Here’s everything you need to know about the inaugural edition of The 6ixty which begins on August 24.
The first edition of THE 6IXTY begins on August 24 and will see men’s and women’s teams compete in a new 60-ball tournament.
Six teams will participate in the men’s variant – the Barbados Royals, Jamaica Tallawahs, Saint.

The first edition of THE 6IXTY will run from 24 to 28 August in St Kitts & Nevis at Warner Park.
What are the rules of The 6ixty?
⦿ Each batting team has six wickets – at the fall of the sixth wicket they are all out
⦿ Each batting team has two PowerPlay overs. They can unlock a third PowerPlay by hitting two sixes in the first 12 balls. This extra PowerPlay over can be taken at any time between overs 3-9
⦿ There will be 30 balls bowled from one end before the action switches to the other end for the final 30 balls
⦿ The 30 balls will be delivered as 5 separate overs, with no bowler being able to bowl more than 2 overs for the innings.
⦿ If teams do not bowl their overs within the allotted time a member of their team is removed from the field for the final six balls
⦿ Fans will vote for the timing of a “Mystery Free Hit” where a batter can’t be dismissed by the bowler
