As cricket readies to make its return in South Africa, innovation seems to be at the centre of it all. Cricket South Africa have announced their return to cricket with an all-new format & Rajasthan Royals batsman, David Miller will feature in the game too. Here’s the format:

3 teams
2 halves
1 match

The format has many different rules and is something we’ve definitely never seen before. Here are the key rules that you may need to note down before you watch the game on 27th June.

-      Instead of a playing XI, teams will field a Playing 8

-      A match will consist of a maximum of 36 overs.

-      There are two halves – 18 overs each.

-      In all there will be 3 innings. Each team plays one with 12 overs.

-      A team bats and bowls 6 overs each against the other 2 teams.

-      Bowlers can bowl a maximum of 3 overs to each opponent.

-      After the 7th wicket falls, the last batsman plays on.

-      The winner, simple - the team with the most runs.


David Miller has been named in one of the three squads, named Kites, to be captained by Quinton de Kock. Former Royals player and CSA’s Director of Cricket, Graeme Smith is excited to see the players back in action. “It’s been quite some time since fans of cricket worldwide have been able to consume the game, we all love. I know the players are itching to get back to action as well.”

Miller will be a centre-figure with the bat for his side with his wide range of powerful striking all around the park. He will be the first Rajasthan Royals player to play a competitive game of cricket ever since most countries went into lockdown.
