FORMAT

The 21 teams in the tournament are split across 4 groups and across 2 regions - Central & North.

  • There are 4 groups - comprising 3 groups of 5 teams and 1 group of 6 teams
  • Each team plays 4 Group Matches
  • The TOP team from each group progresses automatically to the 'Quarter Finals'
  • The next best 2 teams from each group will progress to the 'Qualifying Finals' played on the 9th of Feb.
  • All teams 1-12 will be ranked at the conclusion of the Group Stage to determine ranking and fixtures for the knock-out round

The Knock-out Format:

Each year, Infinity Cricket has innovated and adopted knock-out formats that are tailored and suitable for the number of participating teams.

It is our intention to provide a competitive structure, where teams place pride in their performances over the Group stages and the overall position in the Group becomes important.

However, we also want to ensure a reasonable number of teams from the Group Stage have the opportunity to progress to the 'knock-out' stages of the tournament, should their performances warrant it.

It is for this reason that in this tournament - the top 12 teams from the Group Stage will have the opportunity to progress to the knock-out stage of the competition.
