PAK vs ENG Final: Now it is the turn of the title match in the T20 World Cup. The teams of Pakistan and England will take on each other in the final match at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday. Rain can be a big hurdle in this match. The forecast of the Meteorological Department is going to break the hearts of cricket fans. Keeping this situation in mind, the ICC has spoken to Cricket Australia and Melbourne Cricket Ground Management. After this conversation, some changes have been made in the rules for the final match. If need be, these rules will be used during the title match.
Changes in the rules for the final match
The final match between Pakistan and England will start at 1.30 pm Indian time. More than 90 percent rain has been predicted during this match to be held in Melbourne. In this case, more time may be required to complete the match. After the change in the rule, the timing of the start of the match will remain the same but there will be a freedom to take it beyond the stipulated time to complete it.

A reserve day has also been kept for the final match. That is, if the match is not completed due to rain on November 13, it will be played on November 14. According to the change in the rule, on this day also, if needed, the match can be played beyond the scheduled time. That is, a few more hours have been added to the match. Explain that under the change in the rules, a provision has also been made to start the match before the scheduled time on the day of reserve day, but it will not be a fresh start. Where the match stopped on the previous day, the game will proceed from there.
2 hours added to the scheduled time of the final match
During the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia, about 4-5 matches were washed out due to rain. The ICC does not want the final match to have the same outcome, so it has increased the time of the title match by two hours. If this extra 2 hours is needed due to rain then it can be used.
There is no change in this rule already fixed for the result
Despite all these changes in the rules, it will be mandatory to have at least 10-10 overs for the result of the final match. That is, both the teams will have to play at least 1-0 over match, so that the result of the match can come. If this is also not possible, then Pakistan and England will have to be content with being joint winners.
