T10 leagues are not new to the cricket fans, but the rules of this tournament may amaze some fans. In 6ixty, the batting team will get a powerplay of two overs at the beginning, where there will be fielding restrictions.

If the batting team manages to hit two sixes in the first two overs, then they will get a powerplay of one extra over, which will be called the floating third-over powerplay. They will not get that powerplay over if they fail to hit two sixes in the first two overs.

Also, there will be no change of ends after every over. The ends will change at the completion of the fifth over, meaning five overs will be bowled from one end and the final five overs will be bowled from another end. Interestingly, the batting team will not have 10 wickets in this game, as the number of maximum wickets is six.

Here are the rules as listed by a Twitter user:

“6IXTY” – new tournament to kick start on August 24th for 5 days. – 60 balls with 6 wickets – Two overs of PP – You can get 3rd PP if you hit 2 sixes in first 12 balls – No bowler can bowl more than 2 overs – One fielder will be removed if you don’t finish within 45 min.”
