The paragraph that says "If weather delays the start of the match or intervenes during the first innings, two overs (one from each side) shall be deducted from the overall match total for each period of seven minutes lost. No account shall be taken of the first thirty minutes of the first delay or suspension of play" should be omitted from the handbook.

Following the Captain's Meeting, the following were noted:

1. There is no minimum number of overs in the second innings to make a result; the 2017 regs as revised still apply.

2. Captains should agree the tolerances for leg side wides before the toss. The default is to be everything leg side is a wide, but Captains are free to agree something more lenient.
