League rules of note for matches

Player eligibility

Players may play 2 years age down from their actual age group (ie Under 15) except if the player is a representative player or selected into any of the area or County squads

The names of players playing down must be made known to the league and opposition manager /coach prior to the fixture taking place.

No more than 2 players may play down in the same game

Overs : 20 overs per innings consisting of 6 deliveries. In the final over of each innings 6 legal deliveries to be bowled.

Bowlers : Bowlers may bowl up to a maximum of 3 overs per bowler

Wicketkeepers : Wicketkeepers must wear a helmet when keeping wicket at all times regardless of whether they are standing up to the stumps or not.

The wicket keeper may be changed during either innings but as a league guideline, it is suggested that the two managers agree prior to the start of the game whether the outgoing player may then bowl or not.


Wide balls and no balls shall be called and shall concede 2 extras and any additional runs/extras scored off the ball.

No extra ball is bowled in the case of a wide or no ball, until the final over of the innings, when 6 legal deliveries must be bowled.

Batting retirements : When reaching 25 runs , the batter shall be made aware of reaching the figure but will be allowed to bat out the over in which they reach the milestone, with all runs and extras counting as normal, towards both his/her own personal score and that of the team. At the end of the over, the batter is then ‘retired not out’ and not allowed to return. Any batter who loses their wicket before the end of the over shall be ‘out’ in the same way they would at any other point in the innings.

If a side gets to the stage where their final two batters are batting and one of the two players reaches their retirement score, they do not have to retire (i.e. if there is no-one else left to come in to bat). The two players may continue batting until the final wicket falls or the innings concludes.
