Points are calculated the same way for games in divisions 1-6


Win                       25 points; bonus points do not apply

Lose                     Bonus points only

Tie                        18 points; bonus points do not apply


There are 6 points available for the draw, and these are divided depending on the scores. These are in addition to bonus points earned (see below)

If the side batting second does not get within 30 runs of the opposition, the points all go to the side that batted first

If the side batting second gets within 30-21 (inc) of the opposition score, the points are divided 5-1 in favour of  the side batting first

If the side batting second gets within 20-11 (inc) of the opposition score, the points are divided 4-2 in favour of  the side batting first

If the side batting second gets within 10 of the opposition score, the points are divided 3-3

If the game is drawn with scores level, points are awarded as 3-5

Just to keep it interesting, if the side batting second lost the toss and their innings is reduced by 25% of their overs or more, the draw points are split evenly (3:3)


Bonus points

Irrespective of whether you bat first or second, there is one batting point awarded at 100, and then another for each 30 runs up to a maximum of 5 (220 runs)

If you bowl first (whether you opt to or are invited to), you receive 1 point at the fall of each of the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and final wicket.

If you bowl second, you get a point for every wicket you take.


In divisions 7-9 there are some differences.


You get a bowling bonus point for every wicket in both innings (10 points for all out, irrespective of how many players they may have).

The batting points start at 90 and go up in increments of 20 to 190, where you get 6.
