In all Plunket Shield matches points shall be scored as follows:

Bonus Points only will apply for each team's first innings only up to the end of 110 overs. There is no compulsory declaration.

Batting Points - 1 point at 250 runs, 2 points at 300 runs, 3 points at 350 runs, 4 points at 400 runs.

Bowling Points - 1 point at 3 wickets, 2 points at 5 wickets, 3 points at 7 wickets, 4 points at 9 wickets.

No other points apply for the first innings.

A drawn match will earn the bonus points only for each team, including matches that end before both first innings are completed.

Outright Win 12 points to be added to the bonus points earned. Outright Tie 6 points to each team plus bonus points earned.

Abandoned match - a match being abandoned without any play having taken place - 2 points.

In a match that commences with 10 hours or less playing time remaining, then the first innings of both teams shall automatically be forfeited, and the teams shall play a one innings match (not limited overs) for 6 points (3 each for a tie), with NO bonus points applicable. Should the match end as a No Result then each team = 2 points.
