India, Pakistan, England and New Zealand have made it to the semi-finals of the T20I World Cup 2022.
Now the first semi-final match will be played between New Zealand and Pakistan on 9 November while India will face England on 10 November in Adelaide. The team winning these matches will advance to the final which will be played on November 13.
First let’s understand what is the rules of semi-finals and finals this time –
This time a reserve day has been kept for the semi-final and final match and if the game is not played on the scheduled day in case of rain, then it will be played in the reserve day.
On the other hand, if it rains in the game and a few overs have been played, but the match could not be completed on that day, then there will be a subsequent game in the reserve day.
This time the Duckworth-Lewis rule will be used in the semi-final and final match only if both the teams have played at least 10-10 overs as against the earlier practice after 5-5 overs of play. Not only this, if it happens that due to rain, both the scheduled day and the reserve day are not played, then in that case the team that is on top of their group will be declared the winner.
What if the India-England match was not played due to rain –
The match between India and England will be played on November 10 in Adelaide from 1.30 pm Indian time. If this match between the two countries is not played on the scheduled day and reserve day due to rain, then in that case India will be declared the winner and will reach the final.
The Indian team was at the top of Group 2 with a total of 8 points in the Super 12 matches, while the England team finished second in Group 1 with 7 points.
In such a situation, if the match is not played due to rain, then according to the rules of the ICC, India will be declared the winner due to being on top of their group.
