Strict penalties will be imposed on teams not completing their allotted overs in the agreed time. Each team should report 30 minutes prior to their match on the ground.

- The Result: Each side must have faced (or had the opportunity to face) five overs in order to constitute a match. If the game is interrupted by weather, an Eliminator should take place. If the weather does not permit either of the above two, then the result will be decided by the toss of a coin.
- Tie: In case of a tie, the result will be decided through Eliminator. If a tie still prevails after the Eliminator, then the team with maximum no. of boundaries will be declared the winner. In case, no. of boundaries are same, then the result will be decided by a toss of coin.
- Eliminator: Each team nominates three batsmen and one bowler to play a one-over per side “mini- match”. In turn, each side bats one over bowled by the one nominated opposition bowler, with their innings over if they lose two wickets before the over is completed. The side with the higher score from their over wins.
- Rules regarding bowling: A bowler shall be limited to two bouncers (ICC rule) per over. If a bowler delivers a third bouncer in an over, the umpire shall signal a no-ball and caution the bowler, and inform the captain of the fielding side, batsman, and the other umpire of what has occurred. This caution will apply throughout the innings. Should the bowler again bowl more than two bouncers in an over, he will be given a final warning. Should this transgression happen again, the bowler will be taken off and will not bowl again in the innings? Any balls remaining in the over shall be bowled by another bowler.
NOTE– In case of deliveries over waist height, it shall be given a no-ball, but if a delivery is potently dangerous in the eyes of the leg umpire (BEAMER), the bowler shall be a given a warning about the same and the captain shall be informed. The same bowler bowling another similar delivery on any instance that follows shall be removed from bowling for the entire match, and his quota shall be completed by another player.
- Over Rate Penalties: If a team fails to bowl the requisite number of overs in the time set, the innings will end at the scheduled time and the average number of runs rounded to the next number and multiplied by the number of overs lost due to slow bowling will be added to its opponents score. The team batting second will only receive the number of overs it bowled calculated on 4 minutes per over. In case the team bowling second also bowls less number of overs the same procedure of adding the average runs per over multiplied by number of overs lost will apply. Example. Team A bats first, scores 60 Runs and game is stopped at 15 overs. Its average run rate is 4. Overs lost 5. Total runs added 20. Final score 80. Team B has to score 80 Runs in 15 Overs to be bowled in 60 minutes.
