    Cricket West Indies announces THE 6IXTY, a 60-ball tournament

    There is a new format coming to the Caribbean in 2022 with Cricket West Indies and the Caribbean Premier League bringing you THE 6IXTY – Cricket’s Power Game.

    The first edition of THE 6IXTY will see men’s and women’s teams compete in a new 60-ball tournament featuring many of the best cricketers from around the world with SKYEXCH the title sponsor for 2022.

    This revolutionary format will see brand new innovations that will change T10 cricket and make the game even faster paced and action packed.

    Fans can look forward to the following exciting new rules:


    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 Free Hit” where a batter can’t be dismissed by the bowler


    The first edition of THE 6IXTY will take place from 24 to 28 August in St Kitts & Nevis at one of world cricket’s fastest scoring grounds – Warner Park. Future expansion plans of the 6IXTY include the potential of multiple events at different locations around the Caribbean and beyond.

    THE 6IXTY is a joint venture between Cricket West Indies and the Caribbean Premier League with the two organisations working closely together to create another world-class event.

    Ricky Skerritt, President of Cricket West Indies, said: “THE 6IXTY has come about because of a close collaboration between CPL and CWI which is the way forward. I am really excited about the innovation, excitement and entertainment that it is going to bring to the fans.”

    Pete Russell, Hero CPL’s CEO, said: “This is a hugely exciting moment for both CPL and Cricket West Indies as we create a tournament that will see cricket fans brought closer to the game. There will be world-class men’s and women’s cricketers taking part in a fantastic event for the Caribbean and this combined with cutting-edge innovations, signals a great moment for all fans of West Indian cricket.”

    ABOUT THE 6IXTY:

    THE 6IXTY is a 60-ball cricket tournament featuring men’s and women’s teams. The first event will take place from 24 to 28 August. This fast-paced and innovative format, known as Cricket’s Power Game, will see the world’s best cricketers entertain fans around the world. THE 6IXTY is a joint venture between Cricket West Indies and Caribbean Premier League

    It seems like basically t10 however you have 6 wickets to play with rather than 10. The 30 balls from one end, and than the switch from the other doesn't sound like too much of a bad idea. But the rest sounds pretty lame. Dont like the idea of the fans voting mystery free hit.

    Rather if they wanted that concept, they have a an over ( were batting team cant be out) they can have it between the first 5 overs, can be known as a power over as an example, and its allowed for 1 over only. Both teams get it.

    The idea of fans voting for a mystery free hit does not seem great.

    All in all not a fan of this but might give it a watch or 2 too see what it looks like

    So a bowler picks up a wicket... Goes ahead and celebrates it...and then gets to know that it doesn't count because some random Rajesh sitting in Kanpur decided that the ball he bowled will be a free hit. You can't make this up.

    People's attention span is getting shorter and the continued tinkering of cricket is doing a lot more harm. Tests, ODI's and T20's must not change at all and I highly doubt one of the formats would disappear, it just won't happen no matter what. The introduction of T20 leagues has made it feel as if there is less international cricket being played these days I just don't know why (I haven't been paying attention to the international cricketing calendar as of recent). In Western countries, there's a bit of a buzz surrounding these T20 leagues but nothing substantial from what I've seen, they're not as popular as you might think. I know Indian fans who do watch IPL but don't really have a deep love for it, they usually prefer watching the Barclays Premier league which is more widely accepted and more popular globally. Introducing more formats and more leagues suggests that new generation cricketers would want to be playing more of these pyjama leagues due to being paid millions, thus reducing the interest in playing for their international team. And with this new format announced by WI, I feel as if there is not much attention being given to developing new young cricketers who can compete in international cricket. Cricket as a sport should not try and copy football, it looks like a cheap carbon copy of it.

    I love how marketers and administrators trying to market cricket keep coming up with brilliant new solutions... how about less cricket than the other form of cricket which is already a form of less cricket?

    That way people who don't like cricket will have less to dislike!

    Next we will see “THE ZERO”. A format designed for people who don’t traditionally see themselves as cricket fans. The concept is that you sit down to watch a game of cricket, and they put on a game of football instead.

    So you think this is going to be a success. Which means fans are going to show/consume this format. Which would validate this move from Cricket WI.

    Why unnecessarily drag India into this discussion? This is disrespectful. Blame WI cricket board for this. In case you don't know India was among the countries who were not in favor of T20 format getting official international status.

    These formats are to bring in new people to the game - for the converted, we will look at these with amusement/bewilderment and move on.

    I noticed the same n thought it should’ve been 6ty or 6sixty

    But if you pronounce 6IXTY without pausing, it sounds as “6 sixty” - that is, 6 wicket 60 balls.

    This is a good thing.

    All of this - the 100, the 6ixty, the T10 - will kill T20s as we know it. T20s have already been found out like ODIs a few years ago, which explain the annual rule changes and the drift to these supposedly new formats.

