Super Bonus Point for One Dayers


WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
  • First team batting collapses for 35 all out in 10 overs, second team achieves a result inside a few overs...
  • Result: big win but relatively few bonus points (4 + 1.5 + 0.36 =  5.86)...
  • Compared to a more "normal' game (eg. 9/150 def by 2/151 (points for winners are 4 + 1.35 + 1.51 =  6.86)
  • Result: More points scored for a routine win than for a major win. 
By bowling well and dismissing the first batting side cheaply the second team effectively misses out on a whole bonus point.

DISCUSSION
So introduce a super bonus point for results inside 15 overs.*
* Note: does not apply in rain shortened games.
* Note: (maybe) only if defeated side is all out.
What about the Sunday 50 over games? A super bonus point for results inside 25 overs.

A PROPOSAL

Add the following Regulation for Saturdays

11.21.6 A super bonus point will be awarded for a win achieved before the completion of 15 overs.
11.21.6.1 This will not apply in any match delayed, interrupted or rearranged as in regulations 11.5 to 11.8


A similar added regulation can be added for the Sunday 50 Over comp.

26.1.1.5 A super bonus point will be awarded for a win achieved before the completion of 25 overs.
26.1.1.5.1 This will not apply in any match delayed, interrupted or rearranged as in regulations 11.5 to 11.8


(This might get renumbered. See other posts in this blog...)
