. Here is a common points distribution:
- Win: A team earns two points for winning a match.
- Tie or No Result: In case of a tied match or a match with no result, each team usually gets one point.
- Loss: A team does not receive any points for a loss.
Teams’ rankings in the points table depend on the total points they earn. If two or more teams have the same number of points, the following tiebreakers are often applied to determine the rankings:
- Net Run Rate (NRR): Teams calculate it by subtracting the total runs scored against them from the total runs they scored, dividing the result by the total overs faced and bowled. A higher net run rate is advantageous.
- Head-to-Head Record: If the NRR is the same, teams’ performance against each other in head-to-head matches is considered.
- Number of Wins: The team with the most wins receives preference.
Number of Bonus Points: Some tournaments give bonus points for reaching specific milestones, and these points could affect tiebreakers.
The points table is dynamic and changes as the tournament progresses, with teams moving up or down based on their performances. It serves as a quick reference to gauge the standings of each team. It helps determine which teams qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament.
