This season comprised 15 regular matches, instead of twelve from the 2006–07 season. This allowed each team to play every other team once.
Teams received 2 points for a win, 1 for a tie or no result, and 0 for a loss. The top two teams, Western Australia and Victoria, played in the final at the WACA Ground in Perth. These two teams also qualified for the 1st edition of the Champions Twenty20 League, expected to be hosted by India in December 2008.
