What format are you?

Blue and Red format dictate the modified rules and playing conditions, for example; type of ball used, number of overs etc. 

NCC take preexisting friendships and skill set into consideration when determining which format a player will participate in. Evaluation is also conducted within the first few weeks of training.

Teams and players may be reevaluated after the first few round matches have been played to ensue balance and fair play.
