What are CricHQ's Automatic Bonus Point Strategies?

CricHQ offers multiple Bonus point strategies that will automatically calculate when results are accepted for fixtures. See our bonus point strategies below.

 

Milestone points for runs and wickets 

As a user you can enter values for runs and wickets. If the team earns the amount of runs, or takes the amount of wickets set at these milestones they will earn the points associated with these.

 

Accumulate milestone points for runs and wickets

As a user you can enter values for runs and wickets. If the team earns the amount of runs, or takes the amount of wickets set at these milestones they will earn the points associated with these. In this strategy though the team will keep the points for all milestones they achieve, not just the highest. As they pass each milestone the points will accumulate to give them their total bonus points earned for the fixture.

 

As a fraction of runs scored and wickets taken

This option allows the user to add a number(fraction) which the team will receive for each of the runs or wickets they achieve throughout a game. Eg if the fraction is 0.01 for runs, and they scored 100 runs, they will receive 1 point(0.01 x 100)

 

As a multiple of the net run rate win factor

This will give the winning team their total bonus points for a fixture. The run rate win factor is a calculation of the winning teams run rate, divided by the losing teams run rate (run rate being runs/overs).

 

As a run rate quotient is reached

As a user you can define the quotient. The winning team gets a bonus point if they win their match with a run_rate quotient equal or over the given rate. If the team wins by forfeit they also get a bonus point. See the example below.

Team 1's run rate = 157 / 26.4 = 5.95

Team 2's run rate = 151 / 41.2 = 3.67

Quotient = 1.25

5.95 / 3.67 >= Quotient

1.62 >= 1.25 

Therefore since Team 1's run rate quotient (1.62) is equal or over the given rate (1.25) a bonus point is awarded. 

 

English Type 1 Bonus Strategy

Either team can get points if they bat or they bowl particularly well. Here's how the English Type 1 strategy works:

If any overs have been lost from the game, or if their scores are tied, neither team gets a point.

A team gets a point for their bowling efforts if:

  • They bowl the other side out for less than 75% of their own innings total, or

  • They lose the game yet still manage to take more than six wickets.

A team gets a point for their batting efforts if they bat second, and either:

  • Win, while losing fewer than four wickets themselves, or

  • Lose, while still scoring more than 75% of the first team's total.

This is almost identical to the English Type 2 strategy, except the Type 1 awards a batting point for losing fewer than four wickets, and the Type 2 awards one for losing less than three.

 

English Type 2 Bonus Strategy

Either team can get points if they bat or they bowl particularly well. Here's how the English Type 2 strategy works:

If any overs have been lost from the game, or if their scores are tied, neither team gets a point.

A team gets a point for their bowling efforts if:

  • They bowl the other side out for less than 75% of their own innings total, or
  • They lose the game yet still manage to take more than six wickets.

A team gets a point for their batting efforts if they bat second, and either:

  • Win, while losing fewer than three wickets themselves, or
  • Lose, while still scoring more than 75% of the first team's total.

This is almost identical to the English Type 1 strategy, except the Type 1 awards a batting point for losing fewer than four wickets, and the Type 2 awards one for losing less than three.

 

English Type 3 Bonus Strategy

Either team can get points if they bat or they bowl particularly well. Here's how the English Type 3 strategy works:

Bowling: each team receives 1 point per 2 wickets taken, to a maximum of 5. If the team batting, for whatever reason, has fewer than 11 players, and still gets all out, the bowling team still receives the maximum 5 points.

Batting: the team batting first gets 1 point when they score over the runs milestone set above, plus another point for every 25 runs after that, up to a maximum of 5 points.

The team batting second begins with the full 5 batting points, but loses 1 point for each 2 wickets lost. However, they then receive the same batting points as with the team batting first, 1 point for 125 runs, 1 point per 25 runs after, to a maximum of 5.

 

Norwegian Bonus Strategy

Either team can get points if they bat or they bowl particularly well. Here's how the Norwegian strategy works:

A team receives a bonus point if they win their match and either:

  • Bowl first and get their opponent all out, or
  • Bat first and avoid getting all out themselves.

Skin Points

Team receives 1 point per batting skin pair won. Skins consists of 2-3 overs.
