PLAYING SET – 11 PLAYERS
MAX. PLAYERS – 16 PLAYERS
Cricket ball (Davidson or NS or SG) should be arranged by the host institute and others teams have to pay for it.
1. A runner for a batsman when injured, subject to the satisfaction of umpire, will be permitted from playing XI
2. Each team will start its inning with new ball. In the event of a ball during play being lost or in the opinion of the umpires, being unfit for play through normal use, the umpires shall allow it to be replaced by one that in their opinion has had a similar amount of wear.
3. In the event of the ball becoming wet and soggy as a result of play continuing in inclement weather or it being affected by dew, or a white ball becoming significantly discolored and in the opinion of the umpires being unfit for play, the ball may be replaced for a ball that has similar amount of wear, even though it has not gone out of shape.
4. If the ball is to be replaced, the umpire shall inform the batsmen and the fielding captain.
Either batsman or bowler may raise the matter with the umpires and the umpires’ decision as to a replacement or otherwise will be final.
5. All matches will consist of one innings per side, each innings being limited to a maximum of 20 overs. All matches shall be of scheduled duration of 90 minutes per inning per side.
6. If the team fielding first fails to bowl the required number of overs by the scheduled time for cessation of the first innings, play shall continue until the required number of overs has been bowled. The interval shall not be extended and the second session shall commence at the schedule time. The team batting second shall receive its full quota of 20 overs irrespective of the number of overs it bowled in the scheduled time for the cessation of the first innings.
7. If the team batting first is dismissed in less than 20 overs, the team batting second shall be entitled to bat for 20 overs.
8. If the team fielding second fails to bowl 20 overs by the scheduled cessation time, the hours of play shall be extended until the required number of overs has been bowled or a result is achieved.
9. Penalties shall apply for slow over rates as per the existing 20-20 rules.
10. No bowler shall bowl more than 4 overs in an innings.
11. In a delayed or interrupted match where the overs are reduced for both teams or for the team bowling second, no bowler may bowl more than one-fifth of the total overs allowed.
12. Where the total over is not divisible by 5, one additional over shall be allowed to the maximum number per bowler necessary to make up the balance.
13. In the event of a bowler breaking down and being unable to complete an over, the remaining balls will be allowed by another bowler. Such part of an over will count as a full over only in so far as each bowler’s limit is concerned.
14. If the scores are equal, the result will be a tie and no account shall be taken of the number of wickets which have fallen. In the event of a tied match the teams shall compete in a Super Over to determine the winner.
15. The bowler may not deliver the ball underarm. If a bowler bowls a ball underarm the umpire shall call and signal no ball, and the ball is to be re-bowled over arm.
16. In addition to the above, the delivery following a no ball called for a foot fault shall be a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it. If the delivery for the free hit is not a legitimate delivery (any kind of no ball or a wide ball), then the next delivery will become a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it.
17. For any free hit, the striker can be dismissed only under the circumstances that apply for a no ball, even if the delivery for the free hit is called wide ball.
18. Field changes are not permitted for free hit deliveries unless there is a change of striker.
19. The umpires will signal a free hit by (after the normal No Ball signal) extending one arm straight upwards and moving it in a circular motion.
20. If bowler is substituted, he will be allowed to ball after his return to the field for the time period equivalent to his off the field time.
21. Net Run Rate = (Total Runs Scored ÷ Total Overs Faced) – (Total Runs Conceded ÷ Total Overs Bowled)
• “Total Runs Scored” is the number of runs scored by the team (it is also the number of runs conceded by the opposing team).
• “Total Overs Faced” is the number of overs faced by the team (it is also the number of overs bowled by the opposing team).
• “Total Runs Conceded” is the number of runs conceded by the team (it is also the number of runs scored by the opposing team).
• “Total Overs Bowled” is the number of overs bowled by the team (it is also the number of overs faced by the opposing team).
• Net Run Rate can be calculated for a match or a tournament.
