As it stands now, Ballarat-Redan have been awarded the six points, however they were originally split between the two teams thanks to an agreement between the captains.
The decision came after North Ballarat's Vikrant Dabra, who was batting at the time, collapsed from a seizure. An ambulance was called and he was taken to hospital on the day.
Ballarat-Redan batted first, finishing 9-233 off its 50 overs.
Due to rain interruptions, North Ballarat was due to face 30 overs and the winner would be decided under the Duckworth-Lewis-Stan (DLS) method.
North were 6-154 off 29 overs and needed 11 runs from the final over when Dabra collapsed.
North Ballarat captain Mick Nolan told The Courier he and Chris Egan (Ballarat-Redan captain) agreed on the day to cease play and split the points due to the circumstances. Egan's version of events was that the two agreed the result would be determined by the pennant committee who initially decided the points would be split.
Ballarat-Redan requested this decision be reviewed, pointing to a BCA rule which states when there has been 25 overs or more bowled, the team in front at the time is declared the winner under the DLS method.
Ballarat-Redan was then awarded the full six points for victory.
Nolan added that the email request into the points allocation from Ballarat-Redan came two weeks after the round seven fixture.
The appeal could significantly affect the ladder with two rounds to go until finals.
As it stands, North Ballarat sits fifth on 48 points. If it wins the appeal, it will jump to 51 points and a full game clear of Golden Point and nine points clear of Ballarat-Redan. A dismissal will result in no points or ladder movement for the club.
The Two-Swords face Napoleons-Sebastopol and Brown Hill in the next two rounds, who sit 10th and ninth on the ladder respectively.
North Ballarat face Buninyong and Golden Point in its final two matches with the Golden Point clash now looming potentially as an early elimination final.
Interestingly the two teams clashed in an enthralling game at the weekend, Ballarat-Redan winning by just four runs.
The Two-Swords were bowled out for 136 in 49.3 overs, Jonah Healey taking 3-22 off 6.3 overs.
North Ballarat's openers started strongly with a 48 run opening partnership before Billy Jones collected 4-10 to help Ballarat-Redan answer and bowl North out for 132 with eight balls to spare.
BCA declined to comment until the process is completed next Tuesday.
