21.10.4 The tie-breakers for teams finishing on equal points will be:
21.10.5 Net Run Rate
A team's net run rate is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over scored by that team, the average runs per over scored against that team. In the event of a team being all out in less than its full quota of overs, the calculation of the net run rate of both teams shall be based on the full quota of overs to which the batting team would have been entitled and not on the number of overs in which the team was dismissed. Only those matches where results are achieved will count for the purpose of net run rate calculations.
Where a match is abandoned, but a result is achieved under Duckworth/Lewis, for net run rate purposes Team 1 will be accredited with Team 2's Par Score on abandonment off the same number of overs faced by Team 2. Where a match is concluded but with Duckworth/Lewis having been applied at an earlier point in the match, Team 1 will be accredited with 1 run less than the final Target Score for Team 2 off the total number of overs allocated to Team 2 to reach the target.

In the second half of the tournament, at every training huddle, players were told treat each match as a final. That resonated with Mumbai's talismans who lifted their games admirably
The five pairs who have added the most runs in Twenty20s
Pakistan umpire Ahsan Raza suffered severe injuries during the attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore. Six years later, he is eager to officiate his first international game at home
Instead of determination, we had destruction. Instead of patience, we had passion. And instead of percentage cricket we had bull's-eyes and jackpots
Perhaps after eight seasons of the IPL there is sameness, flatness, a sense of fatigue? Maybe the template can be revisited
Alastair Cook will never be a great orator or tactician. He will never rouse with a speech and rarely surprise with a tactic. Instead he must lead by example. This was the innings of a leader. But it wasn't necessarily the innings of a captain
