The tournament is scheduled to take place from August 24 to 28 in St. Kitts and Nevis, just before the CPL season. In the first Women’s game of the tournament, the Trinbago Knight Riders will lock horns with Barbados Royals on August 24 and in the first Men’s game, Guyana Amazon Warriors will lock horns with St. Lucia Kings on August 25.

Also, the trophy has been named ‘Universe Boss Trophy’, which is named after the legendary West Indies batter Chris Gayle.

In total 12 Men’s games and 7 Women’s games will be played in the tournament and legendary West Indies batter Chris Gayle, who is also the brand ambassador of the tournament, will play for St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots.

Also, star players like Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Tim Siefert, Jason Holder, Paul Stirling, Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran will be seen in action.

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.
