Further to the note below, after the inspection of a number of Semi Final venues and the continuing drizzle/rain which has saturated venues today, the BHRDCA CoM has reluctantly called off tonight’s Junior cricket.
Further communication re playing conditions for Friday night, should the current conditions persist, will be advised by Friday 11:00 a.m.
All Junior Clubs, please note that in light of the extreme conditions apparent & forecast today/tonight, the BHRDCA CoM will determine by 2:00 p.m. today, whether Day 1 of the Semi Finals will be played or not.
- If no play is possible tonite, Day 2 (Friday 6/3/2020) will revert to a One Day match played under One Day rules (Refer BHRDCA Junior Section Rules)
- In the event that Friday is also impacted by weather conditions (which are currently forecast) and the commencement of play is delayed, the match may be reduced to a minimum of 30 overs (15/team) to provide a result
- Any further time lost after that reduction and/or if no play is possible, the two highest finishing teams will be promoted to the respective Grand Final matches next week
Any further announcements re Junior Semi Final conditions will be posted to this Website and via the BHRDCA Social Media channels
The BHRDCA and Cricket Victoria are pleased to announce that we are embarking on an Indoor Cricket program over the winter months, (Term 2 and Term 3)which is open to boys and girls who currently play in the Under 12 and Under 14 age groups.
Please see attached flyer for details
This is a great way to enhance every facet of cricket as all kids bat, bowl and field, a great way to improve hand/eye coordination whilst having fun.
Team consist of 6 a side and only takes an hour on a Monday night where club plays club wearing your coloured cricket shirts. (eg Nunawading V Blackburn)
At a cost of $80 per player for the 8 week term with equipment provided it is certainly cost effective, the matches will be played at the Box Hill Action Indoor Centre.
This may also be an opportunity for friends of current club players to try their hand at cricket, potentially being a recruit the following outdoor season as indoor cricket can have an electrifying buzz about it.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to call me on 0450 336 992. Tom Anderson
Once again weather is threatening to impact our T20 cricket tomorrow.
We have exhausted the Reserve days available to us, so play will proceed as scheduled tomorrow afternoon.
The weather could impact at any time, and where possible the Umpires will ensure both teams receive equal amount of balls faced.
Be reminded to constitute a match, both teams must receive at least 5 overs. The team with the highest score after the 5 overs will be the winner. If more balls are bowled than the 5 overs, it will be the scores of both teams at that point that will decide the match.
In the event that both sides do not receive 5 overs, then if circumstances permit (Umpires will decide) a bowl off will be contested to achieve a result.
If circumstance make a bowl off impossible, the match shall be decided by the toss of a coin under the supervision of the Umpire.
Should no play commence, then the premiership will be awarded to the highest finishing teams of the two combatants.
These conditions are provided in the BHRDCA T20 Rules, which were generated from the Big Bash competition.
We hope that the weather has little impact on the matches, and the games can be played out but please be prepared.
Good luck to all teams.
Michael Van Zuyden (per BHRDCA CoM)
