Hampshire League AGM results

by Michael Dodd 0 Comments

Earlier this month the Hampshire Cricket League held its AGM, during which a number of rule and constitution changes were proposed. To summarise the carried changes:

  • Proposals to change, add or delete from the Constitution or Rules of Play now require a simple majority (at least 51%).
  • Fielding circles to be introduced in County 2 and County 3 North & South for the 2017 season
  • Any club withdrawing from the league automatically takes one of the relegation places for their division
  • Safety rulings regarding short-pitched “bouncer” balls

All other proposals did not carry. Full details can be found in this document: Hampshire Cricket League – Proposed Constitution & Rule Changes 2017 (.doc)

Latest Indoor Game

by Ian Burrows 0 Comments

The indoor team had another good win against Peartree Bees last night to maintain their 100% record and make it 6 wins from 6. A good team batting performance saw us reach 165-3 in the 12 overs with all batsmen making it past double figures. Chris (26*), Bob(27*) and Kev S (18) were the top three scorers. We were then solid with the ball and in the field, restricting Peartree to 105-5 to win by 60 runs. Shiv and Bob took 2 wickets each and Chris one. The result leaves us well placed in the league table with three games to go.
