Rules for the 6IXTY
Six wickets will be there instead of 10 wickets in the match
The batting team can have a window to unlock the third powerplay over after smashing two sixes in the two-over powerplay.
Both teams will have to bowl five continuous overs from each end instead of switching ends after each over.
The penalty will be imposed on the team in the game for slow over-rate. If any of the two teams can’t bowl the overs in the allotted time then a fielder will be sent outside for the final six balls.
One of the most innovative and exciting rules is that fans will be able to vote for ‘free-hit’ through an app or website.
