If today’s final and tomorrow’s reserve-day is also canceled due to rain, then who will become the champion, what do the rules say?
In the event of rain, the first priority would be to complete the shortened match on Sunday, meaning overs would be reduced before a safe day. If this match has started on Sunday but could not be completed then it will start from where it stopped on the reserve day. Once the toss has taken place, the match will be considered ‘live’. The match will start at 7:00 pm local time and if there is no play, the match will be held on a reserve day on Monday, in which it will start at 3:00 pm local time. The last time the 2019 ODI World Cup semi-final between India and New Zealand was played on both days due to rain.
Is this the rule?
The tournament rules for the final state that even if a safe day is given, every effort will be made to finish the match on the scheduled day, with provision for reducing overs. If the minimum number of overs required for a match cannot be bowled on the scheduled day, the match will be completed on the reserve day. If the match has started on the scheduled day and the overs have been reduced after rain interruption but further play cannot take place, then the match will start on the reserve day with the same ball that was to be bowled on the previous day. If the overs are reduced due to rain, then the team batting second should also get at least 10 overs to achieve the target. If this does not happen, then England and Pakistan will be declared joint winners.
