Net Run Rate and Forfeited Matches


The Management Board has noted that a number of Senior League matches have not taken place this season because clubs have been unable to fulfil the fixture.

Consideration has been given as to how this will impact on team's and their opponent's net run rates which are used to decide league winners, promotion and relegation when teams are equal on points.

The Board has decided that a team that fails to fulfil a fixture will be deemed to have lost the match by 150 runs in a 50 over match and by 120 runs in a 40 over match. Their opponents will be deemed to have won the match by the same margins and net run rate adjusted accordingly.

The provisions of Competition Rule F7 will also continue to apply.
