This is a round-robin/knockout tournament, with round robin play running until July 67th and taking place in locations such as Old Trafford, Riverside Ground and Lord's. The two semi-final matches will take place on July 9th (Old Trafford) and July 11th (Edgbaston) respectively.

All ten teams will play each other once during the Group Stage part of the tournament, which means that there will be a total of 45 group stage matches. All ten teams are in the same table, with the top four teams at the end of Group Stage play moving on to the semi-finals.

Here are the ten teams that will be taking part this year:

England
South Africa

As the host nation, England has a distinct advantage as they will have the crowds behind them.
