Spirit of Cricket


Each season one award is made to the club which contributes the most for "the Spirit of Cricket" across all four Premier grades. This is similar to the CV Club Championship, except that the "Spirit of Cricket" award has no "weighting" of points. Each team is assessed by the umpires in each match, receiving a rating out of 10, based on:

  1. Captains’ acceptance of his responsibility for his players’ behaviour,
  2. Team’s adherence to the principles of "the Spirit of Cricket" including respect for team-mates, opponents and the umpires’ role, and
  3. Co-operation/attitude of captains and players towards umpires and their role.

There is a mandatory deduction of three points per match of actual suspension for each player found guilty by the CV Tribunal.
