A T10 tournament named ‘The 6ixty’ is set to be launched by the Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and the tournament is scheduled to take place from August 24 to 28 in St. Kitts and Nevis, just before the CPL season.

In ‘The 6ixty’ a total of six men’s teams – St. Lucia Kings, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Barbados Royals, Trinbago Knight Riders, Jamaica Tallawahs, and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots – will be participating. Also, three women’s teams –Trinbago, Barbados and Guyana – will take part in the inaugural edition of the T10 tournament.

The rules of the tournament are very different as the batting teams will only have six wickets rather than 10 wickets. Also, the mandatory powerplay will be of two overs and the batting team can also unlock a floating third-over powerplay by smashing two sixes in the initial two overs.

The 30 balls will be thrown from one end, while the remaining 30 balls will be thrown from the other end. Also, a fielder will be removed for the last six balls if the bowling team fail to complete 10 overs in 45 minutes. Meanwhile, fans can also vote for a mystery-free hit, on which the batsman will not be out.
