In addition, the Regional 4-Day Tournament will see the introduction of a batting and bowling points system this year in an effort to encourage and incentivise positive play.
Teams will be awarded batting and bowling points for performances in the first 110 overs of each first innings only and retained whatever the result of the match.
A maximum of five batting points will be awarded based on runs scored by each team as follows:
- 200 to 249 runs - 1 point
- 250 to 299 runs - 2 points
- 300 to 349 runs - 3 points
- 350 to 399 runs - 4 points
- 400 runs or over - 5 points
A maximum of three bowling points will be awarded based on wickets taken by each team as follows:
- 3 to 5 wickets taken - 1 point
- 6 to 8 wickets taken - 2 points
- 9 to 10 wickets taken - 3 points
For the avoidance of doubt, "wickets taken" shall relate exclusively to batsmen dismissed under Laws 30 to 39 inclusive and to batsmen retired out.
If penalty runs are awarded to a team which at that time had faced less than 110 overs in their first innings, or completed their first innings before they had faced 110 overs, those penalty runs will be considered as counting towards the total as far as the award of bonus points is concerned.
If penalty runs are awarded to a team which had already faced 110 overs or more in their first innings, or had previously completed their first innings after they had faced 110 overs, those penalty runs will not be considered as counting towards the total as far as the award of bonus points is concerned.
