Each country will play 3 home series and 3 away series in this cycle. There’s also a change in the points system. Instead of the entire series, points will be given on a match-by-match basis. Teams will be awarded a total of 12 points for each match they win in this cycle, six for a tie, four for a draw, and zero for a loss. Hence, with each team getting to play three home series, unpredictable results might also be witnessed.
