Rules and regulations
- Played with 8 players per side.
- The most distinguishing feature of this form of cricket is that if a team loses 7 wickets in an innings, the remaining batsman continues to bat without a partner, instead of being stranded (according to the normal Laws of Cricket, a batsman cannot bat without a partner).
World wide recognition
This form of cricket is most recognised due to the Last man stands feature which is contrary to the usual Laws of Cricket.
The concept of "Last Man Stands" is also used in the Hong Kong Cricket Sixes tournament from 1999.
