Indoor Cricket League Rules


General
Matches are six/seven/eight players a side, ten/twelve/fourteen overs per innings.
Bowlers each bowl a maximum of two overs.
All bowling is from one end, at the end of an over, the batters change ends.
The wicketkeeper does not bowl, the wicketkeeper may only be changed during the match if they are injured whilst playing.
On the fall of the 5th/6th/7th wicket, “last man standing” applies,  the batter who is out goes to the non-striker’s end to play as a runner only; the last remaining not out batter faces all deliveries. If the runner is run out, that is the final wicket and the innings is over.
Batters 1 and/or 2 must retire at the end of the 4th over if batters 3 and/or 4 have yet to bat.
Batters 3 and/or 4 must retire at the end of the 8th over if batters 5 and/or 6 have yet to bat.
(12 over match only)  Batter 5 must retire at the end of the 10th over if batter 7 has yet to bat.
(14 over match only)  Batters 5 and/or 6 must retire at the end of the 12th over if batters 7 and/or 8 have yet to bat.
All players must have a turn of at least one of: batting, bowling or wicketkeeping. If the side batting first is dismissed before all bowlers have bowled, then when it is their turn to bat, the bowlers who did not get a bowl must bat first.
The second innings in a match continues until all wickets fall or the overs are complete, whichever comes first, regardless of match result, because in the event of a tie on matches won, points scored will decide league positions.
Batters also retire on passing 25 points (or 50 if they do really well), retired batsmen may bat again once all in their side have batted. Once they have passed 50, batters may not face any more deliveries, they may continue as a runner only.
No balls or wides are not bowled again, except the final over of an innings, which must contain six good deliveries. If the umpire suspects a wide or no-ball is deliberate, e.g. to keep a strong batsman off strike, it must be bowled again.
A delivery which bounces more than twice before it reaches the batsman is a no ball, but “technical” no balls will only be given if the bowler gains an unfair advantage. E.g. only a fast bowler will be penalised for “throwing” or overstepping the line.
All bowlers must initially bowl overarm, the umpires may instruct a bowler to bowl underam or bowl from closer to the batter if they feel the bowler cannot bowl fair overarm deliveries.
No LBWs unless the umpire feels the batsman is deliberately using their leg(s) to defend their wicket and has not tried to hit the hall.
Batsmen can be out caught off a wall or ceiling as long as the ball has not struck the floor or become lodged in a net or other gym equipment.
If a side is short of players, the lowest scoring batter gets an extra innings, each captain picks one bowler to bowl an extra over.
Scoring
Two points are scored for every run that is physically run.
If the ball hits the wall behind the bowler, a boundary is scored. Four points are scored if the ball touched the ground first, six points if the ball does not touch the ground first.
If the ball hits any other wall, one point is scored per wall.
Scoring is cumulative, e.g. if a batsman hits the ball against a wall and runs, they score points for both hitting the wall and for the runs that have been run.
The batting side scores two points for a wide or no ball.


Umpires may award the batting side 5 runs if they feel the bowling team has deliberately not taken a wicket, e.g. not tried to take a catch, in order to prevent a retired batter returning.

NYACC League Coaching Courses

The NYACC League runs league teams who play inter-league cricket at various age groups, they have been asking for nominations for the coaching courses they run to feed these teams.

Better club players are suitable for this coaching, but I believe those who have played County age group level cricket that season are not allowed to play inter league cricket.

These courses are for the teams that will be run next season, so to be in the U11 team you need to be in year 5 or 6 now, for the under 13 team you need to be in year 8 now. 

Details of when the courses will run are below, the catch is that you have to pay !

All Courses are to be held at Longfield  School Darlington

Pre Christmas
NYACC U11’s. Start Date - Monday 6th November. Duration – 5 weeks. Time – 5.30-7.30 Cost - £40.

Post Christmas
   NYACC U12’s. Start Date – Monday 8 January. Duration – 5 weeks. Time – 5.30 – 7.30.
NYACC U13’s. Start Date - Tuesday 9 January. Duration 5 weeks. Time - 5.30 - 7.30.

2017 Indoor League

The Indoor League will start on Friday 3rd November, matches will be played in the Sports Hall at Richmond School.

There will be matches starting at 7.00pm and 8.00 pm, with the younger players playing first.

The games will be suitable for players from years 2 to 10 inclusive, depending on numbers there may well be an opportunity for some players in the middle of the age range to play in both divisions. The only stipulation on ability is that players need to be able to bowl overarm.

Within the junior division I am keen to see  a number of teams with at least a couple of girls, I think there is sufficient talent within our girl membership in this age range.

The rules will ensure that all players get to bat and bowl (except keeper). Games will be played with an Incrediball (or unbranded equivalent) which has a soft core.

Players will be assigned to teams, teams will have weeks off when they do not have a game.

Entries will officially open at the Presentation Evening on 6th October, if you cannot make the Presnetation Evening, there will be a link created on the blog very soon afterwards.

Junior Presentation Evening Friday 6th October

The Junior Presentation Evening will take place at the clubhouse on Friday 6th October, starting at 7.00pm with free food in the form of nuggets/sausages/chips or similar.

Awards up to and including the under 15 age group awards will be presented, the under 17 awards will be presented at the Senior Presentation Evening on 28th October.

On this evening, entries for the Indoor League will open, places will be assigned on a first come first served basis.

If you are the holder of a trophy from last year and have not returned it, could you please return it to either your Team Manager or the clubhouse. (Under 9 awards are perpetual and do not need to be returned).

End of season sale at Lorimers

From Matthew Cowling at Lorimers:

As you are aware the season is coming to an end, however at Lorimers this is when we clear a lot of our stock to make way for next seasons kit. 

There are huge deals on at the moment with up to 60% off 2017 stock in store and on our eBay store online. 

Also, please find attached images of the Lorimers Richmondshire CC duffle wheelie bag. As the title suggests it's a standing duffle bag with carry straps as well as wheels to pull along for the lazier ones (inc myself). These are very reasonably priced at £45 (similar bags on the market are up at £60-£80). They are big for adult use but not over sized enough to not fit in most car boots or on most junior cricketer's backs! Please contact me via email (matthewtcowling@sky.com) if you wish to purchase one or have any other queries regarding clearance cricket equipment or next years stock. 

The Richmond team clothing will be continue to be sold online at www.lorimers4cricket.co.uk
