  • The wicket keeper must be nominated before the first over of the game. 
  • A different keeper may be nominated before the first over of each game (in a tournament) but cannot be changed during the course of the game.

  • To the extent possible, all games will be officiated by members of CRY volunteers and other participating teams.
  • Officials will be objective and impartial in rendering decisions.

  • Two lines shall be drawn at a distance of 24 inches from the middle stump, at right angles to the crease.  Any ball, which in the umpire’s opinion passes the batting crease outside this line (full circumference of the ball outside the outer edge of the line) shall be called a wide, provided that it does not touch the bat and/or any part of the striker.  The regular return crease will be considered in the non-strikers end for the bowler. Any ball passing the striker over the shoulder height in the normal stance shall be considered a wide.
  • If six wickets fall (not including batsmen retiring not out under rule mentioned below before 6 over are completed the last remaining batsman shall bat on with the 6th out batsman. The last remaining batsman must always take the strike and therefore he must return to the batting crease after scoring. The last remaining batsman shall be declared "out" if his partner is "run out". The innings shall be completed on the fall of the seventh wicket
  • A batsman must retire "not out" on reaching a personal score of 31 runs but may not retire before reaching 31 runs.  If one of the last pair of batsmen is out before the completion of   five over the "retired not out" batsmen may return to continue their innings in the original batting order.  A returning   batsman will take the normal end for an incoming batsman after the fall of a wicket. The batsman may complete all runs possible off the stroke, which takes him to 31 runs; e.g., if on reaching 30 he then hits a boundary, the full score shall be added, or if he is able to run additional runs past 31, they shall also count.
  • If a fielder is injured during the course of a game, a substitute may be permitted subjected to the umpire's approval.  The substitute may be allowed to bowl if the injured player has   not already bowled, and to bat if the said player has not already batted.  In the case of wicket keeper being injured, he may be substituted, but this substitute may not have bowled   nor will be permitted to bowl. Once a substitute is introduced the player being replaced and shall not be permitted to play   again during the game in progress.  Substitution shall be allowed only in the case injury sustained during a game and for no other reason.
