A Division Draw

B Division Draw

A Division

Senior Primary Div A Age Year 6-8
Length of Wicket 22 yards 
Game Duration * 20 overs for each side 
Start of Play * 4:00pm - 4:30; Fridays 
Boundary Size * 35 to 40 meters 

General Teams shall have not less than 7 players and not more than 10. The playing number is 8 (This is non negotiable). Umpires are the sole judge of whether play should be abandoned or suspended due to rain or unsuitable weather. In exercising such judgement the most important consideration is the health and safety of the players. Any team that cannot field at least 7 players within 15 minutes after the scheduled start of play defaults (loses) the game. A team may only second players into their team if they are genuinely and temporarily short of players. Teams may not replace available players within their team for player/s outside of their team. Any seconded players must not be from a higher grade or division and they are only allowed to play with the consent of the opposition coach. This consent should not be unreasonably withheld. Batting Maximum number of batsmen: 8 Batsmen retire immediately after the ball upon which they reach (or exceed) 100 runs UNLESS all but one of the team's other batsmen have been dismissed. Batsmen retiring upon reaching 100 can only return to bat again if all but one of the team's other batsmen have been dismissed or retired at 100. In such case if there is more than one batsmen who was retired at 100 then the retired batsmen return in the order that they were retired. Batsmen may be retired before reaching 100. If so, they may return to bat after all other team members have batted and must return to bat before any batsman who has retired at 100 returns. If there is more than one batsman who has retired before reaching 100 then such retired batsmen return in the order that they retired. The innings is complete at the end of 20 overs or earlier if all but one of the batsmen have been dismissed. If the batting team has 10 players scoring stops as soon as there have been 6 wickets. However play continues until the next wicket in order to give the 10th player a bat. The team batting second bats out its complete innings whether or not it has exceeded the oppositions score. Any batsman that scores 35+ runs must not bat in the top 4, the following game, or before the 15th over of the innings. Whatever comes first. 

This rule will not be played during the semi final or final part of the competition.
