- WIDE BOWLING - JUDGING A WIDE
Umpires are instructed to apply very strict and consistent interpretation in
regards to this Law in order to prevent negative bowling wide of the wicket.
Any offside or legside delivery which in the opinion of the Umpire does not

As a guide on the leg side, any ball landing clearly outside the leg stump
and going further away shall be called a "Wide".

Either batsman may raise the matter with umpires and the Umpires' decision

minimum of 25 overs, shall be declared 'No Result'.
In matches in which both teams have had the opportunity of batting for the
agreed number of overs, the team scoring the higher number of runs shall
be the winner. If the scores are equal, the result shall be a 'Tie' and no
account shall be taken of the number of wickets which have fallen.
13.3 Delayed or Interrupted Matches - Calculation of Target Score
If the innings of the team batting second is delayed or interrupted and
it is not able to receive its full quota of overs, the target score shall
be calculated as follows
The score of the team batting first shall be multiplied by the percentage factor
for the number of overs to be bowled to team batting second, as set out on the
Target Score Calculation Chart
14.1 Preliminary Matches
The points system shall be as follows:
Win - 2, Tie or No Result - 1 Loss - 0.
In the event of the teams finishing on equal points, the right to play in
the Final match will be decided by the most wins in the preliminary matches or,
when teams have both equal wins and equal points, the team which was the winner
of the preliminary match (played between them) will be placed in the higher position
or, if still equal, the higher net run rate in the preliminary matches. In a match
declared 'No Result', run rate is not applicable.
A team's net run rate is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over
scored by that team throughout the competition, the average runs per over scored
against that team throughout the competition.
In the event of a team being all out in less than its full quota of overs, the
calculation of its net run rate shall be based on the full quota of overs to which
it would have been entitled and not on the number of overs in which the team was
If no result is achieved in a final then the winner shall be:
- The team with higher points in the preliminary round or if finishing equal,
- The team with most number of wins in the preliminary round matches or if
- The team which was the winner of the preliminary match ( if played between them)
or if still equal,
- team with better net run rate or if still equal,
- Decided by spin of the coin.

TARGET SCORE CALCULATION CHART
TEAM A's SCORE
Overs % Factor Target Score
e.g.: Team batting first scores 188. The innings of the team
batting second is limited to 37 overs.
188 x 86.7 = 162.99
Target score = 163 runs
The rule is based on the "Parabola Formula" which is :
Where Y = Runs x = Overs c = Zero, as the game starts from zero over and zero
run a, b are 'Constant'
A graphical representation of the Parabola Fomiula is depicted below:
before the formula is solved , it is necessary to find out the values of the
'Constants' a and b. The values of a and b are determined in the formula
ax2+ bx + c are as follows for the three situations :
multiplying Equation (i) by 2 and Equation (iii) by 3, we get
470 = 7200a + 120b ............... (iv)
-612 = -4800a - 120b ..................(v)
Subtracting Equation (iv) from Equation (v). we get.
-142 = 2400a + 0
the value of 'Constant' a -142/2400 = -0.0591
To get the value of b, we can now put the value of a in the three equations.
The value of b in Equation (i) is 7.464
The value of b in Equation (ii) is 7.450
The value of b in Equation (iii) is 7.463
The average value of b is 7.459, i.e. 7.46
The Formula for deriving the Target Score=
7.46 x No of overs -0.059 x (No of overs
available in 2nd innings available in 2nd innings)2 No of runs
------------------------------------------------------- x scored in 1st
7.46 x No of overs -0.059 x (No of overs innings
available in 1st innings available in 1st innings)2
- 235 = a x (60)2 + b(60) + 0 or, 235 = 3600a + 60b
- 231 = a x (55)2 + b(55) + 0 or, 231 = 3025a + 55b
- 204 = a x (40)2 + b(40) + 0 or, 204 = 1600a + 40b
Now, this formula would be applicable in two situations :
- A situation where the team batting 1st has batted its full quota of 5O
overs, but the number of overs for the team batting 2nd would have to be
- A situation where the team batting first had to bat lesser number of overs
and the team batting 2nd would have to bat even lesser number of overs.
- Team 'A' scores 300 in its full quota of 50 overs. But owing to rain, the
number of overs available to Team 'B' is 30. Its target score would be:
7.46 x 30 - 0.059 x (30)2
------------------------- X 300
7.46 x 50 - 0.059 x (50)2
= 223.8 - 53.1 224-53
------------ x 300 = ------ x 300
- Team A gets a chance to bat for 30 overs and scores 240 runs because of
rains. After the rains subside, team B gets to bat for 25 overs only.Its target
score would be:
7.46 x 25 - 0.059 x (25)2
------------------------- x 240
7.46 x 30 - 0.059 x (30)2
= 186.5 - 36.87 187-37
------------- x 240 = ------ x 240
223.8 - 53.10 171
In order to simplify the formula, a "Norm' is derived on the basis of actual
number of overs bowled.
Norms are calculated for each over from the 25th to the 50th over which are as
Accordingly, the formula of the Target Score is simplified as follows:-
overs Bowled in any Innings NORM
'NORM' for Team Batting Second
Target Score = -----------------------------
'NORM' for Team Batting First
x Runs scored by Team Batting First
Let us apply this formula to the two innustrations (a) and (b) stated on page 11
for calculation of Target Score:
--- x 300 = 228
--- x 240 = 210
