The 6IXTY is cricket’s newest format with a number of innovations that will bring fans closer to the action than ever before.

Fans can look forward to the following at The SKYEXCH 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 Fan Ball” where a batter can’t be dismissed by the bowler

ABOUT THE 6IXTY:
