4.  It is hoped that sufficient names would be submitted so that two teams could be selected for the game.

6.  Names must be submitted one week before the event date to the coordinator of the city hosting the tournament.  In case the coordinator can not raise two teams on the day of the event then
he can include more players based on the other attendees assembled at the grounds who show an interest in participating  so that each team will have 11 players.

8.  In the future it is proposed that as in the regular quadrangular a coordinating committee would be formed representing each city.

10.  The game will start at 2 p.m. 

11. The Yellow Nivia heavy tennis ball for cricket would be used in all tournaments. If the ball is changed, it must be done at least two months before the start of the tournament and with the consent of coordinators of all the participating teams. If a ball to be used is agreed upon per rules above, then that ball would be used on all tournaments there after. If the ball being used is unavailable at a reasonable price, then the coordinators of the four teams shall select a new ball for future tournaments.

12.  Each team is restricted to a maximum of 15 overs or higher  in the ratio of  15/11 x  A (Where A is the number of players in a team) Eg. If there are 14 players in a team then the total number of overs for each team will be restricted to 18 overs.

13.  Each bowler is restricted to a maximum of 3 overs per innings or 3/11 x A, which will be 4 overs per bowler (One over shall consist of six deliveries).

14. Batting would be from the same side of the wicket for 5 consecutive overs.  At the end of each over, bowlers would change as usual at the bowling end and the batsman would switch too. The same procedure would be repeated for the next 5 overs after switching ends for batting and bowling.

15.  Each team shall divide their players into pairs for batting.


16.  Each pair will bat for 2 overs.  If one person gets out within the allocated 2 overs then he or she will be replaced by one player from the next pair who will play the remainder of the balls of the first pair and then the allocated 2 overs for them. 
In order to get a fair distribution it is encouraged that each person  bat for a maximum of 6 balls.


17.  Deliveries which are wider than one and half feet on leg side and two feet on the off side shall be considered wide and one run awarded to the batting team for each of such deliveries, and one additional delivery awarded to the bowler for each of such deliveries.

18. For each wide ball a run and any runs completed by the batsman or a boundary allowance shall be scored as wide balls.  All runs resulting from a wide ball shall be debited against the bowler and one additional delivery shall be added for each wide ball. [ICC Rule 25:6]

19.  The following rules would apply to No- Balls: [ICC Rule 25:6]

  • Front foot of a bowler is completely outside the batting crease or is outside the boxed area of the pitch. [ICC Rule 24:5,I]
  • Back foot lands in line outside continuation of the pitch. [ICC Rule 24:5,ii]  The committee of captains shall demarcate this area.  This committee shall also have the right to change this rule to suit the community’s welfare.
  • Bent elbow while delivering the over arm ball. [ICC Rule 24:5,3]
  • Balls above the shoulder of the batsman. [ICC Rule 42:6,a]
  • Damaging the pitch after one warning. . [ICC Rule 42:11,12]
  • Balls passes or would have passed on the full above waist height. [ICC Rule 42:6,b]


20. For each No ball a run and any runs completed by the batsman or a boundary allowance shall be credited to the striker if ball has been struck by the bat and one additional delivery shall be added for each no ball. [ICC Rule 25:6]

21.  A Free Hit will be allowed  after a foot-fault no ball... the delivery following a no ball called for a foot fault (Law 24.5) shall be a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it. If the delivery for the free hit is not a legitimate delivery (any kind of no ball or a wide ball) then the next delivery will become a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it. 
For any free hit, the striker can be dismissed only under the circumstances that apply for a no ball, even if the delivery for the free hit is called wide ball. 
The umpires will signal a free hit by (after the normal No Ball signal) extending one arm straight upwards and moving it in a circular motion. [ICC Rule 24.2]

22.   A batsman shall be deemed out if:

  • He is bowled (bails must fall off). [ICC Rule 30]
  • LBW, if we have neutral umpires.  In such an event an LBW shall be given only if the ball lands within the line of the stumps and at least one foot of the batsman is within the batting crease. [ICC Rule 36]
  • Stumped for being outside the crease while the ball is still live or until the ball is returned to the bowler for his next delivery. [ICC Rule 39]
  • Hit wicket [ICC Rule 35]
  • Caught off the bat or the region of the hand restricted from the wrist to the tips of the fingers. [ICC Rule 32]
  • Run out. [ICC Rule 38]

23.    In the event of substitution on the field  New Player (reserve) may not bat, bowl, keep wicket or act as captain. The original player may return if he has recovered. To be able to do this umpires should be consulted before he joins the team for fielding. A  captain can not object to  the substitution or where the fielder stands.  If a fielder fails to take the field with his side at the start of the match or at any later time, or leaves the field during a session of play, the umpire shall be informed of the reason for his absence, and he shall not thereafter come on to the field during a session of play without the consent of the umpire.
24.  If a batsman "retires" (usually due to injury) and cannot return, he is actually "not out" and his retirement does not count as a dismissal, though in effect he has been dismissed because his innings is over. Substitute batsmen are not allowed.
In the event of an injured batsman being fit to bat but not to run, the umpires and the fielding captain may allow another member of the batting side to be a runner. The runner's only task is to run between the wickets instead of the injured batsman. The runner is required to wear and carry exactly the same equipment as the incapacitated batsman. It is possible for both batsmen to have runners.
25.  ICC rules shall apply to matters not covered in theses rules.
