Spirit of Cricket

"In addition to remaining responsible for the Laws of Cricket, MCC has also long believed that the game should be played in accordance with its traditional 'spirit'." So begins an article on "What is MCC Spirit of Cricket?"
ESCL would like to remind teams (and their captains in particular) of the importance of honouring that Spirit, whatever the circumstances.
May what remains of our current season be both competitive and sportsmanlike.

Bowling restrictions for the second half of the Season.

The Rule is 9 overs per bowler in 40 and 45 overs - OVERS PER BOWLER In 45/40 over matches the maximum number of overs a bowler may bowl is 9.

This is to confirm that it is 9 overs per bowler, it was thought that this would aid clubs lower down the league who struggle to find bowlers.

Payment for Teas

Nothing has changed regarding the payment for teas in the ESCL area. There is some confusion because if a club has a first XI in the SCL area, it falls to the home team there to meet the full cost of tea.

Next year, a decision will have to be made which system to adopt county-wide, but for the moment we have this split system.

Playing Conditions for new SCL in 2019

Dear Club,
The Adult Leagues Group would like to know what our recreational cricketers want to see from the new league in terms of playing conditions and associated matters. Therefore, we have created a survey designed to obtain as much feedback as possible. The link below will take you to the survey, which should take about 5 minutes to complete and will be open until 13th August.


Over the next few days, the link will be posted on the league website, social media and e-mailed directly to all registered Play Cricket users, but please also disseminate this e-mail throughout your membership. That way, everyone in your Club can have their say in the future direction of recreational cricket.

The feedback received will be used to inform the proposals that will be voted on by Clubs at the AGM in October.

Kind Regards,
(on behalf of the Adult Leagues Group) Gary Stanley, 07775 933 311; www.sussexcricket.co.uk



This summer, all over the county, we are inviting women to come along and #HaveAHit. This is an opportunity like never before for women who have never played cricket to just come along and have a go.
Women's Soft Ball Cricket is about getting out and playing with maximum fun and minimum fuss. No pads, no hard ball, no heavy bat, no head-scratching rules and definitely no judgment. It's a game for absolutely everybody, no matter their skill level, fitness, or age. This is an opportunity like never before, for more women who may have never played cricket to just come along and have a go. Attached are a couple of photos from the festival last Thursday I was talking about.
We promise a warm welcome, a free festival T-shirt, music and prosecco afterwards, what's not to like! There will be fast, fun matches with 6-8 in a team. No problem if you want to sign up on your own, we'll find a team for you. Minimum age is 13 but no maximum age. Supporters of all ages welcome. Bar and BBQ available.
