Amendments and Notes, and to achieve greater
clarity and simplicity.
The new Code of Laws was approved at an MCC Special
General Meeting on 21st November.
1992 A second edition of the 1980 Code was produced,
incorporating all the amendments which were approved
during the intervening twelve years. Many queries
on the Laws, which apply equally to women's cricket
as to men's, are sent to MCC for decision every
year. MCC, as the accepted Guardian of the Laws,
which can only be changed by the vote of two-thirds
of the Members at a Special General Meeting of
the Club, has always been prepared to answer the
queries and to give interpretations on certain
conditions, which will be readily understood.
(a) In the case of league or competition cricket,
the enquiry must come from the committee responsible
for organising the league or competition. In other
cases, enquiries should be initiated by a representative
officer of a club, or of an umpires' association
on behalf of his or her committee, or by a master
or mistress in charge of school cricket.
