Re: What's the (Bonus) Point

I enjoy the fact that bonus points add an extra dimension to County Championship matches, as it can create some interesting situations if the 110th over is approaching and a team needs a certain amount of runs or a wicket or two in order to achieve a point. The amount of excitement around the 110th over (or earlier in an innings if a team is down to their tail) is even greater in late-season matches.

If bonus points were ever to be abolished, I imagine that Championship matches would be like Test matches in the sense that players, spectators and the media would simply focus on the main story, which is how first innings performances affect the likely result of the match.
