What is bonus point

As the name suggests, bonus is when you win big. The defination is to beat opposition by more than one run per over. Consider a team makes 250 runs batting first, they scored their runs at 5 runs per over and now will have to keep opposition lower than 200 (4 runs per over in 50 over innings) to earn a bonus point. Convsersly, if chasing team wants to earn bonus, they've to finish get their target inside 40 overs.

What is net runrate

Net runrate is the average runs scored per over throughout the relevant portion of the tournament = runs scored divided by overs played. Even in case a team is bowled out in less than it's full quota of overs, calculation of net run rate is done by total runs scored divided by full quota of overs of that innings. in case a team chases down their target in fewer overs, they better their net runrate. In case of a rain abandoned or shorterned games, NRR is calculated to the team's par score according to Duck-Worth Lewis method
