As we reach the fixtures associated with One Day matches a reminder of the Line Marking obligations for all clubs participating in 40 Over One day games – Refer BHRDCA Senior Rules 3(n)…

A 27.5 metre Fielding restriction circle is to be adopted in all 40 Over One Day matches.

  • Area of Restriction; the restricted area shall be the area around the pitch within semi-circles, one at each end, and straight lines, one on each side.
  • Semi-circles and line measurements; the radius of each semi-circle shall be 27.5 metres from the centre stump and the extremities of its base shall meet with the straight lines of pitch length, at points either side of the pitch in line with the bowling crease.
  • Marking of area limits; The limits of the restricted area shall be clearly marked by a white line or by flat discs.  The discs shall be 30 in number (min) and approximately 7 metres apart with one disc at each extremity at the bases of the semi-circles.
  • For the first eight overs of each innings no more than two players may be outside the circle; and

We loved seeing the post this week from Laburnum Cricket Club, see below how they have utilised association sponsor Childsafe to endorse Child Safe Policies.

Hello to all members of LCC,

The committee recently held an extraordinary meeting where we focused on the responsibilities of the club in relation to the findings from the final report of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Cricket Australia has provided guidance to community clubs in relation to our response and commitment to Safeguarding Children and Young People, and we subsequently undertook to obtain support from “ChildSafe”, endorse this policy, and adopt the Cricket Australia recommendations.

The Committee made the following official endorsement:

“That the Laburnum Cricket Club endorse and adopt (1) Australian Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children and Young People, (2) Australian Cricket’s ‘Looking After Our Kids’ Code of Behaviour for Affiliated Associations and Clubs, and (3) Australian Cricket’s Commitment to Safeguarding Children and Young People, effective as at 25 June 2019”.

Our success in making our club a safe place for children and young people relies on all members and we look forward to working with you to make this work at LCC.

Further details are available via the club website
