DISCIPLINARY ACTION: Actions with intent to cause physical harm

Portrait of Vasant Kumar

13 Aug 2014

Hello all,

There was an unacceptable incident that took place in a CT 2014 match played last weekend which is something that our community and league can do without. This was a situation of where one playerm, in retaliation to provocation by another player,  acted with the perceived intent to cause physical harm . Such actions have the potential to some day escalate into real physical violence, something that we never ever want to see in CricBay.  Secondly these can lead to external entities taking action that can have very serious consequences to the individuals concerned  and CricBay. So this has forced CricBay to take disciplinary action on those players

IMPORTANT: CricBay Policy Change: $20 co-pay for non-reserved pool team

Portrait of Ciby Thomas

24 Jul 2014

Hello CricBay Teams,

    As you all know, we continually strive to make this league equitable and fair to all the participants. Every time we realize something is not fair we act on it and address it. CricBay teams are made of two types of teams, those that pay for the grounds (to the tune of $1000 per year) and others who play unreserved. This has gone one for 3-4 years since we introduced reserved pool. We currently have 68 teams in the reserved pool. We believe that it is not fair that some teams pay for the grounds and others don't. So to fix this inequity we are instituting a co-pay process for teams that are not in the reserved pool.

2014 CricBay Regular Season Finals, Awards and other fun details

Portrait of Sheshu Shenoy

15 Jul 2014

2014 CricBay Regular Season is probably the most brutal Season we have had. Consider the numbers:

  • 100 Teams
  • 722 Games (excluding semis and finals),
  • 82000 runs scored by batters (3550 4s and 1283 6s)
  • 22630 overs (where 1282 were maidens and almost 11000 extras)

and one hell of a second round of Round robin just in case RR1 was not hard enough.

8 Teams have survived this and entered the finals. It’s time we celebrate them and the league we all love. And what better way than show up for finals and cheer the teams, mingle with fellow CricBayers, hang out with volunteers and generally have a good time. Food will be provided, there will be a jumper on field to keep the kids happy and hence, please bring your families too.

Every all star player (including the reserves) will get a badge on his profile.. C and VC will also get that additional badge..  12 each will play the game with 11 on the field at any time. This is a work in progress and we will keep tweaking it in future seasons based on recommendations and feedback.
