Rule 21

Early Abandonments. A decision to abandon a match shall not normally be taken before 3.00pm (2. 0pm in September) on the appointed day with both teams and umpires present. In extreme weather conditions, when there is no prospect of play, the match can be called off after 10am on the morning of the game subject to all of the following conditions, as appropriate, being met:

a) Initially, the Captains of both clubs teams will verbally agree, which must then be followed up by a written (e-mail or text) confirmation

b) The weather forecast and conditions and state of the ground mean that there would be no chance of play by the latest possible start time using normal drying methods.

c) In the case of games in the Premier Division and Division 1 (A&B), the ground must be inspected by a panel umpire as designated by the umpires committee. This umpire will be entitled to expenses for the abandoned game.

 

ECB Club Support

The ECB have set up a resource base to support clubs as they look to develop a gateway to the self-help support resources available to help cricket clubs meet the ever changing demands and challenges they face.
