  5. In case of a tie as per the points basis, the team with better NRR will be declared the cup winner

Net Run Rate formula:

A team's net run rate is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over scored by that team, the average runs per over scored against that team. Only those matches where results were achieved and where recalculating the target score was not utilised will count for the purpose of net run rate calculations.

In the event of a team being all out in less than its full quota of overs, the calculation of its net run rate shall be based on the full quota of overs to which it would have been entitled and not on the number of overs in which the team was dismissed.
