Umpiring and Scoring
Information for umpires and scorers in Queensland
Cricket has a long standing history, which has been documented thanks to the hard work and dedication of scorers.
Scorers form a unique relationship with the opposition scorer and the umpires to manage the game. This involves the recording of all batting, bowling, sundries and statistics to ensure the game runs smoothly.
Queensland Cricket combines with the Queensland Cricket Scorer’s Association to train and develop scorers. Scorers that show potential have the opportunity to advance to the elite pathway system and score at matches including the KFC Challenge, State Country Championships, Australian Country Championships, Queensland 2nd XI, Queensland Fire, BBL, Marsh One-Day Cup, Sheffield Shield and Test matches.
The Queensland Cricket Scorer’s Association membership is free and always looking for scorers at all levels throughout the state. If you are interested in becoming a scorer, please email Penny Adams (Secretary, QCSA) at email@example.com. You can also follow QCSA on Facebook.
Umpires play an important role in all levels of cricket and without them, well it wouldn’t be cricket. Umpires are an impartial figure who is responsible for upholding the Laws of Cricket. There have been countless matches documented in history where critical decisions made by umpires have ultimately decided the outcome of the match.
As such, the training of umpires is crucial to the success of our beloved game. Queensland Cricket is responsible for fostering the development of all umpires across the state from grass roots level, as well as providing a career path to state and international level.
The MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) are the custodians of the Laws of Cricket, writing and interpreting the Laws which are applicable from grassroots through to international play. For more information on the Laws of Cricket head to www.lords.org/mcc/about-the-laws-of-cricket or download the Laws of Cricket app on IOS or Android.
