Changes agreed at League AGM

by Ian Burrows 0 Comments

The Hampshire league AGM last night discussed a range of changes to rules
for next season: some proposed by clubs and some by the committee. The main
changes agreed were:

– All matches to have a default start time of 1.00 (though teams can
request a time up to 2.00). We had seconded this motion.
– Regional leagues to be 40 overs per side
– No bowler to bowl more than 20% of the total overs so 9 per bowler for
1s next season and 8 for 2s
– Players can be loaned between teams: so if we have a surplus and the
opposition, or another local team, are short we could offer surplus players
a game. It remains to be seen how this will work in practice but it could
help.
– If rain intervenes 3.5 minutes per over per team will be allowed when
adjusting the overs to be played. This will give more flexibility to
arrange a delayed start. or adjust overs after the game has begun

Proposals rejected included not re-bowling wides in regional divisions,
making regional division 3 games 35 overs per side and reducing all
divisions to 10 teams. Making divisions 10 teams was a close vote and was,
in the end, virtually a vote of confidence in the committee, who strongly
opposed the idea!