    Long live test cricket which doesn't need any of this tinkering or mindless innovation.

    Cricket is such an abomination at the moment.

    Money invades all sports - Football is awash with it, tennis, now Golf.

    No sport allows itself to be disfigured and ruined the way ICC does.

    People don't realize that but for test cricket, the whole sport will die. Ironic I know.

    Take out test cricket and soon people will lose all respect for, and worse, interest in the pantomime each country is serving up in the name of this wonderful sport.

    "the Toss"

    innovative franchise tournament. Plenty of desperate Indian businessman willing to spend millions of dollars with millions of Indian cricket fans excited to watch this.

    Lots of Mamoon and Joshila types will emerge to tell us this tournament is better than the PSL because of the amount of Indian money it generates.

    What's missing in this 6ixty is the Pakistani gully way of selecting teams where opposing captains take turns. They do taali with the other person and call out the player you want in your team.

    This is what happens when you come up with abominations like The Hundred. Aren't T20 leagues profitable enough?

    It's bad enough that we have to put up with the inevitable demise of 50 over cricket but now we have to accommodate 10 overs a side as well?

    Ridiculous.

    Having said that, the days of test cricket being the premier format of the game are well and truly over. Most boards make losses while hosting tests and that should not be the case. There is no future for the format except for a few teams.

    Lol what's the guarantee that those fans who are liking T20 leagues now won't get bored of it after 5-7 years? That day is not far when IPL and other leagues will change their format to T10s. When this happens, new set of fans will come up. They will most likely call T20s boring and slow.

    If BCCI is trying to compete with football then they will have to bring the duration of these matches to around 90-120 mins. T10s are perfect for them.

    There is no evidence so far that T20 cricket is losing popularity. On what basis are you saying that "the day is not far when leagues change to T10" ? Do you have any numbers to show that viewership is declining? Or that the format is not profitable for boards? Or are you just shooting blanks?

    The issue is not even about BCCI. Not sure why you brought BCCI and IPL into this. Test cricket is profitable for BCCI and so it does not matter.

    On the other hand, other boards make losses while hosting most teams for tests. Zimbabwe cricket loses half a million dollars ir something just trying to host 1 test series.

    If you introduce multiple limited overs formats, there will be cannibalisation of the earlier format. That is completely unnecessary.

    The issue is not even about BCCI. Not sure why you brought BCCI and IPL into this. Test cricket is profitable for BCCI and so it does not matter.

    On the other hand, other boards make losses while hosting most teams for tests. Zimbabwe cricket loses half a million dollars ir something just trying to host 1 test series.

    If you introduce multiple limited overs formats, there will be cannibalisation of the earlier format. That is completely unnecessary.
    Similar arguments were made in 2007 that ODI's won't lose popularity and here we are. Every country will come up with these T10 leagues eventually just like T20s.

    I remember playing 6 a side tournaments back in the day where 5 of your side bowled one over each.

    I guess they could have been marketed as the 30.

    Won't be surprised if that's launched as a format.

    I think we should have a world cup every week; all teams need to do is win based on a toss of a coin.

    I actually quite like the sound of it.

    99.9% of people here criticising it will most certainly give it a try as well.

    The most fun I ever had playing cricket was playing these 8 overs a side game tournaments on the streets of karachi.

    You've mixed up cause and effect.

    The 6IXTY is delighted to announce that Chris Gayle, the leading T20 player of all time, will be the Brand Ambassador for the new 60-ball tournament which gets underway in St Kitts & Nevis on 24 August 2022.

    The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and Chris Gayle have confirmed that he will not play in CPL this year, to concentrate instead on The 6IXTY for the 2022 season.

    Gayle said: “I am going for the shorter format this year. I am genuinely excited about the current innovations in the 6ixty and seeing how they play out. In particular I am looking forward to the mystery team ball and hitting two sixes in the first 12 balls to unlock a third PowerPlay over.”

    Gayle, the self-proclaimed Universe Boss, will be playing in the tournament and will be acting as host for the six teams. Gayle has the most runs, most hundreds, most sixes and the most scores of fifty or more in T20 cricket so he perfectly suits Cricket’s Power Game.

    The tournament will feature six men’s teams and three women’s teams who will be fighting for their own version of the Universe Boss Trophy, named in Chris Gayle’s honour.

    Gayle has been working with the tournament organisers to develop this innovative and exciting format.

    Fans can look forward to the following at The 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 Free Hit” where a batter can’t be dismissed by the bowler.

    Chris Gayle said: “It is a great feeling to actually have a trophy named after The Universe Boss, something fantastic, and I am really and truly looking forward to it. I am sure people will ask if this is real, a trophy named for Chris Gayle. Yes, it is happening, and I am really happy about it. I am looking forward to all the innovations.”
