The 2022 County Championship kickstarted the English season on April 7:  below is the points table for Division Two, with the standings of each team updated after each game.

The County Championship, featuring 18 teams playing four-day first-class fixtures, is due to run till September 29. Teams are divided into two divisions. Eight sides feature in Division Two of the County Championship. The usual two-division structure was hampered in 2020 due to Covid-19, but this season, the Championship returns to the old system.

The top two teams in Division Two will be promoted to Division One, while the bottom two sides from the latter will find a place in Division Two.


Teams in Division One: Surrey, Hampshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Warwickshire, Essex, Northamptonshire, Kent, Gloucestershire, Somerset

Teams in Division Two: Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Glamorgan, Worcestershire, Middlesex, Durham, Leicestershire, Sussex

County Championship 2022 Division Two: Updated points table and standings

The ongoing edition of the Championship awards each team 16 points for a win, while both sides will get eight points each for a tie, or if a game is drawn.

Points scored in the first innings are added as well. The first innings points are only awarded based on performances in the first 110 overs of every innings and are not dependent on the result of the game.

First Innings Batting Points

200 to 249 runs – 1 point

250 to 299 runs – 2 points

300 to 349 runs – 3 points

350 to 399 runs – 4 points

400 runs or over – 5 points

First Innings Bowling Points

3 to 5 wickets taken – 1 point

6 to 8 wickets taken – 2 points

9 to 10 wickets taken – 3 points

If a game is abandoned without even a ball being bowled, each side scores eight points.

If a game is abandoned due to an unfit pitch, the home side receives zero points. Any bonus points that they have accrued thus far in the game are rescinded. The visiting sides are awarded 16 points plus any bonus points already achieved or 20 points – whichever is greater at the time of abandonment.
