All six Momentum One Day Cup teams play each other twice in a home-and-away round-robin format.
The top four teams at the end of the round-robin stage compete in the semi finals to decide who plays the Momentum One Day Cup final.
The team that tops the table will host the fourth placed side in the first semi final while second will host third to decide the final.
The hosting ground will be decided by which of the two teams in the final finished highest in the round-robin stage.
