However, in case of falling victim to Code 19, the team will be allowed to field all 11 local players.
The fielding side must complete 19 overs of the innings in the allotted time, otherwise for the last over of the match the team will be required to field one player less than 30 yards out of the circle.
One day has been reserved for the final. If the match is not completed on the reserve day then after 30 league matches the team at the top of the points table will be declared the champion.
