According to the competition regulations, the batting side shall be divided into five pairs and each pair shall bat for five overs. Batsmen have unlimited “lives” but each dismissal results in 10 runs being deducted from the team’s total. Batsmen are allowed to change ends after each dismissal except on the last ball of the over. Each player on the fielding side must bowl at least two overs, with the exception of the wicket-keeper. Each team can commence its innings with a score of two hundred runs.
The winning team shall be the side scoring the higher number of runs after deduction for dismissals has been made. In the event of a tie the players on each side can bowl one delivery to the stumps and the team scoring the most hits will be the winner.
