IBL unveils points system

Teams losing ties against other franchises would still gain points for the number of matches won in the best-of-five encounters in the upcoming Indian Badminton League (IBL).

“There will be a bonus point for the winners of each tie, plus points for the number of matches won. For example, if one team blanks another team 5-0, the winners would get six points, while for 4-1 and 3-2 verdicts the points awarded to the winning team would be 5 and 4, respectively,” IBL sources told PTI on Thursday.
“Also, the teams losing 2-3 or 1-4 would stand to gain 2 or 1 point, respectively,” they added.

Each tie would consist of two men’s singles, one men’s doubles, one mixed doubles and one women’s singles matches.

The inaugural edition of IBL involving six franchises is to be held from August 14-31 in six cities across the country.
