The format is completely from the last two editions of the T20 World Cup where eight teams featured in the group stage before moving on to the Super 12 stage.

In this edition of the showpiece event, four teams will play against each other once in the Super 8 stage. The top 2 teams from Group 1 and Group 2 will be qualified for the semifinals, which will take place on June 26 and 27.

If two or more teams are tied on equal points, then the team with a better Net Run Rate (NRR) compared to other team will secure the top two finish in the respective group and qualify for the semifinals.

If the matches get washed out due to rain or bad weather, then there will be no reserve day and both teams will share a point. Infact, there won't be reserve day for the semifinals as well.
