All Club League Representatives,
Following the recent Presentations of the MCC New Laws of Cricket I hereby need to make you aware of the only New Law which will not be applied to all teamsin our League this season.
New Law 19.1.2 states "The boundary shall be determined such that no part of any sight-screen will, at any stage of the match, be within the field of play."
This Law is obviously to be adhered to if your playing area allows room for the sight-screens to be outside.
However, on smaller grounds where one or both sight-screens have to be within the boundary the sight-screens the New Law above will not apply and matches will be played as they have been played in the past.
It is always best if white painted boards can be situated along the front of the sight-screens acting as the boundary.
I hope your club will have an enjoyable season playing within the Code of Conduct and Spirit of Cricket (Page44) which have a greater emphasis than ever before under the New Laws (particularly Laws 41 & 42).
Reagrds Mim Davies - Chairman of the Gunn & Moore South Nottinghamshire Cricket League
