Over 40 Senior Cricket
Over 40 Senior cricket is for cricketers aged 40 and above. Matches are played every second Sunday from 10am at each club’s main turf ground, meaning the conditions and facilities on offer are excellent. Games are played in a 40-over format and spikes are mandatory to play in this grade, as with all matches on turf pitches.
The normal rules of cricket are followed with some minor changes: batsmen must retire after 50 runs (they can resume their innings once all the other batsman have been dismissed) and bowlers can bowl a maximum of eight overs.
After initial club registration fees are paid, we provide a Hawks playing shirt and cap. All other equipment is to be supplied by the player. This grade has a designated umpire to adjudicate.
O40 Cricket is played competitively and in good spirit – you will find most sledges will come from your own teammates rather than the opposition! So if you are new to the game, coming back from a break or just want to play on turf, this is your opportunity.
For further information, please contact our senior vice-president Shawn Riddell 0457 875 308.
Our O40 Senior teams are selected on a first-in basis (squad of 15), so please get your registration in asap.
