Umpires Awarding a Match
A Tie: The result of a match shall be a tie when the scores are equal at the conclusion of play, but only if the side batting last has completed its innings.
A Draw; A match not determined in any of the ways as in 1, 2, 3 and 4 above shall count as a draw.
Correctness of Result
Any decision as to the correctness of the scores shall be the responsibility of the Umpires.
If, after the Umpires and Players have left the field, in the belief that the match has been concluded, the Umpires decide that a mistake in scoring has occurred, which affects the result, and provided time has not been reached, they shall order play to resume and to continue until the agreed finishing time unless a result is reached earlier.
If the Umpires decide that a mistake has occurred and time has been reached, the Umpires shall immediately inform both Captains of the necessary corrections to the scores and, if applicable, to the result.
Acceptance of Result
(a) Statement of Results
The result of a finished match is stated as a win by runs, except in the case of a win by the side batting last when it is by the number of wickets still then to fall.
(b) Winning Hit or Extras
As soon as the side has won, see 1. and 2. above, the Umpire shall call "time", the match is finished, and nothing that happens thereafter other than as a result of a mistake in scoring, see 6. above, shall be regarded as part of the match.
However, if a boundary constitutes the winning hit--or extras--and the boundary allowance exceeds the number of runs required to win the match, such runs scored shall be credited to the side's total and, in the case of a hit to the Striker's score.
