The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the playing conditions for the final of the ICC World Test Championship on Friday. The final of the World Test Championship will be played from June 18 in Southampton between India and New Zealand. Playing conditions are a kind of rules about what will happen in which situation and which team will be declared the winner in which situation.
According to the playing conditions prepared by the ICC for the World Test Championship, if the result of this great match between India and New Zealand is a draw or tie, then both the teams will be declared joint winners in this situation. If there is rain in the match or if the match is interrupted due to poor light, then the remaining overs of the match will be played on Reserve Day.
This match is to be held from June 18 to 22 and June 23 will be Reserve Day for this match. It was decided in June 2018, when the ICC World Test Championship was announced. Reserve Day is scheduled to ensure a full five days of play, and will be used only if the lost time cannot be returned through the general provisions of completing the lost time each day. If a positive result is not achieved after a full five-day game, there will be no extra day’s play and in such a situation the match will be declared a draw.
In the event of losing time during the match, the ICC match referee will regularly update the teams and media about how Reserve Day can be used. A final decision on the need to use Reserve Day will be announced at the scheduled start of the last hour on the fifth day. The match will be played at the Grade 1 Dukes Cricket Ball.
