After ratification at the Special General Meeting (held at Blackburn Cricket Club 7th July, 2021), the Senior Competition Rules for the 2021/22 season have now been updated and placed on this Site > Club Playing Resources > Rules & Regulations > Senior Playing Rules
Thank you to all Clubs who contributed updates/revisions for the new Rules
As indicated at the BHRDCA Delegates Meeting held earlier this week, the MyCricket Season setting has now been updated to reflect 2021/22. The update to reflect this has also been applied to all BHRDCA MyCricket Club databases.
Your MyCricket Administrator should now update any Office Bearers, Registration information or other records for the new season accordingly.
The window for MyCricket Clearances and Transfers for season 2021/22 is also now open and these player movements can be carried out via the normal MyCricket process.
To all Clubs/Players,
Following advice from Cricket Victoria and after feedback from Club representatives, the CoM met tonite and determined that Rnd 9 (Juniors – Fri 12th & Sat 13th Feb) & Rnd 12 (Seniors – Sat 13th Feb) of the 2020/21 season would be abandoned and not be replayed at any time in the remaining playing days of this summer.
All Match Results should be entered as Match Drawn on MyCricket and each Club should name a Team Sheet for their respective Grades/Teams. Any such Team sheet and Match Drawn result must be entered by 11:59 p.m. Friday 19 Feb after which all Friday & Saturday matches from 12 Feb & 13 Feb will be locked permanently and no further opportunity for additions will be made available.
Also, any Senior MyCricket Permits applied for in Rnd 12, apply to Rnd 13, however new Permits for Rnd 13 will also be accepted until 10.00 p.m. Thursday 18th (normal Permit conditions apply).
Should any query arise from above please contact either your Club Secretary/President who have been further communicated with, by the BHRDCA CoM this evening.
Good luck to all and sundry on the return to cricket this weekend.
COVID-19 Peak Bodies update: 4/1/21
Trust you were able to enjoy the Christmas break.
Just want to keep the communication open re any COVID logistics for the clubs, as we return back to cricket this week.
You and your teams have done a wonderful job so far enabling people to play and be part of the game, we will need everyone to be on top of their game once cricket starts again.
As we know things can move quickly with COVID. At this stage we haven’t had a sport specific update from the State Government in 2021 – but key things to note are as follows…
This returns to the recent rule where it is required indoors (social rooms / change rooms etc.) and remains recommended outdoors (especially where social distancing is an issue). It is also required on public transport and where a mini bus or car pooling are required to get to games.
NUMBER OF PEOPLE INDOORS (SOCIAL / CHANGE ROOMS)
In the days leading in to Christmas, the State Government confirmed that the rules for the number of people inside at outdoor community sport’s facilities (social rooms, change rooms etc.) can increase to 1 person per 2sqm down from the previous 1 per 4sqm. This therefore is the new normal until further notice but only for clubs who are using a QR code system to capture attendees. Those not using a QR code system must stick with the 1 per 4sqm rule. On the CV website under the COVID-19 resource section is the simple poster for use – https://www.cricketvictoria.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Attendance-Capacity-Poster.pdf
Social functions, team selection dinners etc remain fine to proceed
So long as clubs are sticking to density limits and liquor licence regulations (& are allowed by the local council), then social functions are fine to proceed. Ideally maximise time spent outdoors v indoors.
Other recommended protocols remain in place (and are subject to local Association rules) including:
– hands & ball sanitised at least once per 20 overs;
– no sharing of food / drinks (eg no communal food at lunch / afternoon tea);
– umpires to not touch the ball or players hats, caps, jumpers;
– bowlers to leave their cap, jumper, sunnies either over the boundary or behind the umpire at the bowlers end in line with the stumps.
We will keep the updates coming as things may change following the worsening situation in Vic & NSW over the past week or so.
Thank you, appreciate your support.
