The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is being played in the UK which is known for its rainy days. Ahead of the main tournament, Pakistan’s warm-up match against Bangladesh was rained out leading many to ask what happens if a match cannot be played.
There are no reserve days for league matches, which means if a match cannot be played both teams would get a point each. This won’t be the case for the semi-finals and final, with all three matches having reserve days. If the semi-finals and final are stopped during play, the match would continue from the same spot the next day.
If there is a tie in the semi-final, the outcome of the match would be decided by a super over. If for some reason the semi-final cannot be played, then the team which was ranked higher in league play would proceed to the final.
There will also be a super over in the final in case of a tie. However, if the match cannot be played or is left incomplete then both teams would be crowned champions.
Rain policy for ticket holders
According to the ICC’s official World Coup website, if play is restricted or does not take place at the Venue on the day for which a Ticket is valid, including any Reserve Day, the Ticket purchaser may claim a refund of the Original Sale Price of that Ticket (excluding fees) subject to there being: (a) 15 overs or less because of adverse weather conditions – a full refund; (b) 15.1 overs to 29.5 overs because of adverse weather conditions – a 50% refund.
