Super 8's Competition Format

It is strongly recommended that schools bring a parent volunteer to umpire to assist teachers/coaches on the day. This will be at the discretion of each school, but the volunteer must be competent and impartial. Students can score but not umpire. All schools MUST have an umpire for each game.

  • Direct change over of innings and move quickly to next game. Move to the ground before the start time.
  • 10 step run-up maximum. Next batter in to stand at square leg. Wicket keepers MUST wear a helmet.
  • Once a result is determined the game immediately ends. Move on to the next game!
  • After each game please send a runner to the convenor with the score sheet.
  • Note that each game will impact on final standings. i.e. runs scored, wickets lost.
  • Each team is to provide a scorer & umpire for each game. Students can score but not umpire.
  • Max. of 10 players nominated per team.
  • 6 overs per innings. 
  • A USED two piece leather ball is to be supplied by each team.
  • Games may need to be adjusted to remain on time for the day if we are running behind; all teams that qualify for the finals are to stay to compete in them;
  • No team is to have a red or maroon shirt - it is too hard to pick the ball up without a sight screen and therefore a major safety issue. (ERC and Corpus please note – students can play in a white cricket shirt.)
  • All teams are to bring their own shade tent and ensure that each batsman and the keeper wears a helmet and appropriate protection gear at all times.

We hope you enjoy the day.
