A total of four teams, including SLC Reds, SLC Blues, SLC Greens, and SLC Greys will take on each other to win the prized trophy. Each team will play the other three teams once in the group stage fixtures. After the group stage matches are finished, the top two teams will face each other in the finals.
The eight-day tournament will see two matches being played in a day, with the first fixture playing in the afternoon and the second being a night match. It must be noted that the tournament is taking place as a replacement for the Lanka Premier League (LPL), which was expected to start this month, but has been dropped due to the economic turmoil in the country.
