Three groups of nine teams each. Each team will play eight matches at the League stage.
Three teams from Groups A and B, and two from Group C, will qualify for the Knockout phase.

If in the Knockout phase, a result on first innings is not obtained at the end of the fifth day, then the match will be extended into a sixth day.
