H&SCC Selection Policy: Senior Cricket
The selection process for Senior Cricket will be carried out by a Selection Committee on a weekly basis during the course of the season. This Selection Committee will convene every Saturday evening at circa 8.00pm, or as close to this time as possible depending on circumstances.
The selection committee consists of the Captains and Vice-Captains of the 1st XI, 2nd XI, 3rd XI and Sunday Lions XI. The Director of Cricket, Senior Coach, or Club Chairman may also be co-opted onto the Selection Committee, or consulted on selection decisions as appropriate.
If one or more members of the Selection Committee are unable to meet at the appropriate time due to external circumstances such as holidays, logistical challenges, or other unavoidable commitments, they will be consulted on selection as best possible. Wherever possible a Captain/Vice-Captain from all sides should be present.
Sides are selected based on a number of criteria as follows:
Player Ability & Performance:
Attitude & Behaviour:
Following the completion of the selection process the committee will endeavour to inform players of their selection via text message, email, or phone call as appropriate. The Selection Committee will endeavour to have all players confirmed within 48 hours of the Selection Meeting.
Should any player wish to query their selection they are welcome to approach an appropriate Captain to discuss the matter.
The above guidelines form the framework that the Selection Committee will endeavour to operate within at all times, however as available playing resources vary during the course of the season, some compromises or flexibility are inevitable.
