Bowling Points - 1 point at 3 wickets, 2 points at 5 wickets, 3 points at 7 wickets, 4 points at 9 wickets.
No other points apply for the first innings.

In a match that commences with 10 hours or less playing time remaining, then the first innings of both teams shall automatically be forfeited, and the teams shall play a one innings match (not limited overs) for 6 points (3 each for a tie), with NO bonus points applicable. Should the match end as a No Result then each team = 2 points.
