Rules: 6IXTY Women’s Competition
It being a T10 competition, there’ll be a maximum of 10 overs (60 legal balls) and each bowler will get a maximum of two overs. However, the highlight of the upcoming inaugural edition of the league is its rules :
• Teams are all out if 6 wickets are lost, rather than the usual 10.
• The first 5 overs of each innings will all be bowled from one end of the pitch, with the other 5 overs bowled from the other end.
• Fielding team must bowl 10 overs within 45 minutes, or they lose a fielder during the final over.
• The batting team can claim a 3rd powerplay over by hitting two sixes in the initial two powerplay overs.
• Fans will be able to vote to decide the timing of a mystery-free hit in each innings. This delivery will see the batters not being dismissed in almost any possible way.
