The Federation League comprises of 7 divisions. Each fixture has 24 bowlers representing from the association. 12
players play in the home leg (at a venue decided by the captains/selectors) and 12 play at a venue decided by the opposition. The scoring system goes something like this:
* 1 point for each winner at each venue so 24 points are available here
* 2 points at each venue for winning the aggregate so another 4 points are available
* 4 points for the association which wins the overall aggregate
I'm sure you have all worked out that we play for 32 points overall.
