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 permitted opening hours at the MCG for Sunday’s clash between Pakistan and England, meaning tournament officials were able to continue extending playing time.

Tournament officials have now been able to add an extra hour of overtime for play to take place at the MCG on Sunday evening, meaning a total of 90 minutes is now available in the event of a loss of play.

This means play can continue until midnight local time if extra overtime is needed on Sunday.

If the match is due to end on Monday, the match will resume from 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 together that pitch, weather or light conditions, or any other circumstances are dangerous or unreasonable, they shall immediately suspend play or permit play not to commence or resume.

The decision as to whether the conditions are so poor as to warrant such action rests with the referees alone, after consultation with ICC Match Referee Ranjan Madugalle.
