It is umpires responsibility to check that CIL provided balls have been
used in both the innings. Always new innings should start with new
ball. If new balls have been used in the middle of an innings (ball lost,
broken) by the playing team(s), please notify CIL on the same.
In case of a potential or real dispute regarding a hit for 4/6 runs
and/or a catch at the boundary, fielders are advised to stay put and
help the umpire make the decision by holding their ground. Benefit
of doubt shall always go to the batsman.
There is no place for any act of violence on the field of play. CIL
reserves the right to decide the penalty against the team(s) and/or
player(s) and/or umpire(s).
The neutral umpires are empowered to oversee the behavior of the
teams during the game. In case of dissent shown by any player during
the game such as using abusive language, fighting on the field, too
many appeals to the umpires, vehemently disagreeing with the
umpires decision, the umpires reserve the right to call the captain of
the team involved in such an act and warn the particular player
involved. If the umpire gives 2 warnings to a player and if it continues
for the 3rd time, the player would be sent out of the game and he
cannot be replaced by a substitute nor can he bat if he hasnt done
so already. In case of the team being a batting team and if the
batsman has already finished his batting and if such a scenario has
been reported by the umpire, the player will be banned from playing
the next game. If it is a batting team and if it is during a playoff game,
the team will be penalized 1 over of play.

It is umpires responsibility to call both the captains for toss (5
minutes before the start time) and ensure there are no delays to
start the game as per the schedule. IN case an umpire did not arrive
before or on time of the game start, his team will be penalized. CIL
advice both team to file a complaint on Umpires availability.
The umpire(s) may intervene at any time and it is the responsibility of
the captain(s) to take action when required. Umpires must intervene
for:
o Deliberate wasting of time by either team.
o Damaging the pitch by either team.
o Dangerous or unfair bowling by either team. Batsman can
report to both umpires if the bowling action looks like chucking
and umpire can review the action and make a final call if the
bowler can continue bowling or not.
o Tampering with the ball by either team.
o Any other action that the umpire(s) may consider to be unfair.
In case of time delays, when the ball is lost or a player is injured, it is
the duty of the neutral umpire to make note of the time. It is a good
practice for both captains to also make a note and remind the
neutral umpire. Either way, the neutral umpires decision, as in all
cases, will be final or no requests can be made to reconsider time
delay issues.
Umpires are solely responsible to ensure that no side intentionally or
unintentionally causes significant delay to the game in progress.
Umpires should also take the delays due to rain, bad light, lost ball,

and injury on the field into consideration before making a decision if
a bowling side needs to be penalized for slow over rate.

In the absence of an assigned umpire the teams have an option to


provide their own umpires, agreeable to the opposite captains, and
play the game.
Once a batsman is declared out by the umpire, umpire can revoke
the decision before batsman gets out of the field or the fielding
captain can recall the batsman.
Umpires MUST sign a completed scorecard and ensure that both
captains also sign it.
The square-leg umpire shall be a playing member of the batting team
(unless there are 2 neutral umpires from the designated umpiring
team)
If the square-leg umpire from batting team appears to have made a
clear error in judgment, then the official CIL umpire has the authority
to reverse that decision. If the official umpire finds the square leg
umpire to be incompetent, he may request to have him replaced
Umpires can change position between each over (this is not
mandatory CIL rule) and this can be decided based on their ease.
If a game is played under protest, this should be mentioned on the
report. Any and all other issues (e.g., delays, misconduct, umpire
incompetence, smoking etc.) must also appear on the score sheet.
