Final Standings in the NatWest Pro40
The Two Divisions for 2009 will be as stated in the Rules for ECB competitions section.
The side which has the highest aggregate of points gained at the end of the season shall be the winner of its Division. Should any sides in a Division be equal on points, their final positions will be decided by:
(a) Most wins
(b) When teams have both equal points and equal wins, the teams will be ordered according to which team achieved the most points in the matches played between them.
(c) If still equal, the team with the higher net run rate will be placed in the higher position (see below).
(d) If still equal, the team with the higher number of wickets taken per balls bowled in matches in which results were achieved, will be placed in the higher position.
(e) In the event that teams cannot be separated by (a) to (d) above, this will be done by drawing lots.
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.
