  • The Vice-Captain will receive 1.5 times the points for his performance
  • Strike rate scoring is applicable only for strike rate below 70 runs per 100 balls
  • In case of run-outs involving 3 or more players from the fielding side, points will be awarded only to the last 2 players involved in the run-out.
  • Substitutes on the field will not be awarded points for any contribution they make. However, ‘Concussion Substitutes’ (if permitted as per the applicable rules and regulations of the tournament) will be awarded points for any contributions they make in a match where they make an appearance as a ‘Concussion Substitute’.
  • It is clarified that Concussion Substitutes will be awarded only two (2) points for making an appearance (other than the points awarded for their sporting contributions) in a match as opposed to the four (4) points which are awarded to a player who is named in the starting eleven of a particular match.
  • In case of any transfer of a real-life player in the intervening period between scheduled updates, such transfer shall not be reflected in the roster of players until the next scheduled update. Please note that while the transferred player will be available for selection in the transferred team’s roster of players in a Contest during the intervening period, no points will be attributed to such transferred player in the course of such contest.
