WEATHER FORECAST - IMPORTANT REMINDERS
Given the weather forecast for Sunday, ACL Team will inspect grounds by 7 am and may decide to call it as a "Wash out" if ground conditions are not playable and all matches will be rescheduled. If it is not an entire wash out, there is a possibility that the start time for your games may be delayed or rain may interrupt ongoing matches.
Considering this possibility, your specific attention is drawn to the following ACL Rules -
- 3.2.10. In case of a delayed start, the umpire and both the captains should agree to the start time of the game and the number of overs to be bowled per innings. If it is reserved field then the reservation time needs to be considered. The maximum overs per inning cannot be modified once the game has started.
- 3.4.2. The regular game will be played for 15 overs per innings. The first innings will consist of maximum allotted overs of 15 and minimum of 8. For rain-delayed start, the number of overs will be reduced to account for lost time. For example: for a 10-minute delayed start, the match will consist of 14 overs per innings.
- 126.96.36.199. Umpires will decide the starting time of the game based on the playing conditions and ground availability.
Umpires and Captains have to ensure that if the field is in playable condition then the game has to start at 8.30 AM or 11.30 AM, as applicable. If both the Captains are willing to start the game, the Umpires should forthwith commence the game. In case of a delayed start, the number of overs should be curtailed per the guidance provided by Rule 3.4.2. Strict adherence to this Rule is requested.
Games starting at 8.30 AM have to be completed by 11.30 AM. Games starting at 11.30 AM have to be completed by 2.30 PM. Teams are not allowed to reschedule games to a later time to complete the match. Once a game has started, the pitch area should not be moved because of soggy and muddy conditions, unless, both the Captains have pre-agreed and reached an understanding before the start of the game. Under all circumstances, the ground category for a game should be maintained throughout the game. ACL does not encourage playing on grass pitches.
If it is NOT an entire "Wash out" this weekend, Teams will split the points, in case a particular match is cancelled or not completed due to rain. Umpires should communicate and record all delayed starts and the reduced number overs with the respective Division Weekend Coordinator via email before the game commences.
All the best for your weekend game !
