JACK COX RULES 2002

 

  1. The competition is a friendly competition and all this should be reflected at all times by the players and umpires.
  2. The competition shall be organised into two groups. All teams will play each other team in the group. Teams will get 2 points for a win and 1 point each for a draw. At the end of group play the team with the most points in each group shall play the team with the second most points in the other group in a semi-final. The winners of the semi-finals will then play each other in the final to decide the winner of the Jack Cox Trophy.
  3. In the event of two or more teams having the same number of points at the end of the group stage, the position of the teams will be decided by which teams have beaten whom in the group stage. If this still leads to a tie then the team position within the group will be decided by net run rate. Net run rate is defined to be (Total runs scored in all group matches/Total number of overs or part overs faced) (Total runs conceded in all group matches/Total number of overs or part overs delivered).
  4. The games will consist of 20 overs per side. A minimum of 15 overs shall be completed by each side for the result to stand. In the event of a rain affected match the Duckworth-Lewis rules shall apply. In particular see Example 1 at http://www.cricket.org/link_to_database/ABOUT_CRICKET/RAIN_RULES/DUCKWORTH_LEWIS.html.
