2011, 4/16-17, Annual Peace Cup


2011 Peace Cup Reports:

Saturday, April 16.
The Taiwan Southerners Cricket Club topped the group at the Peace Cup in Chaiyi City yesterday. They beat both the Scunners and the Formosa Cricket Club (FCC) with the second match proving the decider. The FCC won the toss and batted. They faced a stern examination from the pace of Jeff Black and Roy Horgan. Paul Turner and Timmy Chang kept their heads and saw off the first six overs without loss. The shackles were broken by Turner who smashed fourteen runs off Prabhat Sahu's first over. When Graham Terblanche had him trapped LBW for 30, the match changed. In the following overs, the spin pair of Hercules Malan and Sahu brought the run rate down. Chang (30) and Heinrich Nothnagel (39*) hit out toward the end, but the total of 122 seemed a little below par with some inspirational fielding from TSCC stalwart Eben Haarhoff.

TSCC struggled early under lights with openers Salim and Nothnagel bowling a consistent line and length at pace. Terblanche and captain Duane Christie were dismissed and Nothnagel picked up two wickets in two balls for the second time in the day. To the fore came the experienced Andrew Carrick (80 from 49) who blazed away, hitting some magnificent straight shots. With able support from Shane Daly they worked over the remaining bowlers to see the TSCC home in the final over.

TSCC put on 188/4 (Terblanche 53, Black 80) which was too much for the Scunners in the morning match. The Scunner reply was a spirited 115/7 (Chad Zinovich 37) but cut short by Black's bowling (2/12).

The FCC also beat the Scunners in a tighter match. Alan Cooke (24), Andre Cremer (28) and Charl De Villiers (61) pushed them to 149/8, but patient batting from Turner (56) and Alok Gupta (18) got them to the target in the last over.

The Scunners will take on the FCC in a semi final today, with the winner taking on the TSCC. Taiwan Cricket thanks Chiayi's Calgary Restaurant (卡加利美式餐廳) for their hospitality.

Sunday, April 17.
The Taiwan Southerners Cricket Club backed up yesterday's performance at the Peace Cup in Chaiyi City. They crossed blades with the Formosa Cricket Club (FCC) once again and proved far too strong. Their victory was founded upon the ever patient batting of Jeff Black (67*) and useful contributions from captain Duane Christie (28), Graham Terblanche (26) and Andrew Carrick (23).

FCC captain Salim opened the bowling in a generous fashion allowing 16 runs, but his new ball partner, Ric McGrail tidied things up by bowling Christie around his legs. And Salim amended for his wayward opening by bowling Terblanche shortly afterward.

Dhananjay Magar and Ashish Tripathi bowled tidily enough, but the chance to restrict the target burst through the hands of the FCC fielders with a tough caught and bowled chance and were denied when Black was caught on the boundary only for the fielder to run into the fence. Black made them pay with some mighty blows over the mid on fence.

A target of 173 placed a lot of pressure on the FCC top order and it showed. Timmy Chang was caught behind after a brilliant dive by keeper Shane Daly. Paul Turner (23) was able to hold up his end and Heinrich Nothnagel (20) showed some intent by hitting the first change bowlers. If his dismissal was seen as the end of the match by some, Magar had other ideas. With Tripathi showing able support, he launched into the offspin of Hercules Malan for a giant, straight six and compiled 52*. But the TSCC were never again placed under much pressure and won by 15 runs.

The FCC steamrolled the Scunners in the semifinal. After six overs the Taichung team had just ten runs and two men back in the hutch. It didn't get much better for them with Nothnagel (2/12) retiring Chad Sinovich with a nasty blow to the abdomen. The Scunners finished with just 88. Timmy Chang (26) led the reply and the FCC won in nine overs.

Stand-in captain Eben Haarhoff received the Peace Cup for the TSCC for the second time and expressed his delight at the return of Turner, the elder statesman of Taiwan Cricket. "It's good to see you back, Uncle Paul!"

Peace Cup

 The laws of cricket as stipulated by the MCC will apply unless otherwise stated here.

These rules are generally applied to suit the grounds played on. Please refer to individual tournament conditions for specific rules.

No Ball (Law 24).

A no ball shall be called any time a delivery's first bounce is on the playing surface either beside or in front of the batting mat (this is an addition to the rules for a no ball).


Wide (Law 25).

Wides are to be judged according to lines painted on the mat on the off side and anything down the leg side (this is an addition to the rules for a wide). 


Free Hit after a Foot Fault No Ball (Law 24.5).
When a bowler bowls a foot fault no ball the subsequent delivery shall be a 'Free Hit'. A batsman may not be out bowled, stumped, caught or LBW on a free hit. A batsman may be run out on a free hit (and all other forms of dismaissal still apply). There shall be no free hit awarded for no balls on height or 'off the mat'.
Dangerous Bowling (Law 42. 6a&b).
Every delivery that bounces over shoulder height shall be called a no ball. Each delivery that does not bounce and is above waist height shall be called a no ball.
NOTE: Generally speaking a delivery that bowls a batter (without having been deflected) should not be called no-ball.

Over-Rate Penalties (Law 42.9).
Five penalty runs shall be awarded to the batting team's score for overs not bowled within the allotted time if the umpires agree that the bowling team has been wasting time. Five runs can be added to any over that does not start before the scheduled time.

Time Wasting Penalties (Law 42.10).
Umpires can award five penalty runs to the bowling team's score for batsmen who are time wasting. Batsmen are expected to be ready for the start of a new over as soon as the bowler is ready.


Over Restrictions.

A bowler may only bowl a maximum of one fifth (1/5) of the overs available to his team. If the number of overs is not divisible by five then the maximum is overs divided by 5 rounded up. The remainder overs is the number of bowlers that can complete one less than the maximum overs.

Restrictions apply for the entire innings on the maximum number of fielders allowed outside the inner ring. For the first third of the overs in an innings a maximum of two (2) fielders are allowed outside the circle. For the rest of the match a maximum of five (5) fielders are allowed outside. Batting and bowling powerplay overs are added for matches of more than 20 overs. Maximum three (3) fielders are allowed outside the circle during both powerplays.

A minimum of ten (10) minutes must be allocated between matches for any individual team. A minimum of five (5) minutes must be allocated between any matches.


For play delays due to weather, light, absent players (seven players are required for a team to be recognised) or other conditions the following measures shall be applied:

  • No overs may be deducted from a match once it has begun (a ball has been bowled).
  • If a semi final or a final is scheduled to start then it shall start at the earliest opportunity. Any uncompleted games will be abandoned.
  • If a match has been started (a ball has been bowled) it shall be completed at the earliest opportunity.
  • No match may begin more than 60 minutes after its start time. Finals are exempt from this rule, but must start with enough time for the match to be completed.
  • If there is a delay then all subsequent scheduled matches can be reduced in duration to compensate. Both teams need to have had the opportunity to face five (5) overs for a match to be completed

Tournament/League Process.

For Group Matches: Teams will advance from the group stage(s) based on their rank. A team with more points from game results shall have a higher rank. Where points are equal between two or more teams, ranks shall be determined by the first of the following conditions that has a clear winner.

  • Coin Toss. A team that wins a coin toss (or similar) shall have a higher rank.

Where more than two teams are on equal points the above system shall be used only once. In the first instance that any team (or teams) is found to be ranked higher (or lower) that ranking shall apply. But the ranked team is not removed from further considerations. The teams that have not yet been ranked shall continue to proceed through the list of conditions. Each condition can only be applied once and in its correct order.
