Any amendments to the By-Laws and Playing Conditions that are not reflected in the PDF versions will be displayed below. Any amendments listed below will also be communicated to clubs separately.
17.0 - Allocation of Points
Rationale: Transpositional error. Was originally in SCA By-Laws and PC's 2017/18 edition.
Rationale: Transpositional error. Monetary penalty for forfeiture was originally in the 2017/18 version, however, with significant changes to the format of the 2018/19 edition, it was left out by accident.
36.0 Playing Apparel & Equipment
Rationale: Transpositional error. The SCA COM allow umpires to discern that a player older than 18 years of age can remove their helmet against slow bowling (not under 18 players). The way that it is currently written is ambiguous when compared with 36(2)(b)
Please note it is the umpires sole discretion to determine the competency of a batter to remove their helmet to slow bowlers.
