There are only three formats in international cricket, but there have been a total of 5 formats in professional cricket, which include Test, ODI, T20, T10 and The Hundred League. Meanwhile, another format has been prepared jointly by the West Indies Cricket Board and the organizers of the Caribbean Premier League. The name of this format is The 6IXTY. This tournament will be played in the West Indies in August this year, in which men’s and women’s teams will participate.
Chris Gayle, who became the brand ambassador of this league, has told about some rules of The Sixty tournament. A total of 6 teams will participate in The 6IXTY Men’s Tournament, while a total of 3 teams will participate in the Women’s Tournament. Giving information about this tournament, Chris Gayle has told that 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 you bowled slow, then one fielder would have to be reduced.
Caribbean opener Chris Gayle further said that 30 balls will be bowled from one end, while the remaining 30 balls will be bowled from the other end. Gayle further said that if the team hits 2 sixes in the first 12 balls, then the powerplay of one over will be available, which can be taken between 3 and 9 overs, but if it does not happen, the powerplay will not be available. 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.
