National Cricket League[edit]

Although separate first-class and limited overs matches were contested by domestic teams in the 2000-01 season, results from both formats were combined to form a common points table. In the first round teams were placed in two groups of four. Each team played a 3-day first-class match and a 50 overs limited overs match against the other teams in its group, home and away. The top two teams from each group progressed to the final round where teams played a 4-day first-class and a 50 overs limited match against the qualifiers from the other group, home and away.[1]
