At the end of a match both Captains must agree that the Scorebooks are an accurate reflection of the game, i.e. they must balance and should, in theory, be correct and matching each other in the details associated with Batting, Bowling & Fielding, inclusive of any Sundries involved.
Home teams should enter the match scores for both teams and ensure that their records of the match are correct within 26 Hours (Seniors/Veterans) & 32 Hours (Juniors) after the completion of the final days play and importantly then save the match with the result of the game.
The Away team then gets an additional 24 hours within which they should either check that their player performances are correct, if entered by the Home Team, or if not entered by the Home Team, complete them and “Confirm” the result as an accurate reflection of what occurred in the match.
Any discrepancies should be sorted out via communication between Clubs; all Contact details are on the BHRDCA Website or have been distributed to Clubs by the Section Mgrs.
As the 2015/16 season commencement draws near, there have already been many new MyCricket Player Registrations, Clearances and Transfers effected by Clubs. To avoid confusion and rejection of these applications please note…
Any player who has not played cricket previously and/or does not have a MyCricket ID will require a MyCricket Player Registration. This will add the player to your clubs MyCricket database and create their eligibility for player insurance cover
A MyCricket Player Clearance is required when you are recruiting a new player to your club, who has previously been registered on MyCricket and played with another BHRDCA affiliated club
A MyCricket Player Transfer is required when you are recruiting a new player to your club, who has previously been registered on MyCricket and played with another club that is NOT affiliated with the BHRDCA
An updated listing of all 2015/16 Senior and Junior clubs affiliated with the BHRDCA can be located on the Website – Click on the ‘About’ Tab and then on ‘2015/16 Club Contacts’
If you have any queries on the MyCricket Registration, Clearance or Transfer process, please give me a call on 0420 904 467.

BHRDCA Committee of Management
To all Clubs & MyCricket Administrators…
I have now set MyCricket to reflect 2015/16 as the active season for the BHRDCA
- Reconfirmation flags set of all applicable person records for this association and clubs. The auto remove date is now set to 31 December 2015.
- Office Bearers information has been copied to the current season where no data existed previously so you will need to update this to reflect any changes since your AGM’s were held
BHRDCA Admin Mgr.
As previously advised, Emma Boschetti is not continuing in the role this season.
We are delighted to announce Jo Fairy will fill the rather large shoes left behind. Jo has worked with the association over the last 2 seasons taking team photos of the VMCU representative sides and shots throughout the carnival. Jo has her own business and a wealth of experience in digital marketing, sponsorship sourcing and business partnership development.
Jo is already meeting with potential sponsors and continuing the excellent work Emma did. In the interim Jo can be contacted on 0411 313 334, further contact details will be provided shortly.
The BHRDCA has secured a $5000.00 grant from Cricket Victoria to continue developing junior female cricket within the association. Hot on the heels of winning the u/12 VMCU Claudia Fatone shield in January, this will assist in continuing the development of those players and providing opportunities for them. In addition , ALL clubs are requested to have female participation in their thoughts as they plan for the upcoming junior season.
This area is a big push from both Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia with the Big Bash season to have female teams for each franchise this season and the profile of female cricket continuing to grow. Clubs will be able to work with the association as part of this grant to attract players and help with equipment, clothing, training and other resources to develop individuals and teams.
More information can be sought from the Committee of Management and a huge thanks to Ross Chambers who did the leg work to secure this.
