The referee must centre a full game to avoid bias. **It is hoped official centre referees will be outsourced.

  • 2 points for a draw and
  • 1 point for a loss
  • Forfeit will receive 0 points.

In the event that at the end of the round robin 2 or more teams have the same points then the goal difference will be use to discriminate. If this number is the same then the team scoring the most goals will be declared the winner. If this is still the same a count back on games won/loss/draw will be used. If this is equal the winner of the head to head game between the two sides will be declared the winner. If this is still the same the winner will be decided on the toss of a coin.

Late arrival. Any team that is not on the playing field ready to play within 5 minutes of the starting hooter will (on request from opposition) receive a forfeit. In the event of this happening 4 points and three goals will be awarded to the no offending team.

A two pool system will run for each age group. Each team in both pools will play four pool games. There will be cross over semi finals for teams first and second in each pool and playoff games for 3/4 placings, 5/6 placings and 7/8 placings. Please see draw for details

INFORMATION & RULES

Super 8's Competition Format

RULE CHANGE:  batters retire at 25 (happy to push this to 30 if that's the consensus), teams are to rotate the batting order between games

● Each team is to provide a scorer & umpire for each game. Students can score but not umpire.
● Direct changeover of innings and move quickly to the next game. Move to the ground before the start time.
● 10 step run-up maximum. Next batter is 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.

● 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.

Schools are reminded to observe any guidelines set out in the rules and to keep the venue tidy.
