Qualification for Mid Season Final and Order of Grades

Under By-Law 11a ODA and ODB are rated higher that Fifth to Seventh Grade and this may have an effect on player qualification.  Please ensure you avoid disappointment and ensure that all your players in the one day finals are correctly qualified.

Notice from Cricket West - Hot Weather

The current Perth forecast for Saturday afternoon is for 39 degrees between 2pm – 5pm. I recognise each association has varying rules regarding heat and will act within those rules. I have attached our current extreme weather guidelines for heat which I encourage you to familiarise yourself with. There is a specific Heat Stress Rating Index (HSRI) calculator included for senior cricket to guide appropriate action on or prior to match days. Reminding teams of the risks associated with heat and the options available to them such as extra or extended drinks breaks would be helpful for all players and their safety.
