Bash boost

There will now be four points available in each match – three for the overall win, plus the Bash Boost point, awarded halfway through the case. The teams chasing will receive the point if it is above the equivalent score of its opposition. If the chasing team would be behind, the fielding team will receive the point.

This year, the season will begin in Tasmania and ACT with the first match on December 10, with matches moving to Queensland and South Australia later in the month.
