Teams receive two points for a win and one point for a tie or no-result washout. If two sides level on points at the end of the league stage, the one that has won more matches goes through. If then also they remain level, the side with the higher net run-rate advances.
In the unlikely event, if they still cannot be separated, then the result of their match against each other will be a tie-breaker.
