T20 World Cup 2024: No reserve day in place for 2nd semi-finals, match to be extended

T20 World Cup 2024: No reserve day in place for 2nd semi-finals, match to be extended

The ICC (International Cricket Council) and Cricket West Indies (CWI) have come together and allotted an additional time of 250 minutes for the second semifinal of the T20 World Cup 2024. It is worth noting that there will be no reserve day in place for the clash.

According to a report by Cricbuzz, arrangements have been made to finish the game on the same day. Furthermore, four hours have been allotted to the game so that the team won’t have to play, travel, and then play back-to-back on consecutive days.

Interestingly, the first semi-final of the tournament is in Trinidad on June 26, and it starts at 8.30 p.m. local time. A reserve day has been set for that clash, and should rain interrupt play, the match will spill over to June 27.

However, the second semi-final will be played in Guyana and will begin at  10.30 AM local time on June 27, and the clash will have to be finished on the same day. The ICC has allotted another 250 minutes for the game, which means that the umpires can wait for upto eight hours to finish the game, June 28 will be the travel day for the players, and the final will be on June 29.

“All four teams have exactly the same opportunity to finish a game. For performance reasons, to ensure teams do not have to ‘play, travel, play’ on consecutive days, the decision was taken to allocate the additional time for the second semi-final immediately post the game because the game is a 10.30 AM start, whilst the first semi-final is an evening start, which means it is not feasible to pay all additional time on the same day. This also ensures that fans in the stadium have the best chance of seeing a result on the day,” a source in the know told Cricbuzz.
