Tribute T20 Kernow Crash

12th April 2019 Posted in Cups and Latest and League by Michael Weeks

St Austell Brewery’s Marc Bishop and League Chairman Andrew Kent

There is a new look to the Cornish Cricket League season which begins on Saturday 20 April. The ten Premier League clubs will compete in the new ‘Tribute T20 Kernow Crash’ competition over the first four Saturdays.

In commenting on the new set up League Chairman Andrew Kent said “As a League, we are delighted to welcome St Austell Brewery as competition sponsors. It continues their valued support of Cornish Cricket over recent seasons. The League are pleased to be able to deliver an additional T20 competition as per the wishes of clubs, following the return to a ten team Premier division in 2019. With the lower divisions not starting until May, it also gives the opportunity for a wider audience to attend the opening rounds. Finals Day should be a special event and will also be promoting the ECB’s All-Stars Cricket and new  ‘Inspiring Generations’ strategy”.

On behalf of St Austell Brewery Trade Marketing Manager, Marc Bishop commented “ We are thrilled to sponsors of this exciting new competition in Cornwall. Tribute is synonymous with team sports, in particular, rugby and cricket so this fits perfectly with our brand ambitions. We look forward to some excellent cricket culminating in a finals day on Sunday 19th May at Grampound Road Cricket Club ”.

The competition sees clubs having two home and two away fixtures in the group stages. They have been split broadly into two geographical pools but to avoid byes there will be a ‘cross pool’ fixture on each match day. Clubs will play the same opponent in two separate T20 matches.  The first commences at 1.00pm and, following an interval, the second default  start time is 4.10pm. However, this can be delayed by up to thirty minutes due to weather interruptions in the first game but must be completed by 7.30pm. During the pool stage of the competition, two points will be awarded for a win, one point for a tie or no result and no points for a loss. The two pool winners and runners-up will progress to the Finals Day with semi-finals, at 10.30am and 1.30pm and the final at 4.30pm.

The opening round of fixtures on Saturday sees St Just take on Truro and  Falmouth entertain Redruth. In the cross pool game, Penzance hosts Wadebridge. In the east pool, derbies see Grampound Road at home to St Austell and Werrington entertaining Callington.

18      PREMIER  DIVISION T20 CUP COMPETITION RULES
18.1  Competition Format
18.1.1 Clubs will be divided into two pools, on a broad geographical basis
18.1.2 Each club shall play matches on set matchdays, as prescribed by LMC.
18.1.3 During the Pool Stage of the competition, two points will be awarded for a Win, one point for a Tie or No Result and no points for a Loss.
18.1.4 Where teams finish on equal points, the team with the higher net run rate in the Pool Matches will be placed in the higher position
18.1.5 Net Run Rate

A team’s net run rate is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over scored by that team, the average runs per over scored against that team.  In the event of a team being all out in less than its full allocation of overs, the calculation of the net run rate of both teams shall be based on the full quota of overs to which the batting team would have been entitled and not on the number of overs in which the team was dismissed.  Only those matches where results are achieved will count for the purpose of net run rate calculations.  Where a match is abandoned, but a result is achieved under Duckworth/Lewis/Stern, for net run rate purposes Team 1 will be accredited with Team 2’s Par Score on abandonment off the same number of overs faced by Team 2. Where a match is concluded but with DLS having been applied at an earlier point in the match, Team 1 will be accredited with 1 run less than the final Target Score for Team 2 off the total number of overs allocated to Team 2 to reach the target.

18.1.6 The two pool winners and two runners-up shall progress to the semi-finals, where each pool winner shall play against the runner-up from the opposite pool.
18.1.7 LMC shall undertake all arrangements, including financial, for the Finals Day.
   
18.2 Match Balls / Clothing
18.2.1 One new pink ball per innings, conforming to the specifications laid down by the CCL, shall be used and spare balls shall be of the same brand. Before the toss for innings in the first match of the day, the home club shall supply the umpires with four approved new balls and at least 4 spare balls of varying ages and use.CCL shall provide new and spare balls for the Finals Day.
18.2.2 Players may wear coloured clothing
   
