This format saw the teams ranked fourth and fifth face off in an Eliminator, with the winner taking on the team placed third in the group in a knock-out qualifier. The teams played first and second, faced off in a qualifier with the winner making the final while the losing team took on the winner of the knock-out qualifier in what was called the Challenger.

The winner of the Challenger faced the winner of the match between the number one and two sides.

The Big Bash League playoffs format for this season is expected to see the top four teams make it to the finals with the top two facing off in the first match and the teams ranked third and fourth taking on each other in a knockout eliminator. The winner of the first playoff makes the final while the losing team will take on the winner of the Eliminator to decide the second finalist.
