1.In the unlikely event that a game is cancelled by you and the opposing Captain, you MUST 2.5 HOURS BEFORE THE SCHEDULED START, contact the League Coordinator, if league umpires are assigned. For the 2010 season contact Angus Melder at 604-637-2678 or Myriam Sanchez at 604-279-1363 to call off the League Umpire/Scorer. To call off a Club Umpire, contact the individual Club Umpire Contact listed in the BCMCL Handbook. (See pre-match playing rules).
2. It is League policy that GAMES CANNOT BE RESCHEDULED. However, if a ground is not available through circumstances beyond your control, an effort will be made to reschedule the game if possible. Also please note that GAMES CANNOT BE RESCHEDULED ONCE THIS SCHEDULE HAS BEEN PRESENTED.
3. Inter-Provincial or Representative Games: If a club has three (3) or more players selected to represent Vancouver, British Columbia or Canada, and this results in their absence from a scheduled game, the club may request rescheduling of the game(s) concerned. Such request for rescheduling should be addressed to the Honorary Secretary and be received by him/her in writing not later than seven (7) days prior to the scheduled game.
4. Grounds: Clubs should try to rectify problems with the grounds by working on them themselves and putting some effort into improvement. If after doing so the problem continues, please contact Jim Richards (604-983-9561).
If a match has been cancelled for any reason and league umpires/scorers are appointed for the match, contact Angus Melder at 604-637-2678 (or Myriam Sanchez at 604-279-1363) and the League Umpires and Scorer will be notified. Clubs failing to notify Angus Melder of match cancellation will be billed for the League Umpires/Scorers.
Pre-Match Local Rules:
It is the duty of the captains to decide on the fitness of the ground for play at least 2.5 hours prior to the scheduled starting time on the match day. IF they cannot agree, the teams must report to the ground for a further ground inspection. In the event of further disagreement and if appointed umpire or umpires are absent, the match shall begin. IF THE CAPTAINS TOGETHER ABANDON THE MATCH, THEY MUST INFORM THE LEAGUE SECRETARY & UMPIRES/SCORERS COORDINATOR BY THE ABOVE TIME TO AVOID BEING BILLED FOR THE ATTENDANCE OF MATCH OFFICIALS (Includes “Club” umpires).
FOR ALL CAPTAINS & UMPIRES (CLUB or LEAGUE)
The BCMCL has a zero tolerance policy on player indiscipline and we will take all necessary steps to ensure that the game is played in the true spirit of cricket.
The BCMCL Code of Conduct will be strictly adhered to and the umpire will bring the charge(s) to the Protest and Disciplinet committee.
You can find more information on BCMCL’s code of conduct at http://www.bcmcl.ca/index.jsp?page_id=code_conduct.
Here is few key points to remember:
The Captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that play is conducted within the spirit of the game as well as within the Laws.
The Laws (of Cricket) also state that the Umpires are sole judges of fair and unfair play and are entitled to intervene without appeal in the case of unfair play, but should not otherwise interfere with the progress of the game, except as required to do so by the Laws. Further, that in the event of a player failing to comply with the instructions of an umpire or criticizing his decisions,(dissent) the umpires should in the first place request the captain to take action, and if this proves ineffective, report the incident as soon as possible to the executive of the players team and to any governing body responsible for the match.
