Points system and rule changes introduced for 2010

Friday 11th December 2009

Following an ECB Board meeting, the following points system and rule changes have been approved for the LV= County Championship and are effective from 2010.

Teams will receive 16 points for a win and 3 for a draw (14 points for a win and 4 for a draw in recent years).

Bonus points remain unchanged (a maximum of 5 batting points and 3 bowling points available during each side’s first innings) but the threshold for achieving them has reduced to 110 overs (from 120 overs in 2009).
The use of the heavy roller will be banned after the commencement of the match.

The changes have been approved in an effort to encourage and incentivise positive cricket throughout the season as well as maintaining and promoting the preparation of good cricket pitches.

A full list of regulations for 2010 will be available in due course.
