With the Cricket Southern Bayside T20 Competition kicking off this Tuesday night, we felt it was important to highlight some important information about the competition.
To ensure minimal travel for players and supporters, we have geographically aligned the qualifying pools as much as possible. We hope that this will also ensure the continuation of local rivalries which wouldn’t normally take place given the promotion/relegation structure of the Saturday competitions.
Aspendale, Bonbeach, Chelsea, St Brigid’s/St Louis.
Mordialloc, Old Mentonians, Parkdale, Parkdale United.
Bayside, Beaumaris, Cheltenham, Mentone.
Carnegie, Clayton District, Monash Tigers Academy, Murrumbeena.
Maccabi AJAX, Middle Park, South Caulfield, South Yarra.
Brighton District, Bentleigh, Hampton, McKinnon.
The top placed team in each of the Qualifying Pools will advance to the Quarter Finals. Two ‘wildcards’ teams will also advance to take up the 7th and 8th position. The wildcard teams will be decided by matches won and net run rate.
The Quarter Finals draw will take place on Wednesday 11th December by lottery. The Semi Finals draw will take place on Wednesday 19th December by lottery.
The draw for home field advantage for the Final will take place on Wednesday 15th January.
Each team is permitted to play one (1) ‘Marquee Player’ per match. A Marquee Player is defined as a player who currently plays Saturday cricket with another club (and would typically require a clearance to be eligible for selection in Saturday/Sunday competitions).
The process to submit a permit for a Marquee Player is:
A club may have multiple marquee players throughout the tournament, but only one can play in each match.
A marquee player will receive a player point allocation and must fit into a 21 point cap for any team.
Super Over Procedure
A minimum of one umpire will be allocated to every match.
Matches with just one CSB umpire in attendance will require a member of the batting side to stand at square leg.
