Discipline

A Statement by the League Committee. The game of cricket has long been known to epitomise the highest levels of conduct and sportsmanship. It is a competitive game to be played in an atmosphere of comradeship and enjoyed by players, umpires and spectators alike. However this pleasure is often spoilt by the thoughtless actions and sometimes bad behaviour of a few players. The following examples are known to have occurred and give rise for concern: -

Fieldsmen making ridiculous remarks about an umpire.
Fieldsmen swearing at a batsman in an attempt to break his concentration.
Fieldsman directing a batsman to the pavilion with abuse.
Batsman disputing an umpire's decision by remaining at the crease and making disparaging remarks to the umpire.
Batsmen on the way back to the pavilion banging the bat on the ground, swearing and throwing the bat on reaching the dressing room.
Such actions have made more than one umpire decide to give up umpiring - a loss the League can ill-afford.

Players must be capable of exercising self-discipline without the need for the Club or League administrators having to enforce codes of behaviour. Captains have a special responsibility to exercise control over their players in these matters. All concerned – players, captains, umpires and Club officials; can amicably settle the vast majority of such incidents before everyone leaves the ground. If however the dispute is not so resolved the Management Board will deal with the matter. The League Committee emphasise that:- BAD BEHAVIOUR IS NOT NECESSARY AND SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED. THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR GOOD BEHAVIOUR LIES WITH THE CAPTAINS AND THE CLUBS.
