The Spirit of Cricket

Cricket owes much of its appeal and enjoyment to the fact that it should be played not only according to the Laws but also within the Spirit of Cricket.
The major responsibility for ensuring fair play rests with the captains, but extends to all players, match officials, and, especially in junior cricket, teachers, coaches, and parents.
Respect is central to the Spirit of Cricket.
Respect your captain, teammates, opponents, and the authority of the umpires.
Play hard and play fair.
Accept the umpire’s decision.

Create a positive atmosphere by your own conduct, and encourage others to do likewise.
Show self-discipline, even when things go against you.
Congratulate the opposition on their successes, and enjoy those of your own team.
Thank the officials and your opposition at the end of the match, whatever the result.
Cricket is an exciting game that encourages leadership, friendship, and teamwork, which brings together people from different nationalities, cultures, and religions, especially when played within the Spirit of Cricket. 

Ontario Masters Softball Cricket Clubs has formulated the following playing conditions it deems necessary for the playing of softball cricket.
Should situation/s arise that are not covered partially or fully by the OMSCC playing conditions, the ICC Standard One-Day International Playing Conditions and the laws of cricket as per MCC shall be referred to.
It is the responsibility of all Managers and Captains to ensure that their team members are familiar with these playing conditions and fully adhere to them. By registering with OMSCC, every such individual agrees to abide by the rules and regulations of the league.
NOTE: Situations may arise that are either partially covered or not covered at all by these rules, and in such instance(s) OMSCC reserves the right to make the final decision(s) to address such situation.
(Exception—decision/s made by umpires in any game).
