  • 3T format of a cricket match is played between 3 teams which consist of 8 players in each team. The match is played over 36 overs in 2 halves of 18 overs with the half time. Teams bat for one innings of 12 overs, split into 2 halves and they face one opponent in the first half & the other opponent in the second half.
  • In the first half, teams rotate from batting to bowling to the dugout with the starting positions determined by a draw. In the second half, teams bat in order of the highest scores in the first half. If scores are tied, the first half is reversed.
  • After the fall of 7th wicket, the last batsman stands alone. However, he can only score in even numbers of runs. If the 7th wicket falls in the first half, the team forfeits the remaining part of that half and the last batsman resumes the innings in the second half.
  • Each bowling team has the use of one new ball for their full 12 overs which is used for both opponents. A maximum of three overs per bowler is allowed.
  • Most runs wins Gold, second Silver and third Bronze. If 2 teams tie with most runs, super overs decide Gold. If all 3 teams tie, all get Gold, and in a tie for second, Silver is shared.

Even though there are some small leagues being conducted in across the world currently, it's been a long gap, since we saw the International cricketers. This match will be a treat for cricket fans, as AB de villiers returns & other International cricketers set to play the match.
