Coaches Entering Field of Play (All Grades and Formats)

 

Captains of teams through all CTPL grades are responsible for upholding the spirit of cricket and throughout the course of the match managing their team and their performance. Allowing the captain to do this themselves throughout a match helps develop the skills required of them.

 

Except when necessary (ie in the event of an injured player) and at scheduled drinks breaks only, coaches are not permitted to enter the field of play. In the event a coach does enter the field of play during a scheduled drinks break, they should only address players from their club and comply with all instructions from umpires respectively. Coaches are also not permitted to be coaching players from the sidelines. All CTPL coaches are bound by the CTPL Code of Behaviour and the Coach’s Code of Conduct (Appendix I of the By-Laws & Playing Conditions).

 

 

Player Eligibility - Women's Competition's (1st and 2nd Grade)

 


 Women’s 2nd Grade Competition

  1. Clubs can submit a dispensation request to the Premier League Manager (simply involving the Players Name, Date of Birth, MyCricket ID and Player Statistics) to allow players over the age of 18 years of age as at the 31st August to double up in Women’s 1st and 2nd Grade in the same round/weekend.
  2. Clubs are permitted to play a maximum of three (3) players who have also played Women’s 1st Grade on the same round/weekend. Dispensation requests must be granted for these players to participate as per 12(1)(d)(i). Dispensation requests must be submitted to CT no later than 12noon Friday prior to the commencement of the match
  3. With respect to 12(1)(b), where a club has a bye/not playing in Women's 1st Grade, clubs are permitted a maximum of two (2) players in Women's 2nd Grade where have played more than 60% of their matches in a higher grade. Players will only be permitted to play in the grade immediate below the lowest grade that they have previously participated in.


Where Women’s 1st Grade are not playing and 2nd Grade are playing

  • 60% rule applies as per By-Law 12(1)(b) (if you have played more in a higher grade, ineligible to play in a lower grade), however clubs/players will be permitted to allow a maximum of two (2) players in a lower grade if they have played more than 60% in higher grade (no dispensation required).
  • U/18 Players (as at 31st August) are exempt from the 60% rule, thus eligible to participate in Women's 2nd Grade if they have played more than 60% in a higher grade

 

Doubling Up (Playing two grades on same weekend/round)

  • Players over the age of 18 are ineligible to play in multiple grades on the same weekend/round, however, Clubs can submit a dispensation request to CT to allow players over 18 to double up in Women’s 1st and 2nd Grade in the same round/weekend. 
  • If granted, clubs are permitted to play a maximum of three (3) players who have also played Women’s 1st Grade on the same round/weekend.
  • Dispensation requests must be made to CT by 12noon Friday before the commencement of that round. 
  • U/18 Players are exempt from this, thus eligible in both grades on the same round/weekend.

 

Example/s 

  • Where both 1st and 2nd Grade are playing on the same weekend (If not granted dispensation to double up), Player A (who is over 18) can either play for New Town 1st Grade or University 2nd Grade (as she is over 18)
  • Where 1st Grade have BYE/not playing, Player A is permitted to play for Kingborough in 2nd Grade (as per rule where clubs can have maximum of two players in a lower grade who have played more than 60%)
  • With the changes to the Women’s competitions, Player A (or any other player) cannot compete for multiple clubs within the same grade during the season (i.e. play for University and New Town in 2nd Grade).



 

Women's 2nd Grade Playing Conditions

 

118.2 (Other Fielding Restriction Overs)

 

In addition to PC 118.1, further fielding restrictions shall apply to certain overs in each innings. The nature of such fielding restrictions and the overs during which they shall apply (hereinafter referred to as the Fielding Restriction Overs (FROs)) are set out in the following paragraphs.

 

Two semicircles shall be drawn on the field of play. The semicircles shall have as their centre the middle stump at either end of the pitch. The radius of each of the semicircles shall be 25.15 yards (23 metres). The semicircles shall be linked by two parallel straight lines drawn on the field. The fielding restriction areas should be marked by continuous painted white lines or ‘dots’ at 5 yard (4.57 metres) intervals, each ‘dot’ to be covered by white plastic or rubber (but not metal) disc measuring 7 inches (18 cm) in diameter.

 

(1)       For the first 6 overs only of each innings, only two fielders are permitted to be outside the fielding restriction circle.

(2)       For the remaining overs of each innings only four fielders are permitted to be outside the fielding circle at the instant of delivery.

 

118.3   Fielding Restrictions for Team Batting First

 

In circumstances where the number of overs for the team batting first is reduced, the number of overs in regard to the restrictions in PC 118.2(1) above shall be reduced proportionately in a ratio of 6:20 (30%) in accordance with the table below for that innings only.

 

Fractions are to be ignored in all calculations re the number of overs. (If on resumption the number of overs for fielding restrictions has already been exceeded this should take effect immediately)

 

Total overs in innings

118.4   Fielding Restrictions for Team Batting Second

 

Where the number of overs for the team batting second is reduced the aim will be to maintain the restrictions in PC 118.2(1) for the same proportion of the second innings that they were maintained for the first innings (fractions to be ignored).

 

 Rationale: Error in By-Laws. Women's 2nd Grade T20 PC's should replicate Women's 1st Grade PC's.
