Information for Coaches and Managers

Rules and scoring


A Scoring Guide is available.  Paper Scorebooks are included in your team kits.


MyCricket Live Scorer is the preferred App used by the Club for scoring

The MyCricket Scoring App is free and provides a user friendly way to score games electronically. 

Electronic scoring is not compulsory.  If you wish to continue using scorebooks that is okay!  However, you will need to transfer the information from the scorebook into MyCricket within 7 days of the completion of the match.

The NXcricket cricket score book app is available for purchase on ipad, iphone and ipod touch.  I believe it’s around $9 through the app store.


NXcricket is a really user friendly scoring app.  It summarises all information entered to really simplify the process for Coaches and Managers to then enter data into MyCricket (requirement for U11 and up age groups).  Additionally, it has the capacity to email all results and stats to each team member after the game.  There are a heap of others interesting features of this app including – score projection, run rate required, worm and wagon wheel diagrams to name but a few.
