Given that it is set to be a five-over tournament, the bowlers are restricted to a particular over-cap, and as is the case globally, a free-hit will be awarded in case of a no-ball. There will only be a single powerplay (first over of every innings) wherein only three players will be allowed outside the circle.

Group A

Group B









Once the powerplay is done, the fielding restriction will allow only a maximum of five players on the leg-side, two behind square and five outside the circle. Furthermore, the teams will only have one DRS per innings.

The teams will play each other in their group twice, and two points will be awarded for a win and as many points will be a given in case of a bye. On the other hand, the teams playing a draw will share one point apiece.

Once the group-stage games are over, the top two teams of each group will qualify for the semi-finals.

Where to watch:

The tournament will be streamed live on, which happens to be the same platform which will offer the scorecard as well as the ball-to-ball commentary.