18.3  Hours of Play
18.3.1 During the Pool stage, each club shall play one Fixture against each of four other clubs: one of these may not be in its own pool.  The Fixture will consist of two matches played at the same venue on the same day. Unless agreed otherwise, the first match shall commence at 1.00pm.  There shall be an interval of 30 minutes between the first and second match. The scheduled Close of Play for the first match shall be deemed to be no later than 4.10pm unless the tea interval is taken during the first match, in which case it shall be 4.30pm.  The scheduled Close of Play for the second match shall be deemed to be no later than 7.30pm.  These times to be used in all “time remaining” calculations under Rule 18.5.
18.3.2 The toss for innings in the second match.
18.3.2.1 The exchange of team sheets and the toss for the second match shall take place within five minutes of the conclusion of the first match.  Prior to the toss, the umpires shall decide whether or not a roller shall be used before the second match and if so, which one shall be used and they shall inform the captains accordingly before the toss takes place.  In exceptional circumstances, the umpires shall have the discretion to delay the toss for up to ten minutes, should either captain so request.
18.3.3 For each match, there will normally be two sessions of play of 1 hour 15 minutes each, separated by an interval of 10 minutes.  If the innings of the team batting first is completed prior to the scheduled time for the Interval, the Interval shall take place immediately and the innings of the team batting second will commence correspondingly earlier
18.3.4 If the first match is completed later than the scheduled time, the interval between the first and second match may be reduced by the same amount, up to a maximum reduction of 10 minutes – ie. the minimum length of the interval shall be 20 minutes.
18.3.5 No drinks intervals are permitted
   
18.4 Length of Innings
18.4.1 In Uninterrupted Matches (matches which are neither delayed nor interrupted) each team shall bat for 20 overs unless all out earlier
18.4.2 If the team fielding first fails to bowl the required number of overs by the scheduled time for the cessation of the first innings, play shall continue until the required number of overs has been bowled.
18.4.3 If the team batting first is dismissed in fewer than 20 overs, the team batting second shall be entitled to bat for 20 overs.
18.4.4 If the team fielding second fails to bowl 20 overs by the scheduled time for the cessation of the second innings, the hours of play shall, subject to conditions of ground, weather and light, be extended until the required number of overs has been bowled or a result has been achieved.
18.4.5 Teams are expected to be in a position to bowl the first ball of the last of their 20 overs within 1 hour 15 minutes playing time.  A six-run penalty shall be added to the batting side total for every full over not bowled in the allotted time. In reduced overs matches, the fielding side has a one over leeway and the umpires may also allow for stoppages and must advise the fielding captain of the time allowed to bowl the reduced number of overs.
   
18.5 Delayed or Interrupted Matches
18.5.1 General
18.5.1.1 The timing and duration of all suspensions of play (including all intervals) or delays to a match will be taken into account when calculating the length of time available for either innings.  When calculating revisions to the number of overs to be bowled, if the first match finishes before the scheduled time and there is a delay or interruption to the second match, then the length of time “saved” by the early finish shall be deducted from the length of the delay or interruption.
18.5.1.2 The object shall always be to rearrange the number of overs so that, if possible, both teams have the opportunity of batting for the same number of overs.
18.5.1.3 When playing time has been lost the revised number of overs to be bowled in the match shall be based on a rate of 3.75 minutes per over in the total time available for play (that is, time already played added to the time remaining though not including the time allocated to the interval).  Should calculations regarding numbers of overs result in a fraction of an over, the fraction shall be ignored. In the event of a suspension occurring in the middle of an over, the total number of overs to be bowled in the match will be calculated as if the over in progress at the time of the interruption had been completed.  The innings of the team batting first will continue from the point of the interruption.  The revision of the number of overs should ensure, whenever possible, that both teams have the opportunity to bat for the same number of overs. (Where this is possible if the total number of overs in the match thereby calculated results in an odd number, then one over shall be added and the new total divided by two).
18.5.1.4 A fixed time will be specified for the commencement of the interval, and also the close of play for the match, by applying a rate of 3.75 minutes per over in respect of each over already bowled and/or scheduled to be bowled in each innings. All relative delays, interruptions in play, and the duration of the interval will be taken into account. If this calculation produces a close of play time that is earlier than the original time for cessation of play, then one additional over should be allocated to each team, with the interval and close of play times being recalculated accordingly.  If there is more than one interruption to the innings of the side batting first, the above calculations should always be based on the originally scheduled close of play, rather than the rescheduled close resulting from the previous interruption.
18.5.1.5 The re-calculated number of overs will be the minimum number that ensures that the rescheduled cessation time is no earlier than the original cessation time.
18.5.1.6 If the team fielding second fails to bowl the required number of overs by the scheduled cessation time, the hours of play shall, subject to conditions of ground, weather and light, be extended until the overs have been bowled or a result has been achieved.
18.5.1.7 The team batting second shall not bat for a greater number of overs than the first team unless the latter completed its innings in less than its allocated overs.  To constitute a match, a minimum of 6 overs has to be bowled to the side batting second, unless a result has been achieved earlier.
18.5.1.8 After any hold-up in play, the Umpires will calculate the number of overs lost/remaining. The Umpires will both satisfy themselves as to the correctness of all such calculations before allowing play to take place. The Umpires will notify the Captains and Scorers of such decisions.
18.5.2 Delay or interruption to the Innings of the Team Batting First
18.5.2.1 If the number of overs of the team batting first is reduced, a fixed time will be specified for the completion of its innings, as calculated by applying the provisions of 18.6.1 above. In the event of its innings being completed prior to the scheduled time, the interval shall take place immediately and the innings of the team batting second will commence correspondingly earlier.
18.5.2.2 The object shall always be to rearrange the number of overs so that, if possible, both teams have the opportunity of batting for the same number of overs.
18.5.3 Delay or interruption to the Innings of the Team Batting Second
18.5.3.1 If there is a delay or interruption to the innings of the team batting second, the revised number of overs to be bowled in the innings shall be based on a rate of 3.75 minutes per over in the total remaining time available for play. When the innings of the team batting first has been completed prior to the scheduled or rescheduled time for the interval between innings, the reduction of overs will not commence until, in the case of a delay, an amount of time equivalent to that which the first innings finished early has elapsed, or in the case of an interruption, an amount of time equivalent to that by which the second innings started early has elapsed.
18.5.3.2 A rescheduled cessation time should be re-calculated for the second innings, based on a rate of 3.75 minutes per over.
18.5.3.3 The re-calculated number of overs will be the minimum number that ensures that the rescheduled cessation time is no earlier than the original cessation time.
18.5.4 Completion of Interrupted Matches (DL Method)
18.5.4.1 If, due to suspension of play after the start of the match, the number of overs in the innings of either team has to be revised to a lesser number than that originally allotted (minimum 6 overs), then a revised target score should be set for the number of overs which the team batting second will have the opportunity of facing. This will be calculated on the DL system as set out in Rule 12.
   
