CWI tweaks T10 to introduce 6 wickets, 60 balls 6IXTY

Cricket West Indies (CWI) has announced to tweak T10, adding more colours and pace to it, introducing a tournament name 6IXTY. It will be a 6 wickets 60 balls tournament and will be played from 24th to 28th August.

The first edition of the contest will be composed of three women’s teams and six women’s teams. CWI announced that it will be played in St Kitts & Nevis. Making a statement on it, CWI added,

This revolutionary format will see brand new innovations that will change T10 cricket and make the game even faster-paced and action-packed,”

In order to involve the fans in the match, there will be fans’ vote to determine the timing of a “mystery free hit” where the bowler can not dismiss that batsman. Each batting side will have two power-play overs. The third power play can be unclosed by cracking two sixes in the first 12 balls and this extra power-play over can be taken at any time between overs 3-9.

Furthermore, rather than alternate overs from different ends, there will be 30 balls delivered from one end before the action switches to the other end for the final 30 balls. These 30 balls will be delivered as 5 separate overs, with no bowler being able to bowl more than 2 overs for the innings.

As per rules, if a team does not bowl overs within the allowed time a member of their team is removed from the field for the final six balls.
