T20 World Cup final: What if rain cancels India-South Africa

The ICC granted an additional 250 minutes for the semi-finals in response to the absence of a contingency day. The final has the same leeway to be completed on schedule. The game is scheduled to begin at 10:30 AM local time, however there is a possibility of a 4-hour and 10-minute delay due to rain.

The ICC regulations give priority to completing the match within the designated time, even if it means playing a game with fewer overs. The International Cricket Council (ICC) states that if play is halted on the designated day, the umpires will utilize any additional time that is available and, if required, decrease the number of overs in order to attain a result on the same day.

Therefore, it is required that every team plays 10 overs. In the event that inclement weather forces the cancellation of the match on 29 June, it will be rescheduled to take place on Sunday, 30 June. The International Cricket Council (ICC) states that in order to secure a result, each team must have had the chance to bat for at least ten (10) overs.

If a mid-game interruption occurs before the second innings begins, the match can be extended until the next day, while still maintaining the original 20 overs per side. The reserve day match continues from the point when it was interrupted, with the potential for a reduction in the number of overs based on the prevailing conditions.

Despite the possibility of inclement weather necessitating a Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) game, the International Cricket Council (ICC) is determined to conclude the final on Saturday. In the event of inclement weather, the final may be rescheduled to Sunday, June 30th.
