When you edit the result of a fixture, you will first be asked to enter the Summary Result. This is most vital part of the process.
Use the pull down options to show the result, the toss and who was home/away. Enter the runs, wickets and overs for each innings. Click the appropriate bullet button to show who batted first, and also to indicate if an innings was declared.
The fixtures have been input centrally by the L&DCC league, so there are additional extra entries for points, which do not appear if your club enters the fixture itself. These need to be entered carefully, as they directly feed the league table.
When you enter the result, this will automatically generate basic points, e.g.
Team X won … 20 points to Team X
Team Y conceded … 25 points to Team X and 10 points deducted from Team Y
Abandoned … 5 points each team etc
So you only need to enter the additional batting and bowling bonus points.
For the winning team, only their first innings batting bonus points, if they retain them, or their bowling points if batting second after losing the toss.
For drawing or losing, bonus points from both innings.
5.2.1 Bonus Points to be ENTERED
Batting bonus points may be awarded up to and including the 55th over of the first innings (45th over at 2nd and 3rd XI level) and for the whole of the second innings.
If a team batting first declares, or is all out, before or on the completion of 55/45 overs and wins, all batting bonus points awarded will be retained in addition to the 20 points for a win. But no bowling bonus points.
If a captain loses the toss and his team bowls first and wins, all bowling bonus points awarded will be retained in addition to the 20 points for a win. But no batting bonus points.
Teams drawing or losing a match will retain all bonus points awarded.
1st XI matches:
Batting: - 1 point at 100 runs, 2 points at 130 runs, 3 points at 160 runs, 4 points at 190 runs and 5 points at 220 runs
2nd XI and 3rd XI matches:
Batting: - 1 point at 100 runs, 2 points at 125 runs, 3 points at 150 runs, 4 points at 175 runs and 5 points at 200 runs
At all levels :
Bowling:- 1 point for 2 wickets, 2 points for 4 wickets, 3 points for 6 wickets, 4 points for 8 wickets and 5 points for 10 wickets (full points if less than 11 batsmen available).
5.2.2 Which points NOT to enter
If a captain wins the toss and his team bowls first and wins, the team does NOT retain bowling (nor batting) bonus points, so please do not enter them.
If a team batting first continues beyond the completion of 55/45 overs and wins, the team does NOT retain batting (nor bowling) bonus points, so please do not enter them.
Other points are generated automatically, so please do NOT enter them :
20 points for a win.
Tied matches: 15 points will be awarded to each team.
Matches abandoned without a ball being bowled will be regarded as 'abandoned' and each team will be awarded 5 points.
Matches abandoned after the start due to weather and/or light conditions will be regarded as 'no decision'. In 'no decision' matches each team will be awarded 5 points (unless a team has gained and retains more than 5 bonus points, see Special Case below).
In the event of a team defaulting on a league fixture, 10 points will be deducted, and 25 points will be awarded to its opponents.
5.2.3 Special case - 'no decision' matches
In 'no decision' matches each team will be awarded 5 points, or will retain its bonus points gained (if more than 5) if more than 15 overs of the second innings have been completed.
When you enter a 'no decision' result, 5 points are generated automatically for each team. Where a team retains more than 5 points from a 'no decision' result, this is a special case which the play-cricket system cannot deal with neatly at the moment. In this case, manually credit the additional bonus points as batting bonus points, so that these are added to the 5 points generated automatically.
If, for example, a team had gained 7 bonus points when the match was abandoned, then manually enter 2 batting bonus points for that team. Thus they will be awarded 7 points in total for the 'no decision' result.
5.2.4 The Highlights box
Note that our L&DCC league requires the score after 55 overs (45 overs at 2nd XI level), which play-cricket does not ask for. Use the Highlights box (at the foot of the summary screen) to enter this, and also any individual performances of note (batsmen scoring 30 or more, bowlers taking 3 or more wickets, hat tricks, notable partnerships, etc). For example:
Score after 55 overs of first innings: Bootle 187-7
Bootle: 220-7d (60 overs) (Williams 67, Smith 33*; Webb 6-45 inc hat trick)
Northop Hall: 208-9 (52 overs) (Jones 55, Kennedy 35; Smith 3-23)
Result: match drawn
