Sheffield Shield 2003/04

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2003/04 Sheffield Shield, also known as the 2003/04 Pura Cup for sponsorship reasons, was the 112th season of national first-class cricket competition in Australia. The winner was Victoria, who thus won their 26th Sheffield Shield.

Format

Teams played two games in each division against each other. For a win a team initially received 6 points, for a draw (both teams score the same number of runs) 3 points. If no result is achieved and the game ends in a draw, the results after the first innings count. Two points are awarded for a win, one point for a draw and none for a loss. If the game is lost after the second innings, even though the first innings was won, two points are awarded. Furthermore, it is possible that teams get points deducted if they play too slowly or if the field is not prepared properly. In case of a tie, the ranking will be decided first by the number of wins and then by the ratio of runs needed per wicket and runs scored per wicket. At the end of the season, the top two in the group will play the winner of the Sheffield Shield in the final.[1]
