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)
