Sunday boost: Additional time now available for the T20 World Cup Final

T20 World Cup

The ICC has shown its commitment to ensuring a result is achieved in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Final by securing an extension of the permitted operating hours at the MCG for Sunday’s clash between Pakistan and England, which it means that the tournament officials have been able to extend the playing time.

Tournament officials have now been able to add an additional hour of overtime for the game taking place at the MCG on Sunday night, meaning there is now a total of 90 minutes available in case you miss any play.

That means play can continue until midnight local time should additional overtime be required on Sunday.

If the match must be completed on Monday, the match will be restarted at the point where the last ball was played, but this will only be used if the match cannot be completed on Sunday.

If at any time the umpires agree that the ground, weather or light conditions, or any other circumstances, are dangerous or unreasonable, they will immediately suspend the game or not allow it to start or resume.

The decision as to whether conditions are bad enough to warrant such action is the sole decision of the referees, after consultation with ICC match referee Ranjan Madugalle.
