I really did try. Team just not good enough which is madness with a 46 rated bowlers 50 rated bat, two bat's over 45 and none under 40 rated. A 42 rated wrist spinner a 19 year old getting over 160kmh and lowest bowlers of 37 rated. Seems my best is just average, you guys are really really good.
What are the bonus points rules? I thought you got it which means ProC win. Isn't it 75 percent of run rate
No? For the defending team, run rate has nothing to do with it lol You needed to win by (359/10) x 2. Aka win by 72 runs after rounding up from 71.8. Which put the total at 287 for what you needed to limit him to. You won by 87 so pretty comfortable there.
The reason why I say run rate doesn't matter for the defending team, aka the bowling team/you in this instance is quite simple. It doesn't matter if Krypto scored his runs in 10 overs, 30 overs or 50 overs, all that mattered to you in winning by the BP was the margin. Just obviously less overs = a bigger NRR boost for you, not that it mattered in this case considering your mammoth NRR advantage.
Anyway, congrats on the title and unlucky to Pro C! Hurts to see that a bloke lost one game all season and didn't win the title, but I guess any game where he could've snuck an extra point would've made all the difference (a bit of a shock to see 13 wins but only 4 BP )
