Player code of conduct: Last Man Stands FairPlay Standards Keeping T20 Fair and Fun for All
LMS seeks to foster a friendly atmosphere of fun and competition between all teams, officials and spectators involved.
Every player, official and spectator is responsible for ensuring that the atmosphere both on and off the field is one that promotes fun and fair play. Last Man Stands Cricket is a team sport and each individual is an important component in the success of their team and the tournament.
The object of LMS FairPlay Standards is to promote fair play, discipline and a sense of sportsmanship to ensure that all involved can compete and enjoy the game of Last Man Stands.
Cricket is known as the Gentleman's Game and we at LMS feel that it is important that the game be played in the right manner that embodies the Spirit of Cricket.
Last Man Stands advocates that players adhere to the below standards of conduct both on and off the field during LMS tournaments:
Know the Rules: Take time to understand all the unique rules of LMS completely before participating and help those new to the game in learning them. Anyone that plays a game of Last Man Stands agrees that their stats and rankings will appear on our website. All stats are the property of Last Man Stands.
Accept Decisions of Umpires and Officials: The Umpire's decision is final and cannot be disputed during the game. Concerns regarding umpiring decisions can be raised to LMS administrators after the match. Under no circumstances is a player to swear at or abuse the Umpire in any way whatsoever. The main aspect of LMS is to have fun, let's keep it that way.
Appealing: Only appeal if you genuinely believe that the batsman is out appealing consistently for any other reasons is not in the spirit of the game.
Control Emotions: Play to enjoy the game and the company of others. No verbal abuse directed at any individual or equipment abuse will be tolerated.
Save Time: LMS does have time restrictions in place to ensure fast and fun gameplay. Please adhere to these and look to save time where possible.
Respect Others: Treat all players and property as you would like to be treated. Encourage your teammates and bowlers and try to keep verbal attacks out of the game and avoid foul language. Vitally, remember without the opposition or umpire there is no game.
- Any form of man handling or threats on the field or sidelines will result in the player being banned for a minimum of three games. Repeated breach of the FairPlay standards will also result in players being banned.
- A player will be banned for life, for any violent conduct to another player, spectator or umpire. Criminal charges may also be laid.
- Teams that have players continually breaching the FairPlay standards, will also be asked to leave the league.
- Only an LMS Official or Captain/Team Organiser may escalate any issue regarding matters that they feel do not comply with the LMS FairPlay Standards to the LMS administrators. Therefore, please could all players with grievances please refer to their team organiser.
LMS FairPlay Examples:
The following areas regarding player behavior are to be noted in lieu of the LMS FairPlay Standards:
The use of offensive language - generally as a disparaging remark to an opposing player or toward an Umpire. This includes racial vilification (any act that is reasonably likely to threaten, disparage, vilify, offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or group based on skills, race, religion, descent, color or national or ethnic origin).
The questioning or disputing of the Umpire's decision - especially in an aggressive or sarcastic manner. This applies equally to dismissals and unsuccessful appeals as to the judgment of calls on no-balls, wides etc. Individuals entering the field of play without the Umpire's permission, disputing decisions on the field and interfering with the progress of the game.
An excessive number of frivolous appeals primarily aimed at pressuring and intimidating the Umpire into a favorable decision or to gain an undue advantage.
The actions of the dismissed batsman - in failing to leave the crease promptly on being given out and any equipment abuse such as banging the bat into the ground, against the wickets or against the fence etc. and/or throwing the bat or equipment during or after leaving the field of play.
"Send offs" - usually to a dismissed batsman by the bowler or a member of the fielding side. This can often spark or inflame a situation and lead to a more serious and unnecessary altercation.
Please note the above list is not exhaustive and merely serves as a guideline in terms of what can be deemed to be inappropriate conduct.
Such actions are clearly unacceptable and may incur penalties including the disqualification of the relevant team. LMS administrators will handle all matters fairly and on an objective basis and will consult all those concerned in the event of any issues relating to the FairPlay Standards.
If a player continues to breach code of conduct in any manner, despite warnings, this may result in disciplinary action against the player or the concerned team, including, but not limited to, suspension from a league or for a number of matches.
By participating in LMS all players and officials are deemed to have read and understood the LMS Rules and LMS FairPlay Standards and are expected to adhere to them.
