Each team was scheduled to play 03 games before reaching the Play-Off stage and then the Finals.

Vice President of Sri Lanka Cricket Mr. Jayantha Dharmadasa stated, The idea of this tournament was mooted, as we understood the need for our players to engage in some form of competitive cricket as the National players haven’t played at the highest level since the COVID-19 pandemic occurred.
