply with the following amendments: (Conditions 3 and 4 are recommended but optional)

1.   A team shall consist of 11 players (or at least 6 by prior agreement), 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 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 18 if 6 players) or less by mutual agreement due to practical reasons (poor weather, late arrival etc).

2.   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.

3.   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’. Field changes are not permitted for free hit deliveries unless there is a change of striker.

4.   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)..

5.   No bowler shall bowl more than 4 overs in a match (or 1/5 of the total agreed overs).

6.   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.

7.   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.

ALL AGE GROUPS

1.   The ECB Boundary Guidelines state the following as appropriate:  U11/13 – 33-60yds (30-55m); U15 - 38-71yds (35-65m).

2.   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.
