Kia Super League points explained
A win with a bonus point results in five points in total being awarded to the victorious team. Wins without a bonus point are worth four points in total. In the event of a tied match or no result, both teams are awarded two points. Teams do not receive points for a loss. The team that achieves a run rate of 1.25 times that of the opposition shall be awarded one bonus point. A team’s run rate will be calculated by reference to the runs scored in an innings divided by the number of overs faced.
