The Caribbean Premier League and West Indies Cricket will launch a T10 tournament named “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 August 24-28 in St. Kitts, just before the CPL season.

In the tournament, a total of six male teams will participate, while three female teams will play in the tournament.
In this tournament, the rules are a bit different from other leagues. Matches will be 6 wickets. If 6 wickets fall, the team will be eliminated. 60 balls will be available to play one round. If the team was playing slowly, a defensive player should be reduced.
The 30 balls will be thrown to one side, while the remaining 30 balls will be thrown to the other side. Meanwhile, fans can also vote for additional runs to see which ball should be a free kick. This will be called a hit without mystery, on which the drummer will not be out.

If it helps attract a new audience and is a lot of fun, then that’s fine.
