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).

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
No. of overs for which fielding restrictions in PC 118.2 above will apply
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.
