Additional Twenty/20 Rules
Any Club or Team failing to fulfil a fixture shall be subject to a fine of £200 payable to the NPCL within 14 days and a 15 point deduction of League points.
They shall also be responsible for any costs incurred by the host Club either by way of travelling expenses, Umpire's expenses, or catering costs.
Clubs may consider the deduction of League points for a Cup competition to be harsh.
However, the NLEC consider that Clubs must be discouraged from failing to fulfil a
fixture even if they consider they have no chance of progressing in the competition as this would be a great dis-service to the host Club in the Group stage.
In the Group stage matches shall commence at 10.30 am and 2.00 pm. On Finals Day matches shall commence at 10.00 am, 1.00 pm and 4.00 pm.
The scores must be entered on www.play-cricket.com by 12.00 midnight and scorecards must also be entered on www.play-cricket.com within 24 hours of completion of the last game by the host Club.
Coloured clothing shall be worn.
A match shall be deemed to be uncompleted where there has been no play or the side batting second has received less than 5 overs.
In the event of bad weather preventing play or completion of the match there shall not be a 'bowl out' to determine the result unless otherwise stated in these rules and the match shall be declared an uncompleted match. In the Group stage each side shall receive 1 point in an uncompleted match. Net run rate in an uncompleted match shall not count towards the calculation of the net run rate over the whole of the Group stage.
Net run rate is defined as follows: the difference between your run rate and the opposition's run rate i.e. the runs scored per over minus the runs conceded per over. Apart from uncompleted matches (see above) the net run rate is calculated over all the games in the Group stage on a cumulative basis.
Group stage and Finals Day: In the event of the side in the first innings batting for longer than the side in the second innings the target score shall be decided by average run rate based on the number of legitimate balls faced.
The result of a completed match on the first Finals Day shall stand. An uncompleted match on the First Finals Day shall be played on the reserve Finals Day.
If there is an uncompleted match on the reserve Finals Day the result shall be determined by a 'bowl out'.
