Laws of cricket and local rules

Through our dedication to the Laws and Spirit of Cricket, we strive to instil a sense of fair play in all players.  But, above all else, we want all players, coaches, managers, parents and spectators to have fun while playing or watching cricket at our club.


The rules and format for games vary for each competition.  Rules can change slightly from year to year and differ between age groups and competitions.  It is important, therefore, that everyone reads and understands the rules that apply to your competition.


The rules for summer competitions (Super 8s through to under 15 and Open) run by MSW can be downloaded here.


The rules for teams that play in the winter competitions run by the Warehouse Cricket Association can be downloaded here.
