The T20 World Cup is set to be held on Sunday, November 13, between England and Pakistan. The weather on Sunday doesn’t look very sunny and in that case, Monday is the backup date. However, on Monday as well, the weather doesn’t look better as well. Monday has a 95% chance of rain and 5-10mm is predicted.
ICC has made some transformations in the playing rules of the finale. The Event Technical Committee (ETC) of ICC has increased the provision of additional playing time on the reserve day to four hours from the original provision of two hours (clause 13.7.3 of the Playing Conditions). This change has been made in case more time is needed to complete the match and get a result.
The team batting second will be getting a minimum of 10 overs in the final if the game isn’t completed on the first day. The team will get a reserve day on Monday at 15:00 AEDT.
The team management will try their best to complete the game on Sunday and will minimize the overs if necessary. In case, the match continues till Monday, the game will be resumed at the point where the last ball was played. Thirty minutes of additional time will be available for the match to be completed on Sunday. For Monday, an additional of four hours will be given to the team.
If the final score is tied, a Super Over will be played. If the weather intervenes and the Super Over cannot be completed, Pakistan and England will be declared as joint winners.
The match will get broadcast on Star Disney+Hotstar.
Earlier in the Semifinals, Pakistan defeated New Zealand and England beat India to enter the finals.
