Abandoned match due to inadequate pitch and/or ground preparation (see clause 7.2)
The team that wins the match and achieves a run rate of 1.25 times that of the opposition shall be awarded one bonus point; ie. the team shall receive a total of 5 points (4 points for win, 1 bonus point). The team that wins the match and achieves a run rate of twice (2 times) that of the opposition shall be awarded an additional 1 bonus point, which is in addition to the bonus point achieved in above; ie. the team shall receive a total of 6 points (4 points for win, 1 bonus point and 1 additional bonus point).
A team's run rate will be calculated by reference to the runs scored in an innings divided by the number of overs available. Where matches are shortened and targets revised as per clause 21.5, bonus run rates and defensive targets are derived as a function of the revised target score (less one run) and maximum overs.
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 (runs scored / overs faced - runs conceded / overs bowled). 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.
21.7.4 Qualifying for the Final
The teams that finish first and second on the points table at the completion of the preliminary matches shall play in the Final as set out in the fixtures. The team that finished first on the points table shall earn the right to host the Final at a suitable venue within its State, provided that this venue is acceptable to Cricket Australia.
In the event of the teams finishing on equal points, the following in order shall be used to determine final placings:
- (a) The team with the most number of wins and ties.
- (b) The team with the most number of wins over the other team(s) who are equal on points and have the same number of wins.
- (c) The team with the highest number of bonus points.
- (d) The team with the highest net run rate. In a match declared no result, run rate is not applicable.
The winner of the Final shall be declared the WNCL Champion, and the loser runner-up.
If there is a Tie or No Result in the Final, the team finishing higher on the points table at the end of the preliminary matches shall be declared the winner of the match.
