The Change

Unlike previous editions where it was mandatory for the teams to play two warm-up fixtures before the start of the tournament this time around each team has the option to decide if they want to take part in warm-up fixtures or not as it might be hectic for some teams to play practice matches due to jam-packed cricket calendar.
