ET20 Points Table
*Stats yet to be updated
The Euro T20 Slam Points Table 2019 will be updated based on common rules which are followed almost in any T20 tournament. The winner of each match will be awarded two points while the losing team will get zero points. In case of a tie, a super over will decide the result. If a match ends in no result then both the teams will be awarded one point each. To summarize the ET20 Slam points table scoring structure:
Win : 2
Loss : 0
Tie : Super Over
No Result : 1 point to each of the two teams

The format of the tournament is going to be double round robin followed by the knockout stages. Since each team is going to play every team for a total of two times, it is going to be a pretty long and exciting tournament. It is during the knockout stages that a high position on the Euro T20 Slam points table will be coming handy for the teams. So, every team would be trying to secure a top-spot on the ET20 Slam points table at the beginning stages of the tournament itself.
