RULE CHANGE EXCLUSIVELY FOR DIVISION 1
The first 3 overs of Division 1 Championship games are power play overs. A maximum of 2 fielders are allowed to field outside the 80 feet circle (drawn from the center point, 33 feet, between wickets) during the power play overs. During the 4th to 15th over, the fielding team has to keep a minimum of 2 players inside the 80 feet circle. This rule change applies only to Division 1 and does not apply to Division 2 and Division 3 games. Division 1 Captains are requested to carry adequate flat markers (20 are recommended) for setting the inner circle.
RULE CHANGE FOR DIVISION 1, 2 AND 3
The wide markers should be measured at 36 inches (3 feet) from the middle stump of the batting wicket. The bowling side lines should be 48 inches (4 feet) from the outside stumps of the bowling wicket. The batting and bowling crease should be 48 inches (4 feet) from the batting and bowling wickets. THE USE OF BAT LENGTHS FOR SETTING WIDE MARKS AND CREASE IS EFFECTIVELY DISCONTINUED. CAPTAINS AND UMPIRES ARE REQUESTED TO TAKE NOTE OF THIS.
The drinks break within an inning should be taken at the end of 8 overs (and not 10 overs).
