Guide to comparison of scores

Guide to comparison of scores

Achieving a result by comparison of scores
1. Overs will be deducted at the rate of one for every four minutes immediately rain, bad light, sun, or other adverse conditions interrupts play.

Rain brings a sudden end to play
2 If the team batting second has not had the opportunity to complete the same number of overs as their opponents and has neither been ‘all out’ nor has passed its opponents’ score, and no further play is possible, a comparison of scores will be made at the end of the last completed over. The team scoring the most runs will be the winner and will receive 10 points plus bonus points earned. If the scores are identical the match will be tied with each side being awarded five points plus the bonus points, they have earned.

Victory targets
If there is an interruption to play after the second innings has started, the umpires will determine how many overs have been lost and will confirm to the two captains and scorers how many overs remain in the game. At this point the target score for victory can be ascertained by comparing the first innings score after the same number of overs and adding one run. The target will have to be amended using the same method if further overs are lost.

Example: Team A scores 150 in 40 overs. Team B has batted 15 overs when 20 minutes are lost to rain. Five overs will be deducted so Team B now has a maximum of 35 overs to bat and their target is Team A’s score at 35 overs plus one run. In his case Team A were 120-6 after 35 overs so the target is 121.

If Team B achieve their target before the expiry of their overs the match is complete. 

Obtaining a result
3 A minimum of 20 completed overs must have been bowled for the comparison of scores to come into play unless the batting side is bowled out or reached its target sooner.
4 Where a result has not been achieved and less than 20 overs have been bowled in the second innings, the game will be deemed abandoned or incomplete with each side getting three points plus bonus points earned.

Obtaining a result
3. A minimum of 10 completed overs need to be bowled for the comparison of scores to come into play unless the batting side is bowled out or reached its target sooner.
4. If in the original tie a result has not been achieved and less than 10 overs have been bowled in the second innings, a fresh game will be played on the reserve date.
5. If on the reserve date there is insufficient play to secure a result, the winners will be determined by a bowl out, if conditions allow, or the toss of a coin.

TIED CUP MATCHES
1. Where scores finish level, the team losing least wickets will be declared the winner.
2. If the wickets are identical a comparison of the relative scores of the two sides after 10 overs of their respective innings will be made. If runs are equal the winner will be the team losing least wickets.
3. If a winner still hasn’t emerged the comparison will go back over by over until a winner emerges.
