Points - General
At the completion of the round-robin matches the teams will be placed in a league table in the order of merit based on the number of points gained in the round-robin matches.
The teams which finish 1st and 2nd on the league table will progress to the final.
Should any sides in the league table be equal on points the right to be placed in the higher position in the league table and/or progress to the final will be decided in the following order of priority:
a) Most outright wins
b) Most first innings leads
c) Highest net runs per wicket ratio
The winner of the final will be the team which achieves an outright victory. In the event the final is abandoned without a ball being bowled, or the fixture ends in a draw, the team which finished 1st on the league table will be the winner of the Intercontinental Cup 2011 - 2013.
In the event the final is a tie the Intercontinental Cup 2011 - 2013 will be shared.
