Thames Valley League

ODI cricket half the season and draw cricket the other half in div 1 & 2 - hopefully further down soon

ODI cricket normal rules

100 overs draw cricket (52/48). no bowler limits (which is awful for so many reasons) overs carried over if not used by the batting side

25 points for a win
bonus points for every 2 wickets. max of 5
bonus points for 100-200 every 25 runs. max of 5 (10 if you bat first and don't win)

I like the mixed format but prefer the ODI stuff.

draw cricket allows you to bowl a side out that doesn't want to get out and it's the best feeling. It's so rare though and having teams not try and win is a death to cricket - if they put you must get within 10% of the overall total to get bonus points that would be more interesting.

T20 only - Same rules as T20 Internationals
Win/Lose or Games Washed Out
4 points for a win and 2 for Games Washed Out
Depending on the season either top 2 teams win the division or top 4 play go into semis

Hate: If semis are washed out, there is no reserve day. Team with more points progresses to finals.

1s play pretty close to international one day possibly bar the odd bye law difference. So 50 overs, power plays, dls etc etc. Four points for a win, two for a tie.Rained off games rearranged as a 50 over then as a 20 at a second rearrangement. 2nd half of season rearrangements go straight to 20 overs. Run rate used as well.

In 2s we play 40 overs but are allowed to reduce by 10 if both teans agree. 3s are 35 4s 30 again they are allowed to reduce by 10. There are 8 teams in a league one rearrangements as a 20 over. Same points as 1s but no run rate. If teams are tied previous year's place decides.

We have played 1 league 40 over game we normally reduce to 35 or 30.
If rearranged games are washed out they are voided so as good as a loss.

It's amazing that we all play the same beautiful game and yet I don't think 2 leagues have the same rules!

50 overs, win or lose cricket.

Max of 22 points
10 points for a win
max of 5 bowling points (every 2nd wicket)
max of 7 batting points (every 25 runs starting at 125 up to 250)

If you bat 2nd you get bonus points for wickets in hand.
If the opposition have less than 11 players you get full bowling points for getting them all out.

First half of the season Win / Lose win 24 points if you  win lose 1 point for wickets 4 6 8 10 and 1 point for batting for runs 125 150 175 200 225 250 275
Second half of the season win/ draw/ loseing draw / winning draw
If you win the toss bat first and win you get 24 points
If you win the toss and field first and win you get 20 points.
The first half of the season usually dictates  where you finish in the division.

Yeah I agree
No wonder people get peed off with it all

Too many out of touch league committees trying too hard to over complicate what should be simple

Don't think it's the committees - generally it's the players who don't want to change their traditional Saturdays. it requires a vote and a change in the rules

Also think the ECB have a role to play here to make cricket more of a pyramid so that players can actually go up through the tiers instead of the closed shop it is currentl. this would help standardise the game

I think the newer players don't appreciate the way crickets been played and want the change to suit their lifestyles.

It is a totally different world we live and play in nowadays

I genuinely believe most league committees are stuck in the good old days mentality and would rather watch the mass exodus of teams etc than change the structures.

Not sure what the answers are going forward, definitely a standard needs to be set regarding win lose, overs allowed to be bowled , length of games etc etc
Neighbouring leagues not playing the same structure seems daft for instance

I don't want to have a go at the league committees because they do a huge amount of work, for free, so we can have a game of cricket each weekend.  They need to be thanked for that. The problem is, the old phrases "we've always done it like that".  I do feel that as committee members age and step down, that some leagues will start to restructure.  As much as i love the game, traveling an hour, starting at 1.30 and finishing at 9pm with no side winning does seem a bit bonkers.
