Group Stage Points Table
The team with the highest number of points at the end of the Group Stage shall finish 1st on the Group Points Table and the team with the lowest shall finish 5th.
Separating Teams on Equal Points
In the event of teams finishing on equal points during the Group Stage, the higher finishing position on the Points Table will be assumed by:
(i) The team with the most number of wins; or if equal,
(ii) The team with the highest Net Run Rate; or if equal,
(iii) The team with the higher number of wickets taken per balls bowled in the Group Stage matches in which results were achieved; or if equal,
(iv) Drawing lots.
In a match declared no result, Net Run Rate is not applicable.
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 competition, the average runs per over scored against that team throughout the competition.
In the event of a team being all out in less than its full quota of overs, the calculation of its net run rate shall be based on the full quota of overs to which it 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.
Runs scored and balls bowled during a Super Over shall not be included in Net Run Rate calculations.
Qualifying for the Semi Finals
The teams that finish 1st and 2nd on each Group Points Table at the completion of the Group Stage matches shall progress to the Semi Finals.
The team that finishes 1st on the Group A Points Table will assume position A1 in the Semi Final Match Schedule, and the team that finishes 2nd will assume position A2.
Team A1 will play Team B2 in Semi Final 1 (Durban, Friday 24 September)
Team B1 will play Team A2 in Semi Final 2 (Centurion, Saturday 25 September)
Qualifying for the Final
The winner of each Semi Final shall progress to the Final.
In the event of the result of the Semi Final being a;
(v) Tie (with no Super Over possible), or
(vi) No Result, or
(vii) Abandoned Match,
the team that finished higher on its Group Points Table will progress to the Final. (ie. A1 or B1).
The winner of the Final shall be declared the Champion Team.
In the event of the result of the Final being a;
(i) Tie (with no Super Over possible), or
(ii) No Result, or
(iii) Abandoned Match,
both teams shall share the title of Champion Team, and the Prize Money shall be split evenly between the two teams.
