Over the past month or so there have been a number of requests to reopen MyCricket matches.
The majority of these requests have resulted from the HOME TEAM’s actions when they have (incorrectly) confirmed scores before the AWAY TEAM has had an opportunity to complete or check the scores & enter their player records. It is the AWAY TEAM’s responsibility to Confirm the match.
To clarify the BHRDCA MyCricket Match entry requirements…
BOTH TEAMS should enter their Selected teams (the equivalent to a Team Sheet) prior to, or at the latest, by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match commences
The HOME TEAM should enter the Short Result & update the Match status to a Saved Match Result by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match has concluded. (NOTE: Any earlier progress scores i.e. Innings entered after Day 1 of a Two Day game should only be saved as a Match in Progress.) Where possible, the HOME TEAM player performances should also be entered by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match has concluded (NOTE: This makes it easier for the AWAY team to meet their match completion obligations & for the Ladders to be formalised as early as possible in the days following the actual match conclusion)
The AWAY TEAM has up to three days after the match has concluded e.g. Tuesday at 6.00 p.m. to enter their player performances & to ensure that the HOME TEAM has entered the result correctly. The AWAY TEAM on ascertaining that the match result & team lists are correct should then Confirm the match as an accurate reflection of the Match outcome.
This will trigger an alert to the BHRDCA that the match day administration has been completed and the result (and Ladders) will be made official.
