State of Play, Day 2 update for Senior Cricket

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

 

With the large majority of matches on Day 1 of this round finishing early due to the weather, The DVCA would like to remind all clubs of rule S19 (section 4) and provide some examples of situations for this weekend in order for clubs to get results this weekend.

4. Compulsory Closure of each team’s 1st innings:

  • Team 1 closes upon completion of the Daily Overs.

  • If Team 1 compulsorily closes, Team 2 closes after the same number of balls.

  • In the event of lost time exceeding 20 minutes through Adverse Conditions and the daily overs not being bowled by the scheduled close of play (6.00pm ‘E’ and above and 5.30pm ‘F1’ and below), play will cease and compulsory closure conditions will not apply.

However:

Team 1 may continue batting on Day 2 only until their daily overs are reached.

Team 1 may elect to declare on Day 2 and split the overs, whereby Team 2 compulsorily closes after receiving the same number of balls.

Note - If team batting 2nd commences batting on Day 1 and bats a further 80 overs (68 overs F1 and below) on Day 2, without reaching their target, then they lose.

Below are some examples for 80 over games and also 68 game scenarios in order to get a result:

80 Over game

Example 1: End of Day 1. Team 1 are currently 4/150 from 45.2 overs. If Team 1 elects to continue batting on Day 2, they are entitled to complete their 80 overs. Their first over on Day 2, will be completed after 4 balls. This will leave 79 overs on Day 2. If Team 1 elect to declare on Day 2 and split the overs they must declare after 62 overs thus leaving Team 2 63 overs to pass their score. (46 overs + 79 overs = 125 overs). Should Team 1 elect to bat beyond 62 overs they must then bowl Team 2 out to achieve a win otherwise, the match will be draw unless Team 2 passes Team 1 which will result in a win to Team 2. At the completion of the match it is also important that umpire/s sign off on the result in the score book.

Example 2: End of Day 1. Team 1 are currently 7/128 off 50.4 overs. If Team 1 elects to continue batting on Day 2, they are entitled to complete their 80 overs. Their first over on Day 2, will be completed after 2 balls. This will leave 79 overs on Day 2. If Team 1 elect to declare on Day 2 and split the overs they must declare after 65 overs thus leaving Team 2 65 overs to pass their score. (51 overs + 79 overs = 130 overs). Should Team 1 elect to bat beyond 65 overs they must then bowl Team 2 out to achieve a win otherwise, the match will be draw unless Team 2 passes Team 1 which will result in a win to Team 2. At the completion of the match it is also important that umpire/s sign off on the result in the score book.


68 Over game

Example 1: End of Day 1. Team 1 are currently 6/120 from 56 overs. If Team 1 elects to continue batting on Day 2, they are entitled to complete their 68 overs. If Team 1 elect to declare on Day 2 and split the overs they must declare after 62 overs thus leaving Team 2 62 overs to pass their score. (62 overs + 62 overs = 124 overs). Should Team 1 elect to bat beyond 62 overs they must then bowl Team 2 out to achieve a win otherwise, the match will be draw unless Team 2 passes Team 1 which will result in a win to Team 2. At the completion of the match it is also important that captains (if no umpire present) and umpire/s sign off on the result in the score book.

Example 2: End of Day 1. Team 1 are currently 5/200 from 55.5 overs. If Team 1 elects to continue batting on Day 2, they are entitled to complete their 68 overs. Their first over on Day 2, will be completed after 1 ball. This will leave 67 overs on Day 2. If Team 1 elect to declare on Day 2 and split the overs they must declare after 61 overs thus leaving Team 2 62 overs to pass their score. (61 overs + 62 overs = 123 overs). Should Team 1 elect to bat beyond 61 overs they must then bowl Team 2 out to achieve a win otherwise, the match will be draw unless Team 2 passes Team 1 which will result in a win to Team 2. At the completion of the match it is also important that captains (if no umpire present) and umpire/s sign off on the result in the score book.
