T20 world cup Final : What happens if rained off
Pakistan and England will be locking horns with each other in the all-important ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 Final game at the iconic MCG on Sunday. Both teams are coming off clinical wins in their respective semi-final games.
Never mind the controllables and one-percenters that usually dominate post-match platitudes. Six weeks ago, after England had cruised back into the lead of their topsy-turvy seven-match series in Pakistan, Saqlain Mushtaq was roundly lampooned for suggesting that the “laws of nature” were ruling the fortunes of his team.
- Match: England vs Pakistan
- Date: 13th November 2022
- Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne
And yet, even amid the brickbats, Pakistan’s head coach could be forgiven for feeling a little bewildered by the fluctuations he was being expected to oversee.
One day prior to collapsing to 28 for 4 in pursuit of an outlandish 212, he had witnessed Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan romp to a 200-run target in a single bewitching stand.
You cannot teach nor tame such feral genius, let alone legislate against it – on any given night in Karachi, let alone on the most imposing stage of them all.
T20I Head to Head : England 18 – 9 Pakistan. England have also won both the encounters between the sides in T20 WCs, the last of them coming in 2010. These two sides only recently played a thrilling seven-match series that England edged 4-3.
What happens if T20 world cup Final rained off
After some days of sunshine in this World Cup, we’re back to how it all started in the Super 12s.
The met department has forecast a soggy weekend ahead in Melbourne with probability of rain as high as 90% at match start time.
There is a reserve day allocated for Monday but rain will remain a factor even then. The MCG pitch has offered good bounce and carry but the average first-innings score of 167 this tournament is the second highest among venues in this tournament.
Playing Conditions In knockout games, a minimum of 10 overs a side is needed to constitute a match.
The officials will make every effort to complete the game on Sunday. The overs will be reduced before the need for a reserve day is necessitated. Should the game begin and stop again thereafter, it will resume from that point at 15:00 local hours on the reserve day.
Also should the game need a Monday finish, the officials will have four extra hours to get the game finished.
The corresponding figure for Sunday is 30 minutes more than the scheduled close of play. If there is not enough time to get a result over two days, the trophy will be shared.
