Each team will play each other one time among the group members. That means, a team will play three matches during the group stages round. The top two finishers from the each group will qualify for the quarter-finals, making 6 out of 8 teams for the last eight lists. The remaining 2 void spaces in QF will be filled by the top two third finishers from the three groups.
The knock-out round will start from quarter-finals with top eight teams from the group stage round making it to this round. In quarter-final, the winner of Group A will take on the third placed team of either Group B or C. Similarly, runner-up of Group A will take on the runner-up of Group B. The winner from Group B will take on the runner-up from Group C and the last quarterfinal will be among the winner of Group C and 3rd placed team of either Group A or B.
The semi-final and final match will be played accordingly (as per the table below).
