Changes to Laws of Cricket
Below are some links to the changes that come into effect for the following season
  • Players’ guide to the key law changes –(overview, length 5:41)
  • ECB ACO Summary of Law Changes –(length 19:54 – at 7:26 there is a very relevant section about bouncers, beamers and above waste high full tosses)
  • Law 42 – Player behaviour online tool (player conduct) – this section takes you through a step by step process of how to deal with poor player behaviour and the various levels involved
  • Bouncers and Beamers (and high full tosses)

  • The League Secretary and SDCA committee would like you to note:-

    Law 42 deals with unfair play - 47.1 deals specifically with full tosses and the change in procedure - removal of bowler after two high full tosses whereas it used to be three, and the pace of the bowler no longer matters
    Also, accuracy doesn't matter (it never has) - if it is high and several yards wide, it is a no ball and the warning procedure starts - A BEAMER IS A BEAMER

    Law 21 No ball - 21.7 states that it is now a no ball if it bounces more than once or rolls along the ground (before the popping crease) whereas it used to be bounce more than twice

    21.7 also deals with a new reason for giving a no ball - if a ball pitches partially or wholly of the pitch (10 foot wide pitch as opposed to the 8 foot 8 inch wide batting crease) that should be called no ball (that would have been a wide before)

    Cancellation Point Deductions

    The penalties for matches cancelled for reasons other than adverse weather will, for the 2015 season onwards, be on a sliding scale.
    For the first such cancellation, the penalty will be a 5 point deduction from the team that has had to cancel, with the award of 20 points to the other team. 
    For subsequent cancellations, the penalty will rise by 5 points each time - a 10 point deduction for a second cancellation, a 15 point deduction for a third cancellation, and a (maximum) 20 point deduction for any cancellation after that.
    The award of 20 points to the team not responsible for the cancellation remains the same for each and every instance
    Should any club need to cancel a match for other unforeseen extenuating circumstances, the SDCA committee will rule as to the necessity of any points deduction
