All Open T-20 teams
As a result of all the rain we have had in the past month majority of Open T-20 games have ended up in N/R. The EC has had numerous Open T-20 2 teams approaching us to share their opinions about the situation and the fairness to all teams who have entered the tournament with many of them playing only 1 out of their 5 games that were scheduled.
The EC has discussed this issue and unanimously decided to change the tournament format as stated below. We have tried to be fair to all teams, the teams that are topping the pool as well teams that have not played more than one game.
We also had to take in to account the shortage of ground availability we are facing at this time of the year. Hence, taking all these factors in to consideration the EC has decided on the below change in tournament format:
Top 4 teams (Rankings Image attached) will automatically qualify for Quarterfinals.
The top 4 teams are:
1. PCC Sloggers
2. Inzi 329
3. DCC T20
The next 16 teams will also be ranked 5 to 20 and will play 2 rounds of knockout between themselves. 
1st knockout round - 8 teams out of the 16 qualify (They maintain their rank given above) for 2nd knockout round
2nd knockout round - 4 teams out of the 8 qualify for Quarterfinals (New ranking will be given 5 to 8)
Quarterfinal - 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6 & 4 vs 5 ranks (1 to 4 and 5 to 8 rankings will be maintained henceforth)
Semifinal - 4 teams from quarterfinal
Finals - 2 teams from Semifinals

Schedule has been uploaded to cricclubs. 
Please Note: Due to limited ground availability teams playing each other might end up playing at neutral venues or may have to play back to back.

2018-09-24: 2018 NTCA OPEN T-20 2 schedule has been uploaded. Teams please verify all your players are available on your roster. 

2018-07-18: Clubs,

We also want to encourage the captains and the umpires to start the games on time and if teams are not present; then enforce penalties per the by-laws.
