LATEST NEWS - END OF SEASON

Hi All,

Let's hope for a incident free end to the season.

Many thanks.

Cheers Brian.


Brian Smith
Fixture Secretary - Kent Regional Cricket League

LATEST NEWS - MID SEASON UPDATE

Evening All,
 
Apologies for the delay in sending out the 'Latest News' on behalf of the KRCL, but for a number of reasons, I have not had time.
 
With the wet weather to date, England's demise in the Euro championships and with a number of teams resigning throughout the season, this has certainly been a season to forget.
 
Disappointingly, two trends have seemed to remain unchanged over the last 10 weeks;
 
* Declining standards of behaviour both on and off the pitch
* Admin Incompetence !
 
Can you please remind all players, captains and officials of the spirit of cricket, the laws of the game, and most importantly the playing conditions of the KRCL. If you are in any doubt over a rule or decision, then please consult the KRCL Handbook. It is produced for a reason !! I would expect Captains and Umpires to resolve issues on match days. Please discuss any anomalies at the toss, so that everyone is aware of such arrangements.
 
With regards to Admin, this appears to be getting worse in many clubs across the county. Apologies to the few who are on top of the game - your diligence and support is appreciated.

A few reminders to assist with Admin;
 
* Load your team in advance of the fixture. This will ensure wrong players are not selected from the database. It will also highlight any registration issues !!
* Input Summary Result by 12 noon on Sunday
* Input Full Scorecard by 12 noon on Tuesday
* Please ensure bonus points are completed correctly. If in doubt - check the KRCL Handbook
* Abandoned fixtures - if the game is started and not completed - then full details still need to be loaded. The 'stats' still count.
 
If a scorecard hasn't been locked by Tuesday evening - then think why? There will be a mistake that needs to be edited. Please action accordingly.
 
If you receive an email query from me - then I expect a timely response. Please treat as URGENT.
 
In the event of a scorecard being locked early, then please contact me directly by email, so that it can be unlocked. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE FACILITY ON PLAY CRICKET. You are wasting your time and my time.
 
Whilst I have your attention - can I also take this opportunity to remind clubs of the deadline of registering new players - 31ST JULY !!
 
For ease of reference, I attach a copy of the KRCL Constitution and the KRCL Playing Conditions. Please familiarise yourself with any specific playing conditions that you are not aware of. If in any doubt, refer to the Laws of Cricket.
 
The KRCL Committee is in the process of finalising the dates for the Presentation Evenings and the AGM. I will pass this on at the end of this month, when I will be reminding you of the early starts for matches at the end of the season.
 
I would expect to see a marked improvement over the coming weeks, otherwise you might be looking for a new League Administrator for next season.

If you have any questions, or concerns, then please feel free to contact me directly. 
 
Many thanks.
 
Cheers Brian.
 


Hi All,
 
Apologies for not having sent a message recently.
 
You have kept me too busy with your registration requests !!
 
I have received a number of recent enquiries - so hopefully the reminders as below will help your Club Admin.
 
Please ensure that this message is passed to Club Administrators, Captains and Results Administrators.
 
Over the next 17 weeks, I really don't want to spend any additional time sorting out 'mistakes'.
 
Many thanks.
 
Cheers Brian.

START TIMES


Please note that all matches start at 1.30pm, with the exception of those at the end of the season – I will send a reminder nearer the time.


In the event that both teams have agreed in advance, then matches can start up to an hour earlier.


 


BALLS


Each Team to provide one ball per match.


A new ball MUST be used at the start of each innings.


 


TEAS


The maximum charge for cricket teas is £45.


 


80 OVER MATCHES


There appears to be some confusion over which divisions are playing the shortened format this season. I find this amazing, especially as it was agreed at the AGM and subsequently was showing on the Divisional Structure which was distributed at the start of the year.


In summary, with the exception of the Divisions as listed below – all other divisions are playing the 80 over format. The 92 over format only applies in the following divisions;


Premier


Championship – West


Championship – East


2A West


2A East


In the event that both teams agree at the toss, then fixtures in these divisions can be reduced to 40 overs as per the KRCL playing conditions.


 


RESULTS & SCORECARDS


Please ensure that Summary Results are posted on the website before 12 NOON on the Sunday.


Please ensure that Full Scorecards are posted on the website before 12 NOON on the Tuesday.


