The inaugural edition of 6IXTY is set to run between August 24th and 28th in St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. It is a formulated version of T10 but with different rules. According to the recent developments, all six franchises have announced their squads, and we have noticed four Pakistani cricketers roped in by three different teams.
The ex-Pakistani cricketer, who has been enlisted in multiple controversies during or after his career, Mohammad Amir, will don Jamaica Tallahwas dress. He will celebrate the moments with counterpart Imad Wasim, who has been nowhere around the national squad.
Moreover, the son of Moin Khan, Azam Khan, has been contracted by Barbados Royals. And, the skipper of the Pakistan U19 team, Qasim Akram, will play for the home side, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.
As far as the rules of the competition are concerned, 6IXTY is a 10-over tournament, and 60 legal balls will be delivered through each inning. However, a team is only allowed to play till its 6th wicket, which means no side can bat further after the fall of its final sixth wicket.
The league also has some perks, according to which a batting team can unlock its third powerplay by hitting two sixes in the first two powerplays. Also, Fans will be able to vote to decide the timing of a “Mystery Free Hit” in each innings. (This will be a delivery on which the batters can’t be dismissed in almost any way.)
