The Solidarity Cup will be the showcase event for the new cricket format ‘3 Team Cricket‘. This match will see 24 South African cricketers in three teams, playing two halves in one match.
The three teams competing in the Solidarity Cup are:
- Takealot Eagles captained by AB de Villiers
- OUTsurance Kingfishers captained by Heinrich Klaasen
- Mr D Food Kites captained by Quinton de Kock
The match will be held on 18th July at 2:30 pm IST.
Rules of this new format – 3TCricket
- This new format ‘3TCricket’ will have 36 overs in total divided into two halves of 18 overs each.
- In the first half, each of the three teams will face 6 overs from one of their opponents.
- In the second half, each of the three teams will once again resume batting and face another 6 overs from their other opponent.
- The team with the most runs will win gold, the second team will win silver and the third will get bronze.
- Each team will consist of 8 players.
- There is also the last man standing rule whereby the last remaining batsman will continue batting even without a batting partner. But he can only score in boundaries and twos since retaining the strike is non-negotiable.
