Umpires and scorers utilise many documents that govern the game of cricket - not only the Marylebone Cricket Club's (MCC) Laws of Cricket but also the specific Playing Conditions, Report Forms, and Scoresheets that are used by New Zealand Cricket in its competitions and tournaments. These documents, as well as NZCUSA Umpiring and Scoring Resources, are provided here for all umpires, scorers, and cricket users.
Please note that while the New Zealand Cricket and New Zealand Cricket Umpires' and Scorers' Association resources are free to download, it is copyright material and due acknowledgement should be made to NZC and/or NZCUSA when these resources are used for purposes beyond personal use. Please e-mail the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
