St. John’s: The Caribbean Premier League and Cricket West Indies will begin with a T10 tournament called ‘The 6ixty’, which organizers hope will become a quarterly event that can be staged in the region and beyond. The inaugural season will be played just before the CPL season in St Kitts from 24 to 28 August.

A total of six men’s teams will participate in the tournament, while three women’s teams will play in the tournament. The rules in this tournament are slightly different than in other leagues. This match will be of 6 wickets. If 6 wickets fall, the team will be all out. 60 balls will be available to play an innings. If the team bowls at a slower pace then a fielder has to be reduced.

30 balls will be thrown from one end, while the remaining 30 balls will be thrown from the other end.

Meanwhile, fans can also vote for extra runs as to which ball should be a free hit. This will be called a mystery-free hit, on which the batsman will not be out.

In an official statement released by the Caribbean Premier League, Cricket West Indies President Ricky Skerritt said: “6IXTY has come about because of the close collaboration between CPL and CWI which is the way forward. I’m really excited about innovation, excitement and entertainment. Who am I going to bring this to the fans?

CPL CEO Pete Russell said: “This is an extremely exciting moment for both the CPL and Cricket West Indies as we build a tournament that will bring cricket fans closer to the sport.” World class men and women cricketers will take part in a grand event for the Caribbean and this coupled with cutting edge innovations signifies a great moment for all fans of West Indies cricket. ,
