LAW 15 - INTERVALS

Law 15 shall apply subject to the following:

15.1Law 15.5 - Changing agreed times for intervals - Interval between Innings
If the innings of the team batting first is completed prior to the scheduled time for the interval, the interval shall take place immediately and the innings of the team batting second will commence correspondingly earlier. In circumstances where the side bowling first has not completed the allotted number of overs by the scheduled or re-scheduled cessation time for the first innings, the umpires shall reduce the length of the interval by the amount of time that the first innings over-ran. The minimum time for the interval in an uninterrupted match will be 15 minutes.

Following a lengthy delay or interruption prior to the completion of the innings of the team batting first, the Match Referee may, at his discretion, further reduce the interval between innings to not less than 10 minutes.

Such discretion should only be exercised after determining the adjusted overs per side based on a 20 minute interval. If having exercised this discretion, the rescheduled finishing time for the match is earlier than the latest possible finishing time, then these minutes should be deducted from the length of any interruption during the second innings before determining the overs remaining.

15.2 Law 15.9 - Intervals for drinks

15.2.1There will be two time-outs of 2 minutes 30 seconds in duration in each innings. The time-outs are to allow the teams to re-group tactically. Umpires and players must start to move back into their positions after 2 minutes in order to resume play when the countdown clock reaches zero seconds.

15.2.2Drinks may be brought out on to the field during the time-out. At other times, an individual player may be given a drink either on the boundary edge or at the fall of a wicket on the field, provided that no playing time is wasted. No other drinks shall be taken onto the field without the permission of the umpires. Any player taking drinks onto the field shall be dressed in proper cricket attire (subject to the wearing of a bib as referred to in the note to clause 2.2.3).

15.2.3Subject to clauses 15.2.4 and 15.2.8 below, the above-mentioned time-outs will occur in each innings of matches which are not Interrupted (such that the scheduled number of overs in respect of such innings remains 20) at the following times: (a) at the end of either the 6th,7th, 8th or 9th over at the election of the fielding team and (b) at the end of either the 13th, 14th 15th or 16th over at the election of the batting team.

15.2.4If there is a stoppage in play (whether for a wicket or injury or any other reason) during an over once a time-out has been requested pursuant to clause 15.2.5 below or the 9th or 16th over if the relevant time-out has not yet been taken, then the umpires shall, if they believe that it will speed up the game, not wait for the end of the over and may immediately call the time-out.

15.2.5Each time-out should be called by only either (a) the captain of either team or (b) the batsmen at the wicket (as appropriate in accordance with clause 15.2.3 (a) and (b) respectively) notifying one of the two on field umpires or the fourth umpire, in each case before the bowler starts his run up to deliver the final ball. Any notification once the first delivery stride has taken place will not be validand the captain will be asked if he wants the time out to take place after the end of the following over. If either the fielding captain or the batsmen respectively does not make an election, the umpires will call the time-out at the end of the 9th and 16th over respectively.

For the sake of clarity, no other team representative is permitted to advise or request a time-out other than the captains of either team or batsmen at the wicket.

15.2.6The umpires will clearly signal the time-out by making the sign of a ‘T’ with their arms.

15.2.7In any match which is interrupted (such that the scheduled number of overs in respect thereof is less than 20) then the time-outs will occur as follows:

Scheduled Number of Overs

Earliest Fielder Time out

(End of over)

If the scheduled number of overs in the innings in an interrupted match is 14 overs or less, there will be no time-outs. Further more following a lengthy delay or interruption prior to any of the time-outs, the Match Referee may, at his discretion, cancel all of the remaining time-outs. 

15.2.8If in any innings the batting team is dismissed before a scheduled time-out then there will be no such time-out in respect of such innings.
