A reserve day (due to rain) has also been kept in the five-day Test match. If any time in this test match is wasted due to rain then the match referee can use this reserve day. There will be an equally long game in Reserve Day which will be gone in five days.
According to the ICC, ‘Reserve Day has been arranged to ensure a five-day match and it will be used only if the time spent within the regular five days is not repaid. “If there is a full game on all five days and the result of the match does not come out, the extra day will not be added and in which case the match will be declared a draw,” the ICC said.
Referee will decide
In the event of time wastage during the match, the ICC match referee will regularly tell the teams and the media how to use Reserve Day. The final decision on whether to use the reserve day will be made at the start of the last hour of play on day 5.
These three changes will be part of the finals
India plays its home matches in the SG Test and New Zealand plays with Kookaburra balls but Grade One Duke balls will be used in the final. Three changes to the rules of the game in international cricket will also be part of the WTC Finals. These were implemented during the current World Cup Super League series between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. These include rules related to short runs, players review and DRS review.
In case of short run, the third umpire will automatically review any decision of the on-field umpire for short run and will make his decision known to the on-field umpire before the next ball is bowled. Before the Decision Review System (DRS) for LBW is adopted, the captain of the fielding team or the batsman given out will be able to confirm with the umpire whether a genuine attempt was made to play the ball. The wicket area has been widened to the top of the stump to take DRS for LBW only.
