There will be 6 squads of 14 players each selected by the Zonal Men’s Youth Selection Panels and to be announced in the coming days, with the 6 teams representing each of the 6 USA Cricket Zones.
The six teams have been separated into two pools of 3 where they will play 3 matches over the first three days of competition, all of those matches are against the 3 teams listed in the other pool. The teams will then be ranked from 1 through 6 on an open table of all six teams, based on results from the first three days, with the top two teams playing off in the National Championship Final on 13th November. The other four teams will also complete cross-over classification matches for 3rd and 5th positions. The first day of matches also double up as Conference Championship games.
