RAIN RULE

Rain Rule:

At 10 pm in the night, the weather would be checked to determine if the rain would continue all night and well into the playing time in the morning. If that will be the case, the play will be called off for the day, night before and all teams would share 2 points. If the chances of rain are not high during the playing time in the night but still significant enough, than a determination would be made at 6 am in the morning on whatsapp group to continue or to call off the play, i.e. before the teams start their commute. If it is determined during that point at 6am that chances are not high for rain during the playing time, then the play would go on. The teams would have to show up at the ground to share the bonus points if the match is washed out as a match can even be played as a shortened match per rain rules otherwise the match will be awarded as no show and the team at the ground will be awarded all 4 points rather than sharing 2 points due to wash out.

The umpire is there only to determine if the match can continue or not during the rain and will only make rulings on Rule 1. The team needs to have figured out Rule 2, Rule 3 and Rule 4 in order to determine the winning scores. If the rule is unclear, the management will review the scores and provide the ruling on the winner / tie

  1. There is total 30 minutes of grace period to be allowed to rain during a playing day before over reduction comes in to place.
    1. The 30 minutes lost can occur at any time of the playing scheduled hours or in intervals. As long as they are 30 minutes is the total. It can occur at the beginning of Game 1, or in the middle of Game 1, or beginning of Game 2 or in the middle 2 or at the beginning of Game 3 or in middle of Game 3. Basically, total time without any impact lost is 30 minutes

 

  1. Once 30 minutes grace period is over, the over reduction will start to take place from the point the grace period is over. It can occur in Game 1 or any Game 1 as mentioned in the day as mentioned in 1a. right after the 30 minutes grace period limit is hit

 

  1. After the 30 minutes grace period, for each 5 minute, one over will be reduced for the maximum of 15 minutes OR 3 overs lost time after which match will be abounded. Each inning has to be played for at least 5 overs in order to constitute for a match.

 

  1. At any point if a match is abounded, the overs reduction for the next match will not start till past the start time of the next match. For example, if the first match is schedule to start at 8 am and after the 30 minutes grace period and 15 minutes over reduction, the match is abounded, than the overs reduction for the second match will only start from 9 am which is the schedule start time for the second game. If the rain continue to persist and 15 minutes additional are lost, at 9:15 am, the second match will be abounded. At this point, we will have to wait till 10 am for the third match to start the reduction overs. If the rain continues, the third match can be abounded by 10:15 am. This is one example on when to start the over reduction for the game following a washout game.

 

  1. The following winning scores will be required for rain curtailed matches
    1. If the team batting first bats 8 overs and rain reduces the overs for the team batting second, the following scenario applies:
      1. If the team batting second gets to bat more than 7 overs and less than or equal to 8 overs, they would need to chase 100% of the Team 1 total in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (100% plus 1)
      2. If the team batting second gets to bat more than 6 overs but less than or equal to 7 overs, they would need to chase 90% of the Team 1 total in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (90% plus 1)
  • If the team batting second gets to bat more than 5 overs but less than or equal to 6 overs, they would need to chase 75% of the Team 1 total in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (75% plus 1)
  1. If the team batting second gets to bat 5 overs, they would need to chase 60% of the Team 1 total in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (60% plus 1)
  2. If the team batting second gets to bat less than 5 overs, the match is considered a washout as there is a minimum requirement of 5 overs to be played by each team.

  1. Rounding off Scores to the next whole number
    1. If the % round off for the score is not the whole number than the next number is use for the tie score plus 1. For e.g. if team 1 scores 97 runs in 8 overs, following scenarios comes into play
      1. If the team batting second gets to bat more than 7 overs and less than or equal to 8 overs, they would need to chase 100% of the Team 1 total = 97 x 100% = 97 runs. This number is rounded whole number which is 97 runs in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (97 plus 1) = 98 to win
      2. If the team batting second gets to bat more than 6 overs and less than or equal to 7 overs, they would need to chase 90% of the Team 1 total = 97 x 90% = 87.3 runs. This number would be round off to the next whole number which is 88 runs in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (88 plus 1) = 89 to win
  • If the team batting second gets to bat 6 overs, they would need to chase 75% of the Team 1 total = 97 x 75% = 72.75 runs. This number would be round off to the next whole number which is 73 runs in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (73 plus 1) = 74 to win
  1. If the team batting second gets to bat 5 overs, they would need to chase 60% of the Team 1 total = 97 x 60% = 58.2 runs. This number would be round off to the next whole number which is 59 runs in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (59 plus 1) = 60 to win
  2. If the team batting second gets to bat less than 5 overs, the match is considered a washout as there is a minimum requirement of 5 overs to be played by each team.

  1. Rounding off Overs to the next Over
    1. If the overs are in between when the match is stopped, than the next over is used as the whole number for the overs played. For e.g. if team 1 scores 97 runs in 8 overs, following scenarios comes into play
      1. If the team batting second gets to bat 7.2 overs and the rain allows no further play, they would have need to reach the score of 8 overs which is 100% of the Team 1 total = 97 x 100% = 97 runs in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (97 plus 1) = 98 to win
      2. If the team batting second gets to bat 6.1 overs and the rain allows no further play,, they would have need to reach the score of 7 overs which is 90% of the Team 1 total = 97 x 90% = 87.3 runs. This number would be round off to the next whole number which is 88 runs in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (88 plus 1) = 89 to win
  • If the team batting second gets to bat 5.5 overs and the rain allows no further play,, they would have need to reach the score of 6 overs which is 75% of the Team 1 total = 97 x 75% = 72.75 runs. This number would be round off to the next whole number which is 73 runs in order to tie the game and score 1 more run to win the game (73 plus 1) = 74 to win
  1. If the team batting second gets to bat 4.5 overs or less and the rain allows no further play,, than the match is considered washout as both teams need to bat at least 5 overs in order to constitute a match.
