POTENTIAL PLAYING RESTRICTIONS ON OVERSEAS PLAYERS IN 2nd and 3rd X1s in 2024

Following on from previous notices to clubs about the difficulties in adequately recognising playing standards for overseas players being registered at this level and the need to ensure that such players are of an appropriate standard to take part at this level, the following procedure is to be adopted from the 2024 season:

Using player information on the play-cricket system:

  1. A check will be made following the last game played in May, June, July and August.
  2. If the player averages 25% or more of the team’s runs scored or wickets taken, then a restriction will be applied. This will continue for the remainder of the season.
  3. The player will not be allowed to bat until 4 wickets have been taken (No 6) and/or will be limited to 8 overs bowling in a match.
  4. There is no appeal.
