Matches are played over 80 overs in total and can result in a win/loss or a draw.
In order to win, a team must, if batting second, pass their opponents’ score; or if batting first, dismiss their opponents (all out) for less than their own score. If no team wins in this way then the match is drawn.
The team batting first may bat for up to 45 overs, and, if not all out, may choose when to declare their innings closed.
The team batting second will have available all of the complete overs unused by the first team.
A team that wins, as described above, will receive 10 points.
If the match is drawn, each team will receive 5 points.
Bonus points can be gained by both teams as follows:-
Bowling points – up to 5
1 for each 2 wickets taken.
(If a team of less than 11 players is all out, the bowling team get the full 5 points.)
Batting points – up to 5
100 runs – 1 point
130 runs – 2
