Rules of The 6ixty
Cricket West Indies (CWI) on Wednesday stepped up cricket’s bid to find another innovative short-form form of the game with the announcement of a new 60-ball domestic competition.
The England and Wales Cricket Board last year introduced a new City franchise-based 100-ball competition, 20 balls less than T20s but 40 more than 6ixty.
Rules of The 6ixty:
Fans can look forward to the following exciting new rules:
Each batting team has six wickets – they are all out when the sixth wicket falls
Each batting team has two powerplay overs. He can unlock the third powerplay by hitting two sixes in the first 12 balls. This additional powerplay over can be taken at any time between 3-9 overs
For the last 30 balls 30 balls will be bowled from one end before moving on to the other end of the action
30 balls will be given as 5 separate overs with no bowler able to bowl more than 2 overs for the innings.
If teams do not bowl their overs within the allotted time, a member of their team is taken off the field for the last six balls.
Fans will vote for times of “mystery free hit” where the batsman cannot be dismissed by the bowler.
