These were important issues so thank you to RCC players who replied to the survey. Additional information from the AGM is that the New Laws of Cricket will apply this season.

The same applies for promotion and relegation play-off matches. 3. Bowling restrictions. Bowlers are restricted to one-third of the total overs in the innings, (rounded [...]
