Additional time extended to 90 mins for Pak-England final amid rain threats

MELBOURNE: As rain threats loom over Melbourne Cricket Ground, International Cricket Council on Sunday announced an extension to the permitted operating hours in the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup between Pakistan and England in order to ensure that the result is achieved on the same day.

According to the governing body of cricket, an additional hour of extra time for play has been added for the final clash to be held at the MCG on Sunday night, which means a total of 90 minutes is now available in case rain hampers the play at any stage of the game.

Although every effort will be made to complete the final on the scheduled day, a reserve is also available on Monday in case the rain washes out the match on Sunday.

Earlier ICC also increased the additional playing time on the reserve day to four hours from the original provision of two hours.

If the match cannot be completed on Sunday, the game will resume at the point where the last ball was played on the reserve day.

It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan will be aiming to lift the T20 World Cup for the second time as they take on England in the megaevent’s final.
