              The Playing Conditions for First Class Cricket as they
              relate to matches in the 2019 County Championship will
              apply, with the following exceptions:

        2     Law 2 – The umpires

        2.1   In all circumstances, use of floodlights does not
              preclude the application of County Championship
              Playing Condition 2.5.

        2.2   In floodlit matches, the floodlights will be turned on at
              the interval between innings or at 7.30pm (6.30pm for
              matches in September), whichever is the earlier. If during
              a floodlit match, in the opinion of the Umpires, natural
              light is deteriorating to an unsuitable level, they may
              authorise the home authority to turn on the floodlights
              so that the match can continue in acceptable
              conditions. Once the floodlights have been turned on,
              they will remain on for the duration of the game.

              At day matches where the home authority has confirmed
              prior to the commencement of the match that floodlights
              are available, if in the opinion of the Umpires, natural
              light has deteriorated to an unsuitable level, they may
              authorise the home authority to turn on the floodlights
              so that the match can continue in acceptable
              conditions.

              In the event of floodlight malfunction or if the floodlights
              cannot be used for safety reasons with resultant loss of
              time, then Royal London One-Day Cup Playing
              Condition 12.2.2 shall apply as appropriate.

                                                                             67

              result. If the par score is equalled then scores are tied
              (see 16.5, 16.6, 16.7 and 16.8 below). If after the restart
              of play it is discovered that the wrong Duckworth/Lewis
              target has been set the faulty target shall stand.

       16.4 If a match is abandoned before it has been played to a
              conclusion and before the team batting second has
              received its allotted number of overs (providing that it
              has received not less than 10 overs in a Group match,
              20 overs in play-offs, semi-finals and final), the result
              shall be decided by the Duckworth/Lewis method.

       16.5 In the event of the scores being tied in a Group Stage
              match when the Duckworth/Lewis method has been
              used, the match is tied and each team will be awarded
              one point.

       16.6 In the event of the scores being tied in a play-off, semi-
              final or final when the Duckworth/Lewis method has
              been used, no account shall be taken of wickets lost.
              The teams shall compete in a Super Over to determine
              the winner. The following procedure will apply should
              the provision for a Super Over be adopted in any
              match.

       16.6.1 Subject to weather conditions the Super Over will take
              place at a time to be determined by the umpires. In
              normal circumstances it shall commence 10 minutes
              after the conclusion of the match.

        16.6.2 The Super Over will take place on the pitch allocated for
               the match (the designated pitch) unless otherwise                     3
               determined by the umpires in consultation with the

                                                                             Playing Conditions – Royal London One-Day Cup
               ground authority and the umpires.

        16.6.3 The umpires shall stand at the same end as that in which
               they finished the match.

        16.6.4 In both innings of the Super Over, the fielding side shall
               choose from which end to bowl.

        16.6.5 Only nominated players for the main match excluding
               any player that has been replaced, and including any
               replacement players may participate in the Super Over.
               Should any player (including the batsmen and bowler)
               be unable to continue to participate in the Super Over
               due to injury, illness or other wholly acceptable reason,
               the relevant Laws and Playing Conditions as they apply
               in the main match shall also apply in the Super Over.

        16.6.6 Any unserved Penalty time at the end of the main match
               shall be carried forward to the Super Over.

        16.6.7 Each team’s over is played with the same fielding
               restrictions as apply for Powerplay 3 in a normal Royal
               London One-Day Cup match.

        16.6.8 The team batting second in the match will bat first in the
               Super Over.

        16.6.9 The Umpires shall select a ball from the box of spare
               balls which shall be used for both overs of the Super
               Over. The ball to be used shall not be a new ball and
               should have the apparent wear characteristics of a ball
               that has had between 5 and 20 overs of usage. For the
               avoidance of doubt, a ball used in the main match shall
               not be used in the Super Over. If the ball needs to be
               changed, then playing conditions as stated for the main
               match shall apply.

        16.6.10 The loss of two wickets in the over ends the team’s one
               over innings.

                                                                            81
                                                                              81

       16.6.11 In the event of the teams having the same score after
              the Super Over has been completed, a count-back
              from the final ball of the Super Over shall be
              conducted. The team with the higher scoring delivery
              shall be the winner. If a team loses two wickets during
              its over, then any unbowled deliveries will be counted
              as dot balls. Note that for this purpose, the runs
              scored from a delivery is defined as the total team runs
              scored since the completion of the previous legitimate
              ball, i.e including any runs resulting from wides, no ball
              or penalty runs.

              Example:

              Runs
              scored from:               Team 1                 Team 2

              Ball 6                     1                      1
              Ball 5                     4                      4
              Ball 4                     2                      1
              Ball 3                     6                      2
              Ball 2                     0                      1
              Ball 1                     2                      6

              In this example both teams scored an equal number of
              runs from the 6th and 5th ball of their innings.
              However team 1 scored 2 runs from its 4th ball while
              team 2 scored a single so team 1 is the winner.

       16.6.12 If still equal, then another Super Over shall be played
              in accordance with 16.6.

       16.7 Should the Super Over not be completed due to
              County Championship Playing Condition 2.5 being
              invoked, then the Captains may, if circumstances
              (outdoors or indoors) permit, agree (in case of
              disagreement the Umpires shall decide) to the following
              form of ‘bowl-out’ contest to achieve a result:

              Five players from each side will bowl over-arm two
              deliveries each at a wicket (conforming to Law 8) from
