The following points system will apply:
Tie, no result or abandoned 1
In the event of teams finishing on equal points in their Group, the right to play in the Super 10 series will be decided in the following order of priority:
In the event of teams finishing on equal points at the end of the Second Round, the right to play in the Semi-Final will be decided in the following order of priority:
If a Semi-Final is tied, the teams shall compete in a Super Over to determine which team progresses to the Final. Refer attached Appendix 7. If following a tie, weather conditions prevent the Super Over from being completed, or if the match is a no result or abandoned, then the team which finished first in its Second Round group shall progress to the Final.
In the event of a tied Final, the teams shall compete in a Super Over to determine which team is the winner. Refer attached Ap-pendix 7. If weather conditions prevent the Super Over from being completed, or if the match is a no result or abandoned, the teams shall be declared joint winners.
Net Run Rate
A team's net run rate is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over scored by that team throughout the relevant por-tion of the competition, the average runs per over scored against that team throughout the relevant portion of the competition.
Note: The Super Over is not included in the net run rate calculation.
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 circumstances where a match (and the points for such match) is awarded to a team as a result of the other team's refusal to play, either by the match referee in accordance with Law 21.3 (a)(ii) as read with playing condition 21.3 or in accordance with the provisions of the relevant event agreements signed by the participating teams, the net run rate of the defaulting team shall be affected in that the full 20 overs of the defaulting team's innings in such forfeited match shall be taken into account in calculating the average runs per over of the defaulting team over the course of the relevant portion of the competition. For the avoidance of doubt the runs scored and overs bowled in such forfeited match will not be taken into account when calculating the net run rate of the team to whom the match was awarded.
