What Are The Revised Playing Conditions For T20 World Cup 2022 Final?
Rules for the T20 World Cup 2022 final have been revised for the Pakistan and England match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday. The rules are changed to prevent the rough weather conditions from spoiling the play. The revised conditions make sure that the match doesn’t get washed out with the rain.
Revised Match Conditions
- Monday is the reserve day in case the match doesn’t start on the scheduled day.
- The Event Technical Committee (ETC) amended clause 13.7.3 of the Playing Conditions to increase the additional playing time on the reserve day to four hours from two hours, in case the match doesn’t completed in the provided time.
- 10 overs per side are required to enter the knockout stage and all efforts will be put to complete the match on the scheduled day even with necessary reductions of overs.
- The match will be played on the reserve day only when the minimum number of overs (10 overs per side) aren’t played on the scheduled day.
- The match will continue on the reserve day beginning at 15h00 (9:30 AM IST).
- An additional 30 minutes are available for Sunday and extra four hours are reserved for Monday.
- A Super Over will decide the match in case of a tie.
- If Super Over can’t be played due to rough weather conditions, Pakistan and England will be declared joint winners.
It is to be noted that weather forecasts have predicted heavy rain on Sunday but ICC wants to complete the match on Sunday or Monday, only if necessary. If nothing works, both teams will share the trophy.
