23. Premiership points / Final placing
a. If two or more teams are equal on points, their relative positions shall be determine by averages, for which purpose the following system shall be employed:
b. The batting average of a team shall be ascertained by dividing the total number of runs scored for by the total number of wickets lost by that team. The batting average against shall be obtained by dividing the total number of runs scored against by the total number of wickets taken. The former shall be divided by the latter and that team having the higher quotient shall be considered to have the best performance. In any innings which has been declared closed only the number of wickets actually fallen shall be considered lost.
