INTERRUPTION DUE TO RAIN – “A” Grade & “Ladies” Grade
The side batting first in “A” Grade & “Ladies” Grade must complete their allotted overs and the side batting second must complete a minimum of ten (10) overs, otherwise a significant rain event or washout will be declared.
The ten (10) over mark of the side batting second will then constitute a game.  The run rate of the batting team at the end of the last COMPLETED over at the time of interruption will be used to calculate:

  • The batting sides overall total for incentive points purposes; and
  • To decide the winner of the match.

Only the incentive points obtained by the bowling team at the point of the rain interruption will apply.
NB:  Scorers are to circle the score on the progressive score sheet at the completion of the first ten (10) overs in all grades.
If both captains agree and approved by the Disputes Committee, on certain fields, if weather conditions and the condition of the grounds warrant the same, bowlers may bowl from one end only, with the batsmen changing ends at the completion of each over.

 

INTERRUPTION DUE TO RAIN – “B1” Grade;  “B2” Grade; “Social” Grade
The side batting first in “B1” Grade, “B2” Grade & “Social” Grade must complete their allotted overs and the side batting second must complete a minimum of twenty (20) overs, otherwise a significant rain event or washout will be declared.
The twenty (20) over mark of the side batting second will then constitute a game.  The run rate of the batting team at the end of the last COMPLETED over at the time of interruption will be used to calculate:

  • The batting sides overall total for incentive points purposes; and
  • To decide the winner of the match.

Only the incentive points obtained by the bowling team at the point of the rain interruption will apply.
NB:  Scorers are to circle the score on the progressive score sheet at the completion of the first twenty (20) overs in all grades.
If both captains agree and approved by the Disputes Committee, on certain fields, if weather conditions and the condition of the grounds warrant the same, bowlers may bowl from one end only, with the batsmen changing ends at the completion of each over.

 

IN THE EVENT OF A SIGNIFICANT RAIN EVENT/WASH-OUT
In the event of heavy overnight rain, an inspection of the playing fields will be conducted by the Carnival Disputes Committee.  Where it is deemed a significant number of fields are unfit for play, changed playing conditions will be declared by 7:00am on the morning of play and a revised draw will be introduced where all games will be declared Twenty20 fixtures for that day’s play only.  Games will be at intervals of 9:00am to 12:30pm and 12:30pm to 4:00pm.
This draw will not alter the teams to play but will alter the field and times of the scheduled game.  A team scheduled to play in the afternoon game may therefore be required to play the first game of the day at 9:00am.
The rescheduled draw will be available from the Committee Office following the declaration of the significant rain event.

 

SCORESHEETS
All scoresheets are to be picked up from the Committee Office before 8:00am each day and handed in to the Committee Office immediately after the completion of each day’s play.
Team captains are requested to ensure that all scores are recorded neatly and correctly for the purpose of compiling averages.
Any team failing to carry these instructions out will automatically be disregarded in so far as averages are concerned.
This is a very big job and is usually handled by two or three people, so please co-operate to give them a chance to keep the averages up to date.

 

POINTS
Win = 3 points, Tie – 3 points per team
Loss = 0 points
Washout = 3 points per team, plus incentive points at time of washout
If a game is completely washed out, or if a team forfeits, the team shall be allotted the average of their points for games completed during the carnival.
In addition to the above points, in all Grades, with the exception of “A” Grade incentive points will be added as follows:-
.01 of point for every run scored                   and
.2 of a point for each wicket taken.
“A” Grade placings for play-off positions will be decided on win points and then “Net Run Rate”.  Charters Towers will receive win points for their second bye.

 

SCHOOLS AND COLLEGE GROUNDS
The Charters Towers Cricket Association stresses the following rules for teams drawn to play on school and college fields.  Vehicles to be parked ONLY In the approved parking areas.

  • Vehicles not to be driven off designated roadways.
  • Speed limitations must be strictly adhered to
  • No undue vehicle noise will be tolerated
  • Please use bins provided at each field for rubbish disposal
  • DEFINITELYNo alcohol allowed on any of these grounds.
  • CAPTAINS – Please endeavour to see that these rules are strictly adhered to at these grounds.

CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL
All players are reminded that alcohol is not to be taken on the field of play at ANY of the grounds.  This rule applies especially to players acting as umpires.  Any team reported breaching this rule will not be invited to play in future carnivals.

 

ELIGIBILITY
The Goldfield Ashes Committee of the Charters Towers Cricket Association wishes to make it clear to all teams in ALL grades that persons under the age of 14 years are NOT eligible to play.  This rule will be strictly enforced this year.  All Players participating in the Carnival, in ALL GRADES do so at their own risk.

 

CLEANLINESS OF GROUNDS AT COMPLETION OF GAMES
All grounds should be left free of litter following the completion of each game.  All rubbish should be disposed of in the bins provided.
Teams playing in the Ladies competition should also ensure all toilet facilities are checked and kept clean and tidy.
Captains will be held responsible for any reports of leaving their respective fields in an unacceptable manner.  Both captains should therefore agree at the completion of play that their respective areas are free of rubbish and toilets have been left clean.

Any decision by the disputes committee on any matter during the carnival shall be final and binding.
