When is it too wet or hot?

Too Hot?

The heat rule for under age matches shall be as follows: 

  • No scheduled morning match will commence if the temperature has reached 30 degrees Celsius by 8.00 am. (Refer SD&CCL Heatline for details 9513 2812 )
  • Afternoon games will not commence if the temperature reaches 35 degrees Celsius by 4pm.
  • The temperatures broadcast on Melbourne Radio 774 ABC will be taken as the official temperature for the purposes of this by-law

Training is cancelled if temperatures are over 35 degrees at 3pm

Too Wet? A Washout or not....

Games are not officially washed out until both teams agree.   A washout can be agreed over the phone - but if the other team wants to play you must turn up.  

The game can be washed out if the ground is slippery and dangerous:

  • bowlers can't run up safely
  • fielders can't run safely
  • batsmen can't run safely.     
  • bowlers can't run up safely
  • fielders can't run safely
  • batsmen can't run safely.     

Bring an old rag to dry the ball.....
