ICC WTC Final: Reserve Day Rules Explained

With the World Test Championship final (ICC WTC Final) getting disrupted due to persistent rain during the course of the first five days, the International Cricket Council has confirmed that the game will go into the reserve day to make up for the time lost.

Prior to the WTC final, the International Cricket Council had released the playing conditions for the ‘Ultimate Test’ where it was revealed that the reserve day will come into play if the 450 overs aren’t completed on the designated first 5 days.

However, with two days out of five getting abandoned due to rain, it had become inevitable that the entire reserve day will have to be used.

The International Cricket Council, on Tuesday, confirmed the same.

The reserve day will start at 03:00 PM IST and the maximum duration of play is a minimum of 330 minutes plus the last hour.

A maximum of 98 overs will be bowled which also includes 15 overs in the mandatory last hour.

The on-field umpires will signal the start of the mandatory last hour.

If play is suspended for any reason other than normal intervals before the start of the final hour, then playing time will be extended to make up for the time lost.

The WTC mace will eventually be shared between two sides if the game ends in a stalemate after 98 overs of play on the reserve day.
