- Reg 13.4, 13.5 and 13.6 - The term "Match Results" should be replaced by the term "Match Abstracts" and be tightly defined.
- Reg 13.8 and 13.8.1 - Toughen up the language in Failure to Notify Scores or Enter Match Results). Add warnings about audits, fines, points loss and disqualification.
WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?
Strengthening the rules and emphasizing the importance about notifying scores and match results.
This is a response to a very serious problem that threatens the integrity of each and every competition that the Association runs.
Correct and timely entry of scores, results and team lists is needed to stop deliberate misreporting. Delayed entry can lead to things like adding a few runs here and there to shade bonus points or adding a player appearance to dodgy up a finals eligibility.
Administration of this issue needs to be a higher priority for the Management Committee. (That's not really a "rules issue"...)
There are administrative proposals coming which will address this issue.

The term "match abstracts" is already in the glossary. It could be revised to include Captains Reports.