It is imperative that all details are accurate. Scorecards will be locked as soon as they have been checked, and everything appears to add up.


If there are UNSURE players in a scorecard – please resolve immediately. Don’t wait until you get a reminder email from me.


It is the responsibility of the home team to post the result and scorecard. It is the responsibility of the away team to ensure the details are correct. Please action as necessary.


 


POINTS SCORING


Incredibly, one in 3 scorecards as checked last week, had the wrong points allocated to either the winning team or the losing team. This really isn’t difficult, so please can we make more of an effort to get this right in the coming weeks.


 In Summary;


Winning Team


15 points automatically entered from result. Enter bowling points as necessary.


Losing Team


Enter All bonus points. That is bowling points + Losing points.


For the break-down of losing points – please refer to Page 95 of the KRCL Handbook.


For ease of reference, this is also listed at the bottom of this reminder. I also enclose a couple of examples as below.


In the event of a match being Abandoned / Cancelled / Conceded – all you need to do is enter the result. All points will be entered automatically.


In a tied match, all you need to do is enter the bowling bonus points for each team.


It will also help if you update who won the toss, and who batted first on the summary page of the scorecard.


In the event of a team not having a full complement of 11 players – then please make a note in the highlights section. This will help when knowing when teams are All Out, and the awarding of the correct number of bowling points.


Please also ensure that the overs actually bowled (in both innings) is recorded correctly.


Example 1


Sidcup 174 – 6 (40 overs)


Bexley 175 – 7 (36.3 overs)


Sidcup = 7 (Losing – 7 wickets) + 3 (Bowling) = 10 [Enter – Bonus Points = 10]


Bexley = 15 + 3 = 18 [Enter – Bonus Points = 3]


Example 2


Sidcup 203 – 9 (38.4 overs)


Bexley 178 – 8 (41 overs)


Sidcup = 15 + 4 = 19 [Enter – Bonus Points = 4]


Bexley = 7 (Losing – 25 runs) + 5 (Bowling) = 12 [Enter – Bonus Points = 12]


Please note that in this example – Sidcup only had 10 players, thus all out. Full bowling points awarded to Bexley. Bexley receive additional over, balance of 80 overs.


 


PLAYER REGISTRATIONS


Please ENSURE that all players are registered in advance of KRCL fixtures being played.


If you have any concerns, then please email me in advance of the fixture. Please note that I don’t appreciate phone calls on Match Days. Like yourselves, I spend Saturday’s playing cricket. Thus from 8am onwards, I will not be contactable !!


 



UNLOCKING SCORECARDS VIA PLAY CRICKET


Please NOTE that this facility on play cricket is not endorsed by the KRCL. If you submit a message via the portal, it will be REJECTED.


If you need to make an amendment to a scorecard, or edit further details, then please email me directly to;


brian_smith_scc@hotmail.co.uk


Please ensure that you include your club name, the date of the fixture, and the KRCL Division. I will then be able to log your enquiry and ensure that the scorecard is opened for editing purposes and then locked again once you have confirmed you have finished editing.

 

To help your opposition in advance of the fixture - please load your team onto play cricket. This will ensure that the 'correct' players are listed, and will lead to less examples of the wrong player being selected from club database. Alternatively, please ensure that you right the FULL NAME of players in the scorebook. Having A. Jones listed in the book is not very helpful, when you have registered players Andrew Jones and Alex Jones. You can see how mistakes happen !!


 


30 YARD FIELDING CIRCLE


Please note that a 30 yard fielding circle is to be used in the following divisions;


Premier


2A West


2A East


Refer to the playing conditions for further information.


 


CONCEDED FIXTURES


In the event that you have to concede a fixture – then please ensure that your opposition are informed no later than 12 noon on the Thursday before the game.


It is also imperative that I’m informed of such concessions as well.

4.4 In the event of the scores being level, each side receives 12 points plus any bonus points for bowling.


4.5 In the event of a match not being completed due to the weather, it will be classed as 'abandoned' and each side receives 10 points. There will be no bowling bonus points.


4.6 In the event of a team failing to fulfil a fixture, they will be deemed to have lost the match and will receive nopoints. They will also incur a penalty deduction of 5 points (paragraph 11.3). Their opponents shall be awarded 20 points.