18.6    The Result       
18.6.1 When there is no interruption after play has commenced and when both sides have had the opportunity of batting for the same agreed number of overs, the team scoring the higher number of runs shall be the winner. In the event of a match ending with level scores, the following shall apply:
18.6.1.1 In a Pool Stage match, no account shall be taken of wickets lost, the match is tied and each team shall be awarded one point.
18.6.1.2 In a Semi-final or Final, the team losing the fewer wickets shall be the winner.
18.6.1.3 In a Semi-final or Final, if the result cannot be decided by 18.7.1, 18.7.1.2 or 18.6.3.1, the winner shall be the team with the higher    score after 6 overs, or if still equal after 5 overs, or if still equal after 4 overs etc; if those scores are equal at the end of each of the first six overs the match shall be regarded as a Tie and be decided by the provisions of Rule 17.1.17.3 (Super Over).
18.6.2 No Result Final: In the event of a Tie or of conditions of ground, weather or light rendering it impossible to play a match of the minimum of 6 overs per side being in the Final and circumstances do not allow a Super Over to take place, the Trophy will be shared.
   
18.7 Finals Day
18.7.1 The scheduled start times shall be as follows:

1st Semi-final….. 10.30am  2nd Semi-final 1.30pm.  Final 4.30pm

(or 30 minutes after 2nd SF ends, whichever is the later).

18.7.2 The CCL Matchday Supervisor will, in conjunction with the Umpires, determine the re-arrangement of overs and timings of matches in the case of any match being delayed or interrupted. The objectives shall be prioritized as follows:

(i) to ensure wherever possible a 20 overs per side Final and a minimum of 10 overs per side in each Semi-final;

(ii) to ensure that, wherever possible, both semi-finals are of the same duration.

(iii) to ensure that, wherever possible, within each match, each team has the opportunity to bat for the same number of overs.  In making their judgements, the officials will need to take into account the amount of play that may already have taken place, the amount of playing time remaining, and the most accurate weather forecast.

18.7.3 If there is a delayed start or one or more interruptions in play, the officials may order up to 30 minutes of extra time either at the break between the first and second semi-final and/or between the second semi-final and the final and readjust the timings for matches as appropriate.
18.7.4 If it is not possible for the first Semi-final to start by 1.00pm then a Reserve Day shall be used
