Blowfly Cricket

Blowfly Cricket has started its 3rd season under the West Penno banner and is an amazing experience for those folk with a disability and their families & friends.  We have between 12 and 20 participants each Friday. Games details are;

  • When – every Friday night
  • Time: 6.00 pm to around  7.30 pm
  • Where: James Henty Oval

Blowfly Cricket gives young people with autism, special needs &/or disabilities the chance to play organised sport. It also gives families the chance to be involved and enjoy seeing their children having fun and just enjoying life. The following link provides a great insight into Blowfly Cricket – here and the Photo Gallery – here

If you have someone in your family or know someone with this disability then let them know about Blowfly cricket. Registrations are open all season and everyone is welcome. Games finish with a BBQ and at times it is hard to work out who enjoys the Blowfly season more – the players or families / carers.

If you want to know more then check out our website here or give Bill Peterkin a call on 0488 110 942 or here

Sports Club Merger outcome

As mentioned last week, Sports Club members voted during the week on a proposal to merge with Mounties. Members voted 169 against to 108 in favour so the joint recommendation from the Sports Club and Mounties was rejected.

While there were strong arguments put on both sides the deciding factor was uncertainty around Mounties medium / long term intentions about redevelopment of the land into Over 55’s living and the end of Sports Club as a Community venture.

So no change to what we have been used to and an opportunity for all of us to support the Club as all businesses slowly come out of Covid.

 Transition from MyCricket

MyCricket has been with us since way back in 2008/09. Before then we used old manually completed scoresheets season summaries. Cricket Australia has advised that a decision has been made on a new Australia-wide system – PlayHQ.

A few things to note:

  • The new system will be providing our future Competition and Program Management digital products. Check out the announcement here
  • Transition will occur over the next two to three seasons to a new intuitive, user friendly platform that reduces time spent on administrative tasks.
  • PlayHQ, has existing project with Basketball Victoria and their recent signing of the AFL.

Your involvement

You can be kept informed of progress and check out early prototypes by simply adding your name to a register and you will receive regular updates. Just register via the following link: here

COVID – Return to playing Conditions

The Association CovidSafe Playing conditions are:

PLAYER BEHAVIOUR

Players are advised to use a hand sanitiser prior to taking the field at the start of a match and prior to resumption of play following a break. Players should:

  1. OBEY Physical Distancing, both on and off the field.
  2. NOT use saliva or sweat to polish the ball.
  3. NOT lick your fingers.
  4. NOT high five or shake hands in the celebration process.
  5. AVOID spitting.
  6. NOT share towels.
  7. NOT share drink bottles.

THE BALL

  • The Fielding Team Captain, or their delegate, is responsible for the cleaning of the ball, using an alcohol-based spray and microfibre cloth at the fall of a wicket and scheduled breaks in play.
  • The umpire(s) (CAPTAINS), are to supervise this practice and ensure that it is carried out as prescribed.

A fielder may:

  • Polish the ball on their clothing provided that no artificial substance or saliva or sweat is used.
  • Remove mud from the ball under supervision of the umpire
  • Dry a wet ball on a cloth that has been approved by the umpire.

WHEN A WICKET FALLS, END OF SESSION.

At the fall of a wicket, the player in possession of the ball should place the ball at the base of the stumps from which the next delivery will be bowled.

At the conclusion of a session, the fielding captain should place the ball back in the original box OR a plastic bag and give it to the umpire; this process is repeated at the end of play.

USE OF SALIVA OR SWEAT ON THE BALL

ENFORCEMENT:

If a player unintentionally, through habit, in the opinion of the umpire, deliberately applies saliva or sweat on the ball (this includes a player licking his/her finger prior to gripping the ball), the umpire, in the first instance, should:

  1. Call dead ball
  2. Call the player and their captain and inform them of the breach of the Playing Condition
  3. The umpire will issue a first warning to the player and their captain, and record the name of the offending player and the time of the incident.
  4. The umpire will direct the captain to undertake the ball cleaning procedure prior to play recommencing.
  5. Play may then continue.

If a player, following a second and final warning, in the opinion of the umpire, deliberately applies saliva or sweat on the ball (this includes a player licking his/her finger prior to gripping the ball), the umpire should:

  1. Call Dead Ball.
  2. Call the player and their captain and inform them of the third or thereafter breach of the Playing Condition.
  3. The umpire will report the incident as a repetitive breach, to the Executive Officer of the HKHDCA by email within 24 hours of the conclusion of the days play.
  4. The umpire will direct the captain to undertake the ball cleaning procedure prior to play recommencing.
  5. Play may then continue.

NOTE: Umpires (including player umpires) will award a five-run penalty to the batting side, if in their opinion, the offence has been committed more than twice by a player within the innings, and continue to do so if further breaches by that player are observed and noted.

NOTE: It is recommended that the SQUARE LEG Umpire be primarily responsible for observing the fielding team’s adherence to the above protocols with regard to the cleaning/polishing of the ball, in concert with their colleague, however, it is not to be considered that only they are monitoring the observations.

 BOWLER’S HAT OR CAP.

If the bowler wishes to bowl without their cap or hat, there are three options:
1.
The bowler may leave their hat/cap outside of the boundary, if they are fielding near or on the boundary, when not bowling.

OR,

 2. The bowler may place their hat/cap behind the keeper, as is the usual situation with helmets at rest, however, no penalty runs will be awarded if the ball hits the hat/cap on the ground behind the keeper.

OR,

 3. The bowler may, with the permission of the umpire, place their hat/cap at the mark commencing their run, however, no penalty runs will be awarded if the ball hits the hat/cap on the ground behind the BOWLERS END STUMPS.

STUMPS

The umpires should be the only people to set the stumps prior to play, each umpire responsible for their end stumps only, initially and when resetting the stumps.

When only one umpire is present, they will be responsible for the stumps at both ends.

ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT: To be supplied by each captain/team/club

  1. Hand sanitizer
  2. Alcohol based spray (ISOCOL) and microfibre cloth.

TEAM SHEETS

Paper Team Sheets are to be completed in line with the competition rules, but NOT exchanged. It is recommended that the Umpires and the captains may take a photo of the team sheets to enable the information to be accessible throughout the match.

SCORING

Each team should IDEALLY have the necessary electronic scoring device available for live scoring on MYCRICKET.
