2016 Cornwall Cricket League Rules
Summary of Changes – March 2016
It has been an eventful close season with regards to the rules and clubs are strongly advised to familiarise themselves with the following notable changes, in addition to the various alterations passed at the AGM”.
References to Higher, Intermediate and Standard Tiers have been replaced with:
Premier Tier (Premier League)
Tier 1 (County 1 & Div 2)
Tier 2 (Divs 3 & 4)
Tier 3 (Divs 5 & 6)
Registration, Transfer and Loan Players
Rules have been relaxed and rewritten, as passed at the AGM.
Premier League Playing Conditions
With the decision to play 50/50 games the rules have been revised to basically mirror the current County Division 1 Rules.
Main exceptions - 20% Bowlers Overs restrictions as opposed to 25% in the rest of the League.
220.127.116.11 The overs available to each side shall be reduced by one over for every seven minutes of any delay or interruption as opposed to six minutes across the rest of the League
Points for a Tie will now be 7 points as all other divisions.
Fielding Restrictions remain unaltered.
Premier 50/50 Cup Rules only will continue with:
18.17 - One Free hit after a no ball foot fault and
18.18 - Power Play Regulations.
The League has looked at the current ECB Regs and decided that for 2016 it is best to keep life simple for all concerned and have the Premier League and Tier 1 playing under the same playing conditions.
19 / 20 / 21
Tier 1/2/3 Playing Conditions
With the entire League now basically playing under one set of playing conditions the relevant rules have been re-designed to make easier reading.
Rule 18 (Premier) is now the default set for all divisions.
Rules 19, 20 & 21 either show the variations in that particular tier or a reference number to the relevant default rule.
All sub sections 2 to 9 are numbered consistently across all tiers -
e.g. Bowling Restrictions are 18.6, 19.6, 20.6 and 21.6
Division 2 Clubs please note:
Over Rates (as in 18.10) now apply as part of the Tier 1 Conditions.
The relevant box on the new result sheet MUST be filled in and points deductions will apply for those failing to meet 17 overs per hour.
26 - 41
These have been rewritten in accordance to the latest requirements from ECB.
The League has also recently agreed to be part of the ECB MCC Pilot Discipline Project for 2016.
As a result Rules 28, 35(f) and 36 have been rewritten accordingly.
As three additional sections have also been added to the Section previous rules 39 to 41 have been renumbered 42 to 44.
This rule has been updated significantly and all Premier, County 1 and potential County 1 clubs are strongly advised to read carefully and understand the ramifications.
Failure to comply will result in automatic relegations.
