It’s the last day of the Women’s County Championship, and bonus points could be critical at both the top and bottom of Division 1.
Each game offers 10 points for a win plus 8 bonus points, 4 for batting and 4 for bowling.
To take the title, Yorkshire need a win plus at least 7 bonus points; whilst at the bottom, to be certain of survival Warwickshire also need the same – i.e. a win plus a minimum of 7 bonus points, although they can get away with less depending on how Notts get on.
Here is how the bonus points work:
Bowling points are pretty simple – you take wickets; you get points!
Batting points are a bit more complicated, because they are calculated on the run rate, rather than the number of runs. To give you an idea, we’ve shown a 50 Over Equivalent score below; but remember if your side are chasing, it is really how quickly they score the runs rather than how many they score.
|Run Rate (Per Over*)||50 Over Equivalent||Points|
* If you are all-out, the run rate is calculated based on the full allocation of overs.
