JACK COX RULES 2003

 

  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 three groups one of five teams and the other two of four teams. All teams will play each other team in the group followed by quarterfinals, semifinals and a grand final. Teams will get 2 points for a win and 1 point each for a draw in the group stage.
  3. At the end of group play the top team in each group will go through to the top section (positions 1, 2 and 3) of the quarter finals, and the second team in each group will go through to the middle section (positions 4, 5 and 6) of the quarter finals. In addition the two teams with the highest net run rate from those teams that remain will go through to the bottom section (positions 7 and 8) of the quarter finals. The actual team in each position within each section will be determined by a random draw from those teams making up the section.
  4. The order of play for the quarterfinals will be 1 v 8, 3 v 6, 2 v 7 and 4 v 5. The order of play for the semifinals will be the winners of QF 1 v QF 2 and the winners of QF 3 v QF 4. The final will be played between the winners of the two semifinals.
  5. 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).
  6. The games will consist of 20 overs per side. If a game is rained off after a minimum of 15 overs have been completed by each side the Duckworth-Lewis rules shall apply. If a game is rained off before 15 overs per side have been bowled the result shall be declared a draw. For further information of the Duckworth-Lewis rule see Example 1 at http://www.cricket.org/link_to_database/ABOUT_CRICKET/RAIN_RULES/DUCKWORTH_LEWIS.html.
