I love B3, but that's nonsense.

The bat size regulations are now part of the laws, like they're literally written there in black and white. They're as much as part of the laws as the lbw rule. The laws of cricket apply to every game of cricket, whether amateur or professional. Unless the game you are playing in has specific exemptions written into the playing conditions, then this applies to you.

I'm not sure how clearer I can make this. What is it that you're not understanding? Do you not understand that they're in the laws, or do you not understand that the laws apply to all forms of cricket unless overruled by specific playing conditions?

MCC has announced specific limitations on the size of cricket bats that will be included in the new Code of Laws.

Bat size limitations to become Law, modes of dismissal to be reduced and language of the Laws to cater for both sexes.
Batsmen will be protected from bouncing bat run outs.
New Code of Laws will be the first to be issued since 2000.
After the new Code is issued on 1 October 2017, the maximum dimensions of a cricket bat will be 108mm in width, 67mm in depth with 40mm edges.

The move comes after consultations with bat manufacturers, the Federation of International Cricketers Associations, International Cricket Council, MCC World Cricket committee, umpires associations and other global governing bodies on the balance between bat and ball.

A bat gauge will ensure that the new limits are adhered to in the professional game, whilst a moratorium period, allowing players to use their existing bats which may be in breach of the Law, will be allowed in the amateur game. The length of the moratorium will be determined by local governing bodies and may vary for different levels of cricket

Sigh. Why are you quoting an old out-of-date press release at me? Obviously I've read the old press release, I read it at the time, I'm well aware of what they claimed they were going to do, I'm not an idiot.


But the bottom line is, whether or not that is what they intended, it isn't what has happened. The new bat size limits ARE part of the laws, and the laws apply to all forms of cricket, by default.

So you can forget all this (No Swearing Please) about a moratorium until 2020. Unless your league has written an exemption into its playing conditions, the bat size laws do apply to YOUR league and have done so since the moment law 5.7 was introduced.

I just checked the rules for the league I play in, there wasn't a single mention of bats under the equipment section

So law 5.7 is in force by default then, because presumably your league regs also say "All games to be played according to MCC Laws of cricket unless stated otherwise".

Edge,,,,,lovely lovely shape,,,,picks up like a feather Ill bet
Thanks mate, really pleased with how this one's turned out.

Big bats are definitely ok as long as you play below ECB prem leagues, similar to carbon handles etc etc. Perhaps take it to the bat laws thread if people really want to discuss the minutiae further!

Do you actually have a link to an actual law or regulation that states that though? Or is this just hearsay?

Cheers Dan, in an unusual move for me I haven't got any new sticks this year, although keeping this one for myself was tempting! The big one that started all this bat size chat off went so well last year I'm not even considering replacing it.
