Youth (U15 and U17)

When you start college you don't need to stop playing club cricket!  New formats provide great opportunities for college students to play T20 cricket on Saturdays or on Wednesday or Thursday nights. Term 4 and Term 1 are run as separate competitions (approx 8 games each). These leagues will be regionally based to reduce travel -- excluding the Auckland finals for both the pre and post-Christmas competitions. Note: players need to be under 15, under 17 as at 1 April 2020.  

Registrations for the 2020/21 season are now open...

Special Twenty20 playing conditions of interest:

  • Music - The batting side is permitted to play music for the batters to walk on and off the field and during any breaks of play e.g. drinks break, innings break.
    This should not delay the game.
  • Bowling - To speed up games in T20 matches, bowling is required from one end. If required umpires can require shorter run-ups and other measures to speed up play. A minimum of 3 overs of spin bowling per innings.
  • Batting - Compulsory retirement of batters after 30 balls faced. i.e. wides and no balls are counted. 
  • Coaching - All Coaches are to have completed the Advanced Foundations Coaching Course.
  • Spirit of cricket - Manipulating batting so that batters deliberately get out (batting side) to bring back “better” batters or deliberately not getting batters out (bowling side) to stop “better” batters coming back, are both against the spirit of cricket.
