After the ECA Rules meeting was held in August 2017, Cricket Australia (CA) released a number of changes to the CA Youth Pace Bowling Guidelines (Guidelines).  The Guidelines form the basis of ECA Rule 3.21 which limit the number of overs bowled by under-age medium pace or faster bowlers in a spell and in a day. 

The Guidelines can be found on the CA website: http://community.cricket.com.au/coach/training-session-ideas/pace-bowling-guidelines

 The limit of maximum consecutive overs in any one spell and maximum daily quotas to be bowled by under-age medium pace or faster bowlers are as follows:

Age Group

Consecutive Overs

Daily Quota

Under 19

20

Under 17

Under 15

Under 13

Clubs are requested to ensure their captains are aware of the above bowling restrictions. 

This information will be forwarded to the ECA Umpires.
