Meeting Points
All Meeting points have been added.

4 Meetings * 5 points per meeting = 20 points max.

Points Clarification
The GMCL committee have reviewed the recent point raised in the Captains and Secretary meeting about teams bowling first and dismissing there opponents for a low score (i.e Under 125 runs).

After careful consideration, the committee unanimously agreed that the current points system is fair and is designed to make captains think about what action to take when they win/lose the toss. If teams are chasing a low score then they can gain additional bonus points by chasing the score by losing fewer wickets.
