DXC will extend their long-term partnership with NT Cricket to also partner with the Melbourne Stars throughout the tournament, highlighting their dedication to the development of the game and cricket in the Northern Territory.
Five teams will compete in the tournament, with the Renegades Academy to play against the Stars Academy, Northern Territory, Papua New Guinea and Cricket Australia XI.
The top two teams will play off in a Final on Sunday 21 August.
