STANDARD PROCEEDURES: As in all our Championships since 2009 the following rules apply for teams :
1. Team Composition : Students of the college only – though a maximum of 2 alumnus are allowed in the playing XI *
Students can be Undergrad, Grad, PhD & post-Doctoral Fellow.
Each team must have a minimum of 3 Undergrad students (except Thunderbird, a Grad school).
2. your club must be a Club Sport, or the process begun. If it is not, contact Lloyd Jodah for guidance
3. PROMOTION : without promotion of the game it would be “invisible cricket” with no value. As always American College Cricket is focused on making cricket visible in the college and mainstream media – all players, all teams are expected to do their part.
*except where school rules do not permit.
