Umpiring - A pleasant experience after all..

Waking up to a saturday morning umpiring experience can take a toll on you. Starting from friday evening, you are reminded by emails ,text messages, IEmails and a huge handbook to study with clauses and sub-clauses and amendments. Its an intimidating experience. Why not ? We read every week a story or two on how teams get on each other. Even before you play, you are penalized for some random act of god (pun intended).

YuME 2014 Fall Open Final rankings and 2014 Season Rankings

YuMe 2014 Fall Open final rankings are calculated after including forfiet penalities. For each forfiet game -1 DRR was applied to forfieting team. 2014 Season Rankings are calculated taking an average of 2014 Regular Season and Fall open rankings.

The 2014 Season rankings will be used as initial rankings for 2015 Season and New teams will be ranked at the bottom in the order they registered. Note that the Teams marked in red in season rankings have opted out for 2015 season.

We have included only those 95 teams which paid before the deadline.. so, we have 95 Teams and Group A will have a "Dummy Team" and all teams will get 4 points (and 0 DRR) in lieu of the missing team.

If you spot any errors or have any questions please open a ticket "COLA - General Query".. Please do NOT email.

CricBay 2014 in Numbers

This is a bird’s eye view of (approximately) what happened in 2014.  Note that I tried my best to look at numbers for the Calendar year (Games that happened between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014). I am not guaranteeing that this is 100% accurate, but it should be pretty pretty close enough.

Almost 3000 players batted, about 1900 bowled.. lots of runs and lots of wickets..
