Unlike other cricket tournaments, the format has a format rather than an auction.

Trent Rocket will get to choose the first player.

Each side will get 100 seconds to make their pick in each round.

As far as hiding salary is concerned. This is pre-decided and the time of their selection will also be taken into consideration. Players selected in the first and second rounds will be awarded a sum of £ 125,000 while players drafted in rounds 13 or 14 will earn £ 30,000.

There will be no drafting of women players and the franchise will have to negotiate with the cricketers instead.

Each team will be allowed to have three foreign players in both their squad and XI.

Teams will get to take wildcards after next season's Vitality T20 Blast. Wildcard players will be entitled to a £ 30,000 contract.

The hundred will begin on October 20, 2020.

The 100-ball competition is a new tournament that includes city-based franchise sides, separated from England's traditional county system.

Teams will bat 100 balls with overs, which will normally consist of six balls, which will last for 10 consecutive balls in five or 10 balls with the bowlers.
